Abstract

The overall rates of BCS have remained stable or slightly increased over the past decade in the United States. The CPM rates have markedly increased while unilateral mastectomy rates have decreased. Increasingly, more women are not receiving RT after BCS, particularly high-risk women. These trends have important potential untoward consequences. Strategies are being developed to ensure adequate local therapy for breast cancer patients.
