Hypofractionated Radiation Therapy After Mastectomy in Preventing Recurrence in Patients With Stage IIa-IIIa Breast Cancer

This randomized phase III trial studies how well hypofractionated radiation therapy works in
preventing recurrence in patients with stage IIa-IIIa cancer who have undergone mastectomy.
Hypofractionated radiation therapy delivers higher doses of radiation therapy over a shorter
period of time and may kill more tumor cells that remain after surgery and have fewer side
effects.
