This randomized phase III trial studies standard or comprehensive radiation therapy in treating patients with early-stage breast cancer who have undergone surgery.
* Clinically T1-3, N1 breast cancer (axillary involvement assessed by palpation, ultrasound, CT scan, MRI, PET scan) with pathologic confirmation at diagnosis.
