Abstract

It is now widely accepted that cancer of the breast is a systemic disease and that some patients will not be cured even with the most extensive local treatment. This acceptance has resulted in a more conservative approach and participation of the patient in treatment planning. A number of factors influence the definitive surgical treatment for breast cancer. Important considerations include the size and histology of the lesion, the skill and experience of the multidisciplinary team, and the wishes of the patient.
