Objective To investigate and compare the clinical outcome of breast-conserving surgery＂ and modified radical mastectomy for patients with early breast cancer. Methods Clinical data of 100 patients with early breast cancer from January 2013 to September 2015 were retrospectively analyzed. 100 of patients were divided into breast conserving operation group （50 cases） and modified radical operation group （50 cases）. Statistical analysis were performed by using SPSS 19.0 software. Perioperative measurement data such as operation time, intraoperative blood loss and postoperative hospital stay were expressed as mean ± standard deviation （ ±s） , and were examined by using t test. The postoperative complications, breast cosmetic effects, local recurrence rates, distant metastasis rates and 1-year survival rates were expressed as ＂% ＂ and analyzed by Chi-square test. A P value 〈 0. 05 was considered as statistically significant difference. Results The operation time, intraoperative blood loss, postoperative hospital stay and postoperative complications in breast-conserving group were much less than those in modified radical group, with significant difference （P 〈 0.05）. The breast cosmetic effects in breast-conserving group was better than that in modified radical group, with significant difference （P 〈 0. 05 ）. There was no significant difference of the local recurrence rates, distant metastasis rates and 1-year survival rates between two groups （ P 〉 0.05 ）. Conclusion Both breast conserving operation and modified radical operation could achieve curative effect for patients with early breast cancer, however breast conserving surgery has the advantages of less injury, less blood loss, less clinical complications and better cosmetic resuhs, which is worth clinical promotion.
