Radiotherapy - Late Side Effects

Hello Everyone.

It has been a long time since I posted. I was diagnosed with BC in 2014, had a lumpectomy & Radiotherapy & was put on Anastrozole, which I have tolerated very well.

On Christmas Eve I discovered a lump in the same breast. I had to wait until doctors were open again and had the usual 2 week referral a very anxious time as you all will know.

My appointment was yesterday, was examined, had mammogram & a scan. It would appear that after 8 years the lump/thickening was due to my radiotherapy. Does anyone have any treatments that they use for this.

Sending positive thoughts to you all.
