Radiotherapy acts as an important component of breast cancer management, which significantly decreases local recurrence in patients treated with conservative surgery or with radical mastectomy. On the foundation of technological innovation of radiotherapy setting, precision radiotherapy of cancer has been widely applied in recent years. DNA damage and its repair mechanism are the vital factors which lead to the formation of tumor. Moreover, the status of DNA damage repair in cancer cells has been shown to influence patient response to the therapy, including radiotherapy. Some genes can affect the radiosensitivity of tumor cell by regulating the DNA damage repair pathway. This chapter will describe the potential application of DNA damage repair in precision radiotherapy of breast cancer.
