Possible inflamation: fortunately nerves are quite resilient to radiation. Inflammation is quite possible postradiation treatments and it responds to anti-inflammatories well. Discuss this with your radiation Dr. You may be treated with a short course of anti-inflammatories to see if there is any benefit. If no resolution of the symptoms, progression, further imaging and referrals maybe be necessary.
