How long was your radiation therapy?
I had 15 radiation treatments. They were targeted to the specific tumor site. I had lumpectomy in November 2018 for stage 1a invasive ductual carcioma. Radiation began the week before Christmas.

I just started my first of 30 treatments. 25 will be whole breast radiation, then the last 5 with be targeted to the tumor/ lumpectomy sites. I have IDC HER+, ER+, PR+. I was told the radiation plan is specifically tailored to each person’s cancer needs.
