In brief: Discuss with MD
Discuss it with your radiation oncologist.
Many variables: type and severity of lung problems, side and location of the cancer, stage of the cancer. Newer x ray techniques can limit the radiation to the lung - make sure that the XRT center that you are going to has the latest equipment.
