Author
Abstract
In this narrative review, we aim to explore the ability of radiation therapy to eradicate breast cancer regional node metastasis. It is a journey through data of older trials without systemic therapy showing the magnitude of axillary therapy (surgery versus radiation) on cancer control. Considering that both systemic and loco-regional therapies were shown to reduce any recurrence with a complex interaction, our review includes surgical, radiation, and radiobiology consideration for breast cancer, and provide our view of future practise. The aim is to provide information optimise radiation therapy in the era of primary systemic therapy.
