Todd Scarbrough: Evidence accumulates to give radiation oncology boost the boot in breast cancer whenever possible

Todd Scarbrough, Radiation Oncologist at Northeast Alabama Regional Medical Center, shared on X/Twitter:

“Evidence accumulates to give radiation oncology boost the boot in breast cancer whenever possible

For cT1-2N0-2a age <50, (higher dose) boost increases local control by ~2% at 10 years, but also increases moderate/severe scarring by ~20%

‘[LC] benefit does not justify the increased impact on cosmetic outcomes’
