    Default Is it dangerous to be around someone who just went through radiation for breast cancer?

    My friend recently found out she had breast cancer and I was wondering if it is dangerous to be around someone that went through radiation? Will it provoke cancer on me or affect me in any way?

    No, it is completely safe for her to be around others. Think of it this way, the people that do the radiation for the patients are around those very same people and many many others multiple times a week or even days, if it was dangerous they wouldn't be exposed to other people.

    No Of course not. There is nothing "catching" about Cancer, or the treatments FOR it.
