    As far as I'm aware radiation therapy to the breast is fine for lupus. But I'd suggest talking it over with your Radiation Oncologist

    @Jensta I had a quick chat to m RO colleague and he said it is only contraindicated if your lupus is currently active an it depends on your skin integrity. If lupus not currently active then perfectly fine for radiation.  Hope that helps.
