- Primary outcomeThe aim of this trial is to assess the additional value of (different levels of) OPS in patients with breast cancer who are candidates for breast conserving surgery, with regard to quality of life and satisfaction with cosmetic outcome and objective measurements of the final cosmetic result versus patients undergoing standard breast conserving surgery.
- Secondary outcomeSecondly this trial will examine the value of different quality of life scoring systems in evaluating satisfaction with cosmetic results in patients undergoing breast conserving surgery.

- Brief summaryBackground: Treatment of breast cancer has drastically evolved and less aggressive surgical operation was constantly noted. The last decade a better overall cosmetic result in breast conserving surgery (BCS) became more desirably partly because of increasing survival in breast cancer patients and by preservation of body image and quality of life (QOL), next to its primary goal of complete resection of the tumour. Currently, approximately 30% of the patients treated with classic BCT are disappointed with the cosmetic result after adjuvant radiotherapy. The focus of BCT has now shifted toward recognizing the potentially unfavourable resection defect and reconstructing this defect in an attempt to prevent deformity.

Study design and aim: The COSMAM TRIAL is an observational prospective cohort study. The aim of this prospective cohort study is to investigate the difference in quality of life and satisfaction with cosmetic result in patients with breast cancer undergoing breast conserving therapy surgery versus patients undergoing breast conserving surgery with oncoplastic breast surgery stage I and II

Methods: All female patients, that are eighteen years or older, with pathology proven breast cancer eligible for BCS, who are referred to our outpatient clinic from, July 2015, will be evaluated for inclusion in this study. Before surgery and both one month and one year after surgery photographs of the breast will be taken to score cosmetic result both qualitative and quantitative by using an expert panel, the patient and its possible partner and BCCT.core software. At the same time points the patient will be asked to fill out a general questionnaire and QOL will be measured by using the BREAST-Q BCT questionnaire, EORTC-QLQ and EQ-5D-5L. Our team will collect diagnostics and treatment characteristics during treatment.
