Abstract

The recent ten to twenty years have seen a substantial progress in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. A rapid development of various curative options has led to the improvement of treatment outcomes, while paying more and more attention to the aspects of quality of life and cosmetic effect. In our publication, we wish to outline certain trends in the development of modern treatment of breast cancer. Among topics discussed are new forms of molecular diagnostics, new approach to the idea of sentinel node biopsy, as well as new techniques for delivery of medical procedures, the increasing use of nomograms, progress in the techniques of breast conservative treatment, modern approach to occult breast lesions, the increasing use of neoadjuvant treatment and intraoperative radiotherapy.
