I did a quick Google search for Targit Iort. Although the technique has been around for many years it has only relatively recently been approved in the U.K. (2018). It maybe that not many hospital have the capability for using this technique yet. It sounds very good, as the radiotherapy apparently happens as part of your lumpectomy operation.
There is a separate Radiotherapy area on here. You could ask on there in case anybody had this technique. Or perhaps in the Surgery section. Both of these are in the Going through breast cancer treatment section
I'm sorry to hear you are feeling scared and are constantly worried about lymphoedema. If you have any questions or just want to talk things through, our Breast Care Nurses are available on our free phone Helpline 0808 800 6000.

Hi I have been recently diagnosed with Right Breast 12mm Grade 2 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma ER 8/8 PR 8/8 HER2 negative E cadherin positive .
I am having magseed & magtrace then a lumpectomy and Targit iort (Targeted Radiotherapy) on 29th March. Would be great to hear from anyone who has had this procedure.
Realy scared about the anaesthetic as I have Severe COPD and mild Bronchiectasis also have fungal lung disease Aspergillosis.
Also constantly worried about Lymphoedema.
I am 61
