Long Term Side Effects from Radiation and MOPP ABVD Chemo

I am a 55 year old female who was diagnosed with Stage 2A Hodgkin's Lymphoma in late 1989.  I underwent chemo and radiation which caused a very early menopause at 33 years old.  I have had episodes of extreme shortness of breath off and on for the past 23 years and now it's getting worse.  I have for the past several years had recurrent bouts of pneumonia and acute bronchitis.   My doctor tells me I have asthma and will not discuss long term radiation side effects.

 

Now I just found a lump on my left breast.  I'm really scared.  Does anyone know if breast cancer can be caused by radiation?  I have to get it checked out this week but really don't want to go through the crap of chemo and stuff again.

 

Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

Nancy

Hi there, kelly kat.  Wow, did you find out about your heart.  How long ago did you have radiation for the Breast Cancer?  I'm sure I have heart problems but really haven't been checked out thoroughly.  Please let me know.
