Breast-conserving therapy (BCT), consisting of lumpectomy followed by radiotherapy, has become the standard form of treatment for invasive breast carcinomas up to 4-5cms and is increasingly being used for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and larger tumours.1-3 However, with BCT for large tumours, cosmetic outcome is often poor.4,5 The tumour size in relation to the breast size is one of the most important factors when attempting to obtain a cosmetically favourable result.
