My mother has had the results. It is NOT cancer, but a broken sternum. It is because of the radiation, and because of that it has become porous. There is something that can be done about it, but it requires scissors through her back to her sternum to cut the nerves. Since she has already had back surgery when she was young, this is not an option. She may be paralyzed by this surgery. Then just live with the pain.
