  Purpose

Two hundred and sixty patients with breast cancer will be accrued into the study. After inclusion in the study, all the patients will be randomized into two arms. Arm 1 will receive Tamoxifen given concurrently with radiotherapy while in Arm 2 radiotherapy will be given followed by tamoxifen sequentially. The patients will be stratified for the following factors: a) BCS (Breast conservative surgery) versus MRM (modified radical mastectomy) and b) central lung distance (CLD) > 2 cm.

Patients in both arms will continue tamoxifen for a period of 5 years. The patients will be evaluated by high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) (baseline and at 2 years), serum transforming growth factor (TGF) beta levels (baseline and at 6 months) and diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (DTPA) aerosol clearance half life (baseline and at 6 months).

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Concurrent Tamoxifen and Radiotherapy
ARM 1 will receive Tamoxifen given concurrently with radiotherapy. Tamoxifen will continue for a period of 5 years.
Drug: Tamoxifen
260 patients of breast cancer will be accrued into the study. After inclusion in the study, all the patients will be randomized into two arms. ARM 1 will receive Tamoxifen 20 Mg once daily given concurrently with radiotherapy while in ARM-2 radiotherapy followed by tamoxifen 20 mg once daily sequentially.
Radiation: Radiotherapy
260 patients of breast cancer will be accrued into the study. After inclusion in the study, all the patients will be randomized into two arms. ARM 1 will receive Tamoxifen 20 Mg once daily given concurrently with radiotherapy while in ARM-2 radiotherapy followed by tamoxifen 20 mg once daily sequentially.
Active Comparator: Sequential radiotherapy and tamoxifen
ARM-2 shall receive radiotherapy followed by tamoxifen sequentially. Again tamoxifen will continue for a period of 5 years.
Drug: Tamoxifen
260 patients of breast cancer will be accrued into the study. After inclusion in the study, all the patients will be randomized into two arms. ARM 1 will receive Tamoxifen 20 Mg once daily given concurrently with radiotherapy while in ARM-2 radiotherapy followed by tamoxifen 20 mg once daily sequentially.
Radiation: Radiotherapy
260 patients of breast cancer will be accrued into the study. After inclusion in the study, all the patients will be randomized into two arms. ARM 1 will receive Tamoxifen 20 Mg once daily given concurrently with radiotherapy while in ARM-2 radiotherapy followed by tamoxifen 20 mg once daily sequentially.
