Caption

Radiodermatitis on a patient's chest. This form of dermatitis results from cumulative radiation exposure. In this case, the patient had been receiving radiotherapy following a mastectomy operation (scar at lower left) to treat breast cancer. The skin has become red and inflamed in the area where the radio beam was focused during treatment. The skin may also start to peel. Radiodermatitis most often occurs in fair-skinned people receiving high doses of radiation.
