    External radiation

    Radiation

    The treatment procedure was a piece of cake. I found it was very important to use a moisturizer recommended by my doctor. Used it 2x a day and it kept my skin relatively healthy. It felt like a really bad sunburn and after 28 days of treatment I found it uncomfortable to wear a bra.

    Painless Experience: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree
