Abstract: 
Radiotherapy after conservation surgery has been proven to decrease local relapse and death from breast cancer, and is now firmly established in the management of early breast carcinoma. Currently, the challenge is to minimise the morbidity caused by this treatment without losing its efficacy. This review will be divided into two parts, with Part I focusing on the radiation factors contributing to late normal tissue complications after radiotherapy for early breast cancer. Three major normal tissue side-effects will be discussed: cosmetic outcome, cardiac complications and pulmonary side-effects.
