Preserving Your Breast with
Breast Conservation Therapy (BCT)


BCT is a breakthrough procedure of lumpectomy + breast radiotherapy, resulting in similar local control rates as mastectomy, allowing women to keep their breast.

Modern surgical and radiotherapy techniques have further enhanced patient outcomes, such that surgical scars are much smaller and hidden. Oncoplastic surgery repairs the cavity from the lumpectomy and radiotherapy is given over much shorter duration, and side effects are usually no more than a mild sun tan!


Under good hands, thousands of women have been able to keep breast in good natural shape without the need for any complicated surgeries or procedures which may entail all kinds of risks.

However, there are some side effects such as skin changes, fatigue, and changes in texture of the breast tissue. These side effects are usually temporary and resolve after treatment ends. There may be long term changes to the breast tissue such as fibrosis (thickening and scarring of the tissue) or changes in breast size or shape.

Long term side effects are rare but can include lung irritation, cardiotoxicity, breast fibrosis, increased risk of rib fractures and second malignancy risk.
  • How is radiation done for breast cancer?
    Prior to starting radiotherapy, a CT simulation scan is first carried out. During simulation, you may be asked to lie in a specific position on the CT scanner, usually similar to the position you'll be in during actual treatment. Markers or tattoos may be placed on your skin to help the radiation therapists align your position properly during each treatment session. Next, your doctor and her team of radiation physicists and dosimetrists will plan the radiotherapy using the CT simulation scan to ensure that the radiation is targeted accurately and minimizes exposure to healthy tissue. Once the plan is ready and is approved to be safe by the doctor, treatment can be carried out. During each treatment session, a machine called a linear accelerator delivers the radiation to the patient.
  • Can breast radiotherapy cause lung damage?
    A small part of the lung will be included in the radiation treatment field and a small proportion of patients may experience radiation pneumonitis which is inflammation of the lung caused by the radiation. This is a treatable condition with oral medication.

    No, it does not affect the immune system. Radiotherapy is targeted at the breast tissue and will not cause any changes in immunity.
