No: No, unless your breast radiotherapy included permanent radiactive source implant which is very rare, at least in this country.
Dr. Albert Pizzo

Radiotherapy: Depends on what type of treatment you had. Ask your doctor if you are safe around others just to be sure, although you probably are no danger to others.
