Tingling in place of radiation

Hi
I’m five sessions through my rad treatment. I’m experiencing a tingling sort of itchy sensation inside my breast where the tumour was located. Is this normal and is this expected to increase / decrease as the treatment progresses?

Hi SB

 

You get all sorts of weird sensations during and after rads. I had a tingling boob during rads and in fact 9 months later it still feels fizzy now and then. My skin also became very itchy and was advised to take anti-histamines for it - I don’t know if this helped the internal itching too but quite possibly. If in any doubt, it’s best to speak to a member of the rads team.

 

Good luck with the rest of your rads
