Depends tumor size: If tumor small and was non palpable but only defined on mammogram, if lesion with intraductal components smaller than 1 cm, and sentinel node bx neg. I would wait to hear about margins. Margins that are adequate about 1cm around lesion suggests lesion in high 90% cure without RT. If larger lesion then possibly RT and tamoxifen.
