About Us


NPO Kyoto Breast Cancer Consensus Conference (KBCCC) will change its corporate status and name to "General Incorporated Association Kyoto Breast Cancer Research Network (KBCRN)" from April 2015


A consensus is a high quality discussion where participants share the same fundamental principles. Our intention is to share the fundamentals discussed, collected and collated as a group and then encourage these fundamentals to be put into practice by medical professionals.

Improving the Quality of Life of patients as well as Breast Cancer Treatment is the core principle of this consensus. Participants will see a great deal of consideration created that will enrich the quality of the convention, held to the very highest international standards.

The collaboration and sequencing of different types of disciplines; Surgery, Radiation therapy (radiotherapy), Pathological diagnosis during individual clinical practice, indicates the importance of creating unification between methodologies. The construction of guidelines and analyzed content throughout discussions will empower and educate all participants.
