Possible nerve pain?


I had a mastectomy a year ago and over the past couple of days I have had a slight pain which is sharpish and only lasts a few seconds and is on mastectomy side (left) and where I feel it is just under where the scar is… about an inch or so.    Yesterday I had it on and off all day and then today not at all until about 6pm… had it a few times but non in the last couple of hours.   Is it possible to get nerve pain after a year? Has anyone else had this.   Obviously if it carries on I will contact go.



Good morning Jayne,

This is a little worrying for you, breast pain after surgery is very common,  can go on for sometime,  however I think maybe call  your breast cancer nurse and have a little chat just to put your mind at rest. or the nurses on this site they are very caring and will point you in the right direction.

Wishing you well finger crossed for a good outcome, please let us know how you are doing.
