This session will focus on toxicity of radiation for breast cancer, with the theme of "looking harder" for the adverse effects of our treatment. It is true that the incidence of many complications is quite low. However, the breast cancer specific mortality improvement from radiotherapy is also a marginal improvement for many women. Hence understanding the risks of treatment and working towards mitigating them is important. There will be 3 speakers, each speaking for 15-17 minutes with a moderator and time for questions after each presentation. Late toxicities will include impact on reconstructive outcomes, lymphedema, cardiotoxicity, and second malignancy. The importance of quality-of-life and patient reported outcome tools will be discussed.
