Radiation Therapy for Breast Cancer
Who Can I Talk to About my Treatments?
Your doctor can answer questions about side effects, the goals of your treatment, and how the cancer is responding to radiation.
A hospital social worker can discuss your feelings about cancer, family concerns, financial issues, and other aspects of your personal situation. You may also get help with housing or transportation.
Great support and practical tips can come from talking with other people with cancer. Ask your doctor or social worker how to find good support groups near you or online.
What Happens After Radiation Therapy?
You'll see your doctor for follow-up exams and diagnostic X-rays. Your doctor will tell you how often to come in.
