Breast cancer is also called as 'breast carcinoma' is the most common cancer in women: is a cancer originating from breast tissues. In France, 10% of women diagnosed are likely to be suffering with breast cancer. There are a number of cases, each involving a specific processing order. We have decided to study only the case where radiotherapy is used as auxiliary treatment (that is to say, given after surgery). Indeed, in most cases, surgery is the first therapeutic weapon to be used against breast cancer. Post-operative radiotherapy is intended to treat and control cancer locally, not to reduce the size of the tumor as in the case of neoadjuvant therapy. About one third of people who undergo radiation therapy do not require other types of treatment. For others, radiation therapy is associated with chemotherapy or hormone therapy and sometimes both. But can radiotherapy by itself heal a patient with breast cancer after surgery? ?What results does radiotherapy provides to these patients? And why in some cases, chemotherapy and hormone therapy are needed to heal patients?
