Radioterapia mammaria ipsilaterale in pazienti con carcinoma mammario che si presenta con metastasi ascellari

"Patients with axillary lymph nodes metastases from an occult primary breast cancer are recommended treatment to the ipsilateral breast following axillary surgery to reduce the risk of local relapse. Our study provides further evidence that radiation  to the ipsilateral breast is a safe alternative to mastectomy, to which it is favourable given the cosmetic advantages of conserving the breast. No significant improvement in local control was seen using higher doses of radiotherapy than standard dose. Because of the risk of additional toxicity with increasing dose, standard dose radiotherapy is recommended"
