Hi Heal,
I wish I could be helpful but I don't know the answer. Do you have a breast care nurse that could advise you?

No experience with rads but the skin might lose some elasticity could be the reason. Also better to be forewarned incase it does happen. You do need to hear from someone with experience Im sorry. The forum is very quiet st the moment.

All the best. :hugs:

Can breast size increase after radiotherapy?

Postby Heal » Tue Oct 01, 2019 11:41 pm

Hello lovely ladies,
My surgeon has told me that my breast size will likely be ‘frozen in time’ after radiotherapy and therefore will not ever increase in size even if I put on weight.
As I have lost 10kgs during chemotherapy, if he is right, I will end up with one B cup and one DD when I am healthy and put on weight again.
Has anyone out there had radiotherapy and found that their radiated breast increased in size with natural weight gain?
Or did it ‘freeze in time’ size wise?
I hope this makes sense! :heart:
