In brief: Surgery, Chemo, RT
Local treatment involves surgery +/- radiation therapy (rt); chemotherapy is the mainstay for systemic rx (how we treat the whole body).
Breast cancer surgery requires either a lumpectomy or mastectomy, along with (sentinel) lymph node biopsy. If a lumpectomy is performed, radiation therapy is necessary. If a mastectomy is chosen (or required), reconstruction is almost always an option.

In brief: Conventional&natural
Standard treatment is surgery followed by radiation &/or chemotherapy based on the type and degree of tumor. I believe such treatments are more successful with less side effects when combined with complementary approaches including diet, nutritional supplements, herbs & mind/body techniques.
The book breast cancer: beyond convention edited by mary tagliaferri & isaac cohen is an excellent resource.
