Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cosmetic results of 80 patients with axillary lymph node negative or unknown T1 and T2 carcinoma of the breast who were treated with wide local excision, external beam radiotherapy and iridium-192 boost, were evaluated by the patient and the radiotherapist at 18-36 months. Their overall cosmetic results were assessed as good, very good or excellent by 80% of the patients. The radiotherapist's assessment was similar but in general the patients score was more favourable. After a follow-up of 24-72 months recurrence was found in only one patient at 40 months. This approach offers good cosmesis with low local recurrence rates in early breast carcinoma patients with negative axillary lymph nodes.
