Lumpectomy 2 years ago & just discovered a significant indentation. Advice please

Hi I’d appreciate your advice, I’ve had 2 previous benign lumpectomies. On Sunday I was fixing my hair in the mirror & got a shock at seeing a significant dent at my nipple area (where my scar is from 2 years ago.)


The indentation is only visible when I lift my arms up. It is so obvious there is no way I couldn’t have seen it before.


I thought at first is it scarring but why a dent & suddenly appeared 2 years later & this is not the area the original lump was removed from?


Has anyone experienced this? I’m currently awaiting for an appointment with the Breast Clinic.


Thanks x
