Breast cancer breakthrough

BOOSTED radiotherapy can effectively stop very early breast cancer
returning years after surgery, new research suggests.

The treatment should be considered in addition to surgery for patients
with cancer precursor cells, experts said.

Doctors analysed the records of 373 women who had conditions that can lead
to breast cancer.

The researchers found that the most effective approach was radiotherapy of
the whole breast followed by a boost.

It's DCIS. I thought they were referring to LCIS.
So it's not news...AFAIK
