Abstract

Breast-conserving treatment using radiation therapy has been established as an important alternative treatment to mastectomy for patients with early breast cancer. The increased use of this approach is based on results obtained from both retrospective and prospective studies which indicate that the rates of local tumor control and survival obtained are comparable to those seen with mastectomy, but are achieved with preservation of a satisfactory cosmetic appearance.
