With Radiotherapy Duration of Breast Cancer Is Shortened

Personalized and more effective therapies for cancer treatment come into prominence. There are exciting developments, especially in the field of Radiation Oncology. Anadolu Health Center Radiation Oncology Expert and Radiation Oncology Department Director Prof. Dr. Hale Başak Çağlar in appropriate patients, partial breast irradiation performed in the operating room where is the just tumor removed.

“Radiation treatment can be made where is the just tumor removed. With ‘Intraoperative radiotherapy’, that which is performed during the operation the treatment of the patient is shortened. With this method, some medical benefits can be provided by giving the patient time. Normally, surgery is performed to remove the tumor before breast cancer surgery, followed by radiation therapy for several weeks. However, in the option of intraoperative radiotherapy, radiotherapy is given immediately after the tumor is taken during surgery. Thus, 5 weeks of radiotherapy treatment can be completed in only 30-40 minutes.”
