To the Editor Wu et al1 retrospectively analyzed the patients who received nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM). They compared the distant metastasis-free survival and overall survival between patients with cancer recurrence at the nipple-areola complex (NAC) and without it. The 10-year distant metastasis-free survival rates were 89.3% among patients with cancer recurrence at the NAC and 94.3% among patients without recurrence (P = .95).
