The aim of the article is to present current trends and reports on breast cancer brachytherapy presented during ESTRO 38 (38th European SocieTy for Radiotherapy and Oncology Annual Conference) which was held in Milan (Italy) in April 26-30th, 2019. The study includes concise information about the provided sessions, lectures, debates, oral presentations and recognized poster presentations focused on breast cancer treatment with brachytherapy.
