    No. If you have chemotherapy or radiation for breast cancer, those treatments can potentially weaken your immune system. But breast cancer itself will not cause you to get sick more easily.

    I've got a cold too! With surgery in two days. I expect it is stress related- less sleep etc!

    The doctor told us chemotherapy lowers the immune system, so u have more chances to get sick.

    During the treatment, yes! But not after when your blood cells return to normal ranges!
