Abstract

We are presenting results of our treatment during 3 years (1993–1995) in Greatpoland Cancer Centre.

We treated 67 women with early breast cancer performing breast conservative surgery and radiation therapy. For treatment we chose women with breast tumor up to 3 cm in diameter and unpalpable axillary lymph nodes. The therapy consisted of quadrantectomy and axillary dissection and then radiation therapy.

Chemotherapy was used for patients with histologically positive lymph nodes metastases. Due to the local recurrence the mastectomy was performed in four patients. Five women were treated with cytostatics because of metastases to the liver and bones.

Three women died. The other women remain in the periodical observation in our hospital. These results have a preliminary character, because of the short follow up.
