This phase II trial studies how well hypofractionated radiation therapy works in treating patients with stage 0-IIB breast cancer. Hypofractionated radiation therapy delivers higher doses ...
The primary objective of this study is to determine whether lymphedema rates are decreased in patients requiring regional nodal irradiation (RNI) who receive hypofractionated radiation as ...
This randomized phase II trial studies how well hypofractionated radiation therapy works in preventing the return of tumor cells in breast cancer patients following surgery. Hypofractionat...
This phase II study is to evaluate the safety of hypofractionated whole breast radiation (HFRT) with simultaneous tumor bed boost(SIB) in women with early breast cancer after breast-conser...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the difference in late radiation morbidity between hypofractionated and standard fractionated breast irradiation given to women operated with br...
We report the incidence of ischaemic cardiac toxicity in a contemporary cohort of patients receiving conventional (CFRT) or hypofractionated (HFRT) radiation after surgery for early breast cancer and ...
Hypofractionated whole-breast radiation therapy (RT) has proved to be equivalent to conventionally fractionated RT in multiple randomized trials. There is controversy regarding its use in younger wome...
Radiation therapy is a key treatment of breast cancer. Elderly patients with associated diseases that modify their performance status do not tolerate long periods of daily irradiation. The objective o...
Screening mammography introduces low doses of radiation per examination and in regular intervals over decades for women who have annual screening. Further, advanced breast imaging modalities and follo...
Despite the psychological benefits and oncologic safety of postmastectomy breast reconstruction, most breast cancer patients do not undergo reconstruction. To better understand the patterns of breast ...
Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
A fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM and found in the BREAST. It may appear as a single large cyst in one breast, multifocal, or bilateral in FIBROCYSTIC BREAST DISEASE.
A common and benign breast disease characterized by varying degree of fibrocystic changes in the breast tissue. There are three major patterns of morphological changes, including FIBROSIS, formation of CYSTS, and proliferation of glandular tissue (adenosis). The fibrocystic breast has a dense irregular, lumpy, bumpy consistency.
Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.
