    Radiation (External radiation ): I had 39 radiation treatments in 2010 for head and neck cancer. Currently have NSCC. I had 20 radiation treatments. The treatments I had in 2010 evidently left a lot of scar tissue. The current radiation treatments “woke up” the old and now I have been diagnosed with Radiation Induced Fibrosis. If I knew that this could be a side effect I would never have consented to radiation. Now I have something that has no cure. Tissue in the neck is getting “hard” for lack of a better term. Becoming more difficult to turn head from side to side. Mouth is getting smaller due to muscle tightening. Consider this before radiation. Ask your oncologist about RIF.
