DCIS, Radiation therapy on left side versus mastectomy
hello, this is my second time with DCIS, almost exactly same as about 7 years ago , but this time is on the left side... last time I had lumpectomy and radiation, which all went well. I’m concerned, does anyone know if it’s more harmful to your heart , getting radiation on the left side? Are there different types of radiation? I’m going to meet with the surgeon to discuss.. maybe mastectomy on left side only, versus lumpectomy and radiation, I don’t know of other options...I’ve already had MRI and ultrasounds,and found out today no more biopsies needed.
