    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I didn't have any family history of breast cancer, nor any risk factors. Why did this happen to someone as healthy as me.

    External radiation

    Radiation

    The skin side effects were very manageable with the ointments that the oncology nurses gave to me. I did experience some muscular pain in my chest both at the beginning and the end of treatment. This muscle pain went away about three weeks after finishing radiation.

    Painless Experience: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree
