Multifocal lesions not treatable (if opined by oncosurgeon) by breast conservation surgery..Then option is mrm surgery. Better to put the chemotherapy port the same time. If breast conservation is planned then Better to have frozen section to confirm margins. Specimen mammography to confirm complete removal of disease Post op radiation and chemotherapy both are mandatory.
