Effect of Radiation for Breast Cancer on Breast Reduction Scars?
Had BR midAugust 2012, pathology found DCIS grade3 in right breast. additonal testing shows no other disease. May need radiation to reduce recurrence, would start Jan 2013. Generally healing well at this point, some tightness under breasts where scars are, no other complications from BR. non smoker. Question is: what effect of radiation would be on the scars from BR? Concerned that scars would become redder/tougher /irriated due to radiation. would appreciate comments- thanks
