    I would prefer AC->T over TC in view of young age, pleomorphic histology and no comorbidities. Evidence shows that TC is non-inferior and DFS outcomes are equivalent based on ABC group of trials and PLAN B.
    Though you won’t be wrong if you choose TC to avoid cardiac risk and long duration of treatment.
