I have been recently diagnosed with grade-3 infiltrating ductile breast cancer. I will be visiting a surgeon for the first time on Wednesday and I have been reading some pamphlets about possible treatments.
I have lupus and the pamphlets have mentioned that people with lupus may not be able to have lumpectomies with radiation treatments since the radiation may cause lupus flares.
I was wondering if anyone on the list is also has lupus and what information you could give me.
I also am diabetic, but I have found less information on the possible impact of that illness on treatments.
Thanks for your help!
