Because knowledge has advanced in several fields related to the treatment of early breast cancer, revising the landmark 1992 standards for breast-conservation treatment by these four organizations is appropriate. The current report reviews and summarizes the literature and describes the selection and evaluation of patients, the technical aspects of surgical treatment and irradiation, follow-up care, and areas for further research.
