Summary

This study is for patients with multiple ipsilateral breast cancers (MIBC). The purpose of this research study is to see if removing only the tissues from the 2 or 3 cancers in the patient's breast (breast conservation surgery) in combination with radiation to the breast, instead of removing the patient's entire breast (mastectomy) is safe in keeping the patient's cancer from coming back in the patient's breast. Patients will be asked to visit the study doctor for follow-up exams for up to 5 years after patients have completed WBI.
