New mole

I had Stage 2 ductal oestrogen + BC, lumpectomy and one node out in October, radiotherapy in Jan, all good signed off.
Did my breast check last night and putting bio oil on my breast scar when I noticed a new mole near my nipple. Not suspicious looking 3mm long. Should I be worried?
I’ve been discharged to PiFU and can contact the BC nurses with any worries,

Hi romabe99
Oh bless you that’s tough, hopefully it’s absolutely nothing but if it was me I’d definitely ring my BCN and let them reassure me or help me check everything out.
No point you worrying about it all by yourself for the sake of picking up the phone lovely.
Sending you lots of positive thoughts xx

Hello romabe99

Thank you for your email. It is good to read that you remain breast aware and continue to check your breasts regularly. This will help you understand what is normal for you after your breast cancer treatment.

As @tt59 suggests, you can contact your breast care nurse to discuss your worries. They may want to see you in the clinic to check the mole. .

After breast cancer treatment it is normal to be concerned about any new changes or other aches and pains, mostly this lessens as the time goes on. You may be interested in our Moving Forward resources that are for people who have had a diagnosis of primary breast cancer and have come to the end of their main hospital treatment within the last 2 years. They include our Moving Forward booklet and Moving Forward courses.
