Description:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the side effects of partial breast re-irradiation given after a lumpectomy. The lumpectomy will remove the breast cancer and a limited amount of surrounding normal breast tissue. Following the surgery, you will receive three dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT) to treat only the area in the breast where the lumpectomy was performed. 3D-CRT tries to lower the amount of radiation that normal tissues receive, while still delivering the desired amount of radiation to your cancer and to areas that your study doctor thinks may have cancer cells.
