A multidisciplinary approach to the management of locally recurrent breast cancer is essential. The complexities of the management of patients in this setting include discussions regarding the optimal surgical approach (breast, chest wall, and axillary surgery) and adjuvant treatment considerations (radiation/re-irradiation therapy and systemic therapy). Treatment has evolved to include the option of repeat breast conservation surgery, axillary staging, and radiation therapy through partial breast radiation techniques in selected patients.
