Possible skin secondary?

I had invasive stage 3 bc in 2018 and had all of the usual treatments. Now have a small and hard lump on my chest. I don’t know whether or not to bother my GP.
Thank you for any reply

I think you probably already know that the answer to this is yes - bother your GP as any change could be important though hopefully it’s nothing . If you haven’t yet been discharged by your BCN then you may also be able to contact them directly .

Take care and let us know how it went


Hi @Georgie_Gee

As Joanne says contact your BCN, and do it today if you haven’t already.
Seeing your consultant will put your mind at rest.
Hope you are seen soon and all goes well xx

Yes, you must get it seen. This was how Liz o riordan (if you follow her) discovered her second recurrence. They just took the lump out with small surgery and she continued on meds. Has had a scan and no other spread thankfully so don’t leave it. Demand a biopsy or ultrasound. Sadly we can’t take risks or a wait and see approach. Good luck

Hi Georgie_Gee,

Thanks for posting.

Changes such as lumps in the breast and chest can happen for many reasons, but as @helen39, @Ahbc21 and @JoanneN suggest, it’s always best to get it checked out with your treatment team or GP. As @JoanneN says, it may be nothing but you won’t be bothering anyone by getting it checked.
