The standard treatment for early breast cancer is a conservative management and postoperative radiation. In this review article, the most current evidence on local control and survival, boost, lymph nodes radiation, hypofractionation and targeted therapy association is included.

Key words: Early breast cancer, radiotherapy, local control.
