As mine is a rare form of breast cancer there has not been much recent research that I can find on different post surgery treatment. What I have read is that there seems to be no difference in outcome with or without radiation. As mine is non invasive I don’t want very much treatment but my surgeon is of the mind that I will definitely have some radiation. I have a meeting with the oncologist on Feb .14th and am almost 4 weeks post lumpectomy. Any information would be appreciated
