Breast-Conserving Surgery and Radiation Therapy in Patients With Multiple Ipsilateral Breast Cancer

RATIONALE: Breast-conserving surgery is a less invasive type of surgery for breast cancer and
may have fewer side effects and improve recovery. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x rays
to kill tumor cells. Giving radiation therapy after surgery may kill any tumor cells that
remain after surgery.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial studies how well breast-conserving surgery and radiation therapy
work in treating patients with multiple ipsilateral breast cancer
