Local therapy for breast cancer: treatment choices and decision making.

Abstract

Treatment options for the woman diagnosed with breast cancer have changed considerably over time. Mastectomy was standard treatment for breast cancer 5 years ago. Today, breast conservation treatment (excision of primary tumor plus radiation therapy) is appropriate therapy for the majority of women with stage I or II breast cancer. Women now have options for therapy and can play a major role in deciding their courses of cancer care.
