BACKGROUND: In the past a mastectomy was the first approach of treating breast cancer. Oncoplastic techniques combined with breast conserving surgery (BCS) and radiotherapy has become an alternative to mastectomy in patients with non-metastasized breast cancer. The aim of this study was to analyse the amount and types of complications occurring after oncoplastic BCS before and after adjuvant radiotherapy and the delay of adjuvant therapy due to the complications. METHOD: A retrospective study based on all patients who received immediate oncoplastic BCS by a plastic surgeon at two medical hospitals in The Netherlands between 2013 and 2015...

Occult breast cancer, which develops as a metastatic lesion with no primary tumor detected in the breast, is a rare breast cancer. A 68-year-old female patient particularly complained of the presence of a right axillary mass. The mass in the right axilla was palpable, but no tumor was found in both the breasts on palpation, ultrasound examination, or MRI. Partial breast resection and axillary lymph node dissection were performed following a diagnosis of invasive ductal carcinoma by core needle biopsy. There was no mammary gland tissue present around the tumor due to the pathology of the disease, and the tumor was diagnosed as occult breast cancer...

The single agent activity of PARP inhibitors (PARPi) in germline BRCA mutated (gBRCAm) breast and ovarian cancer suggests untapped potential for this new class of drug in breast cancer. The US Food and Drug Administration has approved three PARPi (olaparib, rucaparib, and niraparib) so far to treat certain ovarian cancers, including those with gBRCAm and olaparib for treatment of gBRCAm breast cancers. Several PARPi are now under clinical development for breast cancer in the various treatment settings. Recently, two phase III trials of olaparib (OlympiaD) and talazoparib (EMBRACA) demonstrated 3-month progression-free survival improvement with PARPi compared to physician's choice single agent chemotherapy in metastatic gBRCAm breast cancer...

REVIEW
Ismail Jatoi, John R Benson, Ian Kunkler
Radiotherapy is an integral component of loco-regional therapy for breast cancer. Randomized controlled trials indicate that increasing the extent of extirpative surgery primarily reduces the risk of local recurrences, while the addition of radiotherapy to surgery can also reduce the risk of distant recurrences, thereby lowering breast cancer-specific mortality. This may suggest an "abscopal" effect beyond the immediate zone of loco-regional irradiation that favorably perturbs the natural history of distant micrometastases...

Kaitlin M Christopherson, Benjamin D Smith
Radiation therapy is used in many cases of both early and late breast cancer. The authors examine the role of MR imaging as it pertains to radiotherapy planning and treatment approaches for patients with breast cancer. MR imaging can assist the radiation oncologist in determining the best radiation approach and in creating treatment planning volumes. MR imaging may be useful in the setting of accelerated partial breast irradiation. Radiation oncologists should attend to MR breast images, when obtained, to ensure that these imaging findings are taken into consideration when developing a radiation therapy plan...

External beam radiotherapy (EBRT) is one of the curative treatment options for prostate cancer patients. The aim of this treatment option is to irradiate tumor tissue, while sparing normal tissue as much as possible. Frequent imaging during the course of the treatment (image guided radiotherapy) allows for determination of the location and shape of the prostate (target) and of the organs at risk. This information is used to increase accuracy in radiation dose delivery resulting in better tumor control and lower toxicity...
