Is it usual to get a breast infection after radiation?

Possible: Radiation treatment can cause significant changes to the skin and breast tissue including ulcerations, redness, and long-term problems such as fibrosis (hardening). These changes can look similar to infection but usually are not; ask your radiation oncologist.
