Abstract

The natural history of breast cancer favors a presentation in older patients, and with our aging population the management of breast cancer in geriatric patients has growing importance. Many of these patients will be diagnosed at an early stage. Thoughtful utilization of adjuvant radiation therapy for patients with early stage tumors, tailored within the context of comprehensive geriatric assessment, will optimize clinical outcomes and minimize costs and morbidity.
