In breast cancer surgery, there has been a major shift toward less invasive local treatment: from extended or radical mastectomy to modified radical mastectomy, from modified radical mastectomy to breast conserving therapy, and from routine axillary lymph node dissection to sentinel lymph node biopsy. Many breast surgeons have experienced an evolutionary progression of surgical management of breast cancer. However, there is an increasing demand for minimally invasive and non-surgical treatment methods for patients with small breast cancer. Radiofrequency (RF) ablation is the most promising among non-surgical ablation techniques in the treatment of breast cancer, although it is still in the investigative stage. Nevertheless, surgery still plays an integral role in the treatment of breast cancer, because local therapy is important for enhancing survival in the presence of systemic therapy. In clinical practice, surgical oncologists must individualize treatments, selecting a surgical or non-surgical procedure that provides the best local control, does not compromise the chances of cure, and achieves the best cosmetic results.
