Inadequate margins may result in high local recurrence, and excessively large resections may lead to poor cosmetic outcome without oncologic benefit. METHODS A comprehensive search for published trials that examined outcomes after adjuvant RT after BCS for DCIS was performed using… CONTINUE READING
