2. I had radiation and chemo after

a lumpectomy; 5 years later they found cancer in the same breast and I had a masectomy two years ago. The radiation caused many problems especially if lymph nodes are taken. In the last two years I have read much research and findings that radiation is not always needed and the side effects are not worth it. I would surely get more opinions from oncologists, not just surgeons, if I was diagnosed now.
