Life conservation.

While decades were spent establishing a survival equivalency for breast-conservation and mastectomy in the treatment of breast cancer, this point-counterpoint explores why that may no longer be the case. And by that we mean that breast-conservation is actually the superior approach, primarily due to a concurrent rise in sophistication and therapeutic index of radiation at the same time mastectomy has seen a de-escalation of sorts with skin- and nipple-sparing techniques. | Royce & Thompson, Lancet Oncol 2020
