Abstract

Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) is a useful approach in the treatment of many breast cancers. One of the main advantages of NACT is the possibility of breast conservation surgery in patients who would otherwise require a mastectomy. Most literature on NACT focuses on the effectiveness of different chemotherapy regimen and subsequent mastectomy rates. There is little guidance in the literature on aspects of individual patient management and decision making during NACT. This paper considers practical management advice where NACT is considered and adopted. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
