ConclusionsThe study suggests that quality of life and body image are temporarily impaired due to RT. Around one third of patients score their long-term AO as unfavourable. These results should be discussed with the patient and could help in the decision making of the treatment plan and in the clarification of the patient ’s expectations.

ConclusionsIORT is a safe and effective treatment. Rigorous selection is important to achieve excellent local control results.

ConclusionsWomen who received NET had similar rates of BCS compared to women who received NAC. Those who received NET for longer treatment durations had increased odds of BCS and downstaging compared to women who did not receive neoadjuvant therapy.

ConclusionsThe results of this study showed that lung volume changes were not a cause for concern in breast cancer patients. There are three reasons to support this conclusion. Lung volume changes and percentage reductions in LVP for each Gy increase of MLD and each percentage increase of V20 in each lobe were small; patients were asymptomatic during the follow-up period; and LVP showed partial improvements after 6 months.

CONCLUSION: Patients with high anxiety at initial consultation were nine times more likely to undergo aggressive surgery compared with patients with low anxiety. These findings underscore the need for early identification of patients who may benefit from tailored supportive and educational services to address sources of anxiety and knowledge gaps. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: The prevalence of anxiety among women with newly diagnosed breast cancer is being increasingly acknowledged. However, health care providers have not fully appreciated the impact of anxiety on the surgical management of patients with early-stage bre...

AbstractPurposeIt has been accepted that radiation therapy (RT) for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) has no survival benefit despite increasing local control. However, a recent large database study reported a small but significant benefit. Using a Korean population-based large database, we examined the survival benefit of RT for DCIS after breast-conserving surgery (BCS) and analyzed which subgroup might derive benefit from it.MethodsData from 6038 female DCIS patients who underwent BCS with or without RT between 1993 and 2012 were included in this study. We used propensity score analysis to control for differences in basel...

We examined the hazard function adjusted for adherence to surveillance mammography to examine variations in LR risk and the effect of RT over time.MethodsCrude hazard estimates for the development of LR in a population cohort of DCIS treated by BCS  ± RT were computed. Multivariable extended Cox models and hazard plots were used to examine the association between receipt of RT and risk of each outcome adjusted for baseline covariates and adherence to mammography.ResultsPopulation cohort includes 3262 women treated by BCS; 1635 received RT. Median follow-up was 13  years. LR developed in 364 women ...

ConclusionsThe presence of multiple foci of MI in DCIS is associated with higher 15-year risks of invasive LR after breast-conserving therapy compared to women with pure DCIS but treatment with whole breast and boost RT can mitigate this risk.
