This study has investigated skin toxicity in breast cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy. The study was conducted in 1401 at a radiation therapy center in Yazd city and included 30 patients who have undergone radiation therapy using conventional and hypofractionation methods, and in which the whole or part of the breast has been exposed to radiation. Skin complications of grade skin toxicity during treatment and within 40 days after radiotherapy have been evaluated in both methods. Results have shown that four people (26.6%) have had grade three and six people (40.0%) have had grade two skin toxicity, with conventional treatment having caused more skin complications compared to hypofractionation, which has caused fewer skin toxicity without reducing efficacy. Additionally, the ratio of skin toxicity in the conventional technique has been higher than in the hypofractionation technique after 40 days of radiation therapy. The study has concluded that hypofractionation has resulted in less skin toxicity than conventional treatment.
