Abstract

Treatment options for women with newly diagnosed breast cancer include breast conservation therapy and mastectomy with or without reconstruction, which provide equivalent cancer outcomes in properly selected patients. Although multiple studies have evaluated breast surgery quality-of-life outcomes, the data are inconsistent. This factor is important to consider when counseling patients and defining surgical quality measures.
