I have been told that most people that receive radiation over a period of time lose hair at the spot of entry and develop a type of sunburn. Mine has already cleared up about a week and a half after it appeared. I have not heard anything about skin cancer developing and I had asked the doctors. This treatment has been done for decades and I have yet to find an incidence of skin cancer, not to say a report is not out there. The "sunburn" appears on all patients at the point of entry. Prostate, brain, kidney, breast and other points included. In my case it was very minor. Some people with more sensitive skin can develop a rash and dry flaky skin.
