I had radiation in 2001 with Breast Cancer. Now I may have lung/bone cancer. I have been told that you cannot have radiation more than once. Is this true?

i dont think so...my wife barb has had 25 radiation treatments to lung, 20 to her neck and 25 as pci and they still feel they can give her more.I think that they cant do too much in one area, but if you had breast cancer before and now in another location you should be ok
