Hello. Thank you for posting.

The long-term effects of radiation depend on the technique of irradiation, the dose and the location that was irradiated. Scar tissue is a possibility caused by (some) cancers and treatments. Your radiologist or oncologist can tell you more as they are privy to the specifics of your condition and treatment plan.
