A Randomized Controlled Trial of Routine Shave Margins Versus Standard Partial Mastectomy in Breast Cancer Patients

Conditions

Breast Cancer

What is the purpose of this trial?


This research study is designed to look at whether the routine use of shave margins (by
taking extra tissue at the time of partial mastectomy surgery) will reduce the chances of
having positive surgical margins requiring another surgical procedure, and whether this
affects the long-term chances of getting cancer back in your breast.
