I'm having Radiation for Breast Cancer, I had the simulation/planning process in mid September where they marked the skin with tattoos. Now my treatment has started, when I lie on the bed & get in position, can anyone tell me why they need to put more on my skin down, not only on chest but down as far as my navel. To me this seems a bit over the top.
I can only assume it's because something had changed since they did the initial markings, or perhaps they didn't get all of them done at the first instance. The only real way of knowing would be to ask them in your next session.
All the best
