If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, your physician will have an in-depth discussion with you about your treatment options. Radiation therapy is one type of treatment that may be included in your treatment plan. At Yale Medicine, our radiation oncologists work with a multidisciplinary team to devise a course of treatment that is personalized to your needs. 

“Over the last decade, there have been many improvements in how Yale Medicine delivers radiation therapy for breast cancer,” says Meena Moran, MD, director of the Breast Cancer Radiotherapy Program at Yale Medicine.
