 This patient had very huge left breast mass with axillar lymphnodes swelling. She was diagnosed as being inoperable at several hospitals, and treated with chemotherapy. because chemotherapy was not so effective for her, radiation therapy was consulted. We planed a palliative treatment plan. Though there were many lymphnodes in axillar area, dose were limited 40-45Gy for her QOL.

GTV:55-60Gy (Breast tumor), CTV:GTV + Axillar (Axillar area is limited 40-45Gy)
