Each month, we ask a breast cancer expert to respond to your questions on a specific topic during an ask-the-expert residency. Answers to select questions will be posted to our website on an ongoing basis throughout the month.


The topic for the month of September is:


Understanding Radiation Therapy


If you want to know about what radiation therapy is, what to expect during radiation treatment, and what side effects may be associated with radiation therapy and how to manage them, ask our expert your question using the form below.


While we make an effort to answer as many questions as we can, we are unable to answer all questions that are submitted. We will answer questions on an ongoing basis throughout September; check back for updates.


If you have an urgent question or would like to speak to someone in person, please call our free Helpline at (888) 753-LBBC (5222).

The information is general in nature. For specific healthcare questions or concerns, consult your healthcare provider because treatment varies with individual circumstances.
