Chronic RA, scheduled for radiation treatments for breast cancer, lupus test positive with low numbers. Guidance?

Hi. I have RA for years now and was recently tested for lupus , just got results which are positive with low numbers.I was told 142. Since I am suppose to get radiation treatments for breast cancer , I was told that having Lupus would not qualified me for radiation. My question is what does these numbers mean (142), and what can I expect . It is really Lupus? Thank you for your time, I am a bit lost
