Hi,
After radiotherapy for breast cancer: local side effects like reddening of the skin, soreness, discomfort and swelling in the region could be there. The breast could become hard due to fibrosis, swollen due to lymphatic obstruction, reddening due to blood vessel involvement called telengectasias. Clinically cough and breathlessness and pain in the arm occur in a few cases.
