Hi lovelies, I’ve been out of touch for a long time looking after my husband (who is doing well). I’ve just found a big lump under my arm on the same side as my breast cancer, it’s 9.41pm here and I’m panicking. I had lumpectomy (clear margins) and SNB (only a couple of lymph nodes, also clear) August 2016. After six weeks of radiotherapy I started tamoxifen. Scans in November were clear and check up in Feb with oncologist radiotherapist was good too. Can a lump just appear within a few days? It’s the size of a marble. Thanks Lee xx
