Breast cancer continues to be one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers and affects millions of women worldwide annually. In the recent years, the standard of care of the surgical treatment of breast cancer has shifted from radical mastectomy to breast conserving therapy (BCT), which involves partial mastectomy (PM) with radiotherapy. Breast conserving therapy has been shown to have similar oncologic efficacy with improved cosmetic outcomes when compared to mastectomy, making it the preferred option by both breast cancer patients and their surgeons.
