I had an appointment with my consultant today. He sent me for ultrasound of the lump in my reconstruction. The radiographer said it was a fatty lump and nothing to worry about, but my consultant said it is unusual to get a fatty lump so many years post surgery and he would like to be sure what it is, so he did a biopsy and I have an appointment to go back next week. I’m not unduly worried, but obviously not totally relaxed about it either! I’ll post back with the results.
Sorry you have this problem. I had a skin sparing mastectomy and an implant recon 5 years ago. I was told there is a tiny but possible chance of getting cancer again in the remaining tissue, so to keep checking myself, especially along the scar line, and to get any concerns checked out. I felt lump about 18 months later, had an ultrasound and it turned out to be scar tissue around an internal stitch. They were keen to make sure and no one made me feel stupid. I'm sure it will be same for you. Good luck x
