In my recent reading, Ben Bova's Asteroid Wars has a character in the first book who has hit his lifetime limit of radiation exposure and knows he'll probably die if he goes back out, but when the chance comes he goes anyway.

I liked that part but unfortunately to get there I had to wade though the 85% of the book that is poorly-written corporate maneuvering with annoying sexual politics for spice, so this is not a rec.

And there's Heinlein's "Requiem", of course.

I'm sure I've read others but nothing is coming directly to mind. :/
