An FDA approved procedure called MammoSite breast brachytherapy is said to be the best treatment for breast cancer (with an excellent cosmetic outcome).

Procedure Highlights

a. MammoSite sends radiation following lumpectomy for early-stage breast cancer.
b. This technique substantially lessens the time for post-surgical radiation therapy from 6 weeks to 5 days.
c. Soon after lumpectomy the MammoSite device is used to direct the radiation to the breast tissue that is vulnerable to cancer recurrence.
d. Using MammoSite therapy, there will not be any complications (redness or peeling of breast skin) that are caused by conventional radiation therapy.
