just to let you know I saw the consultant and he thought it was fat necrosis or cyst but sent me for a scan and the scan confirmed it was fat necrosis due to the surgery on that side! I was so stressed and probably have done my body so much damage over the last 4 days of stressing about this. Thank you so much for your replies as they did give me reassurance despite being so stressed!
Thank you Bluebell. So nice of you ladies to reply and appreciate this. I guess I will only know once scan done so fingers crossed it’s just that .
Hi Simi7, I've had this too - twice had ultrasound and it was an internal stitch and/or scar tissue. The doc doing the scan said there was a neat scar on the outside, but a lot more inside. So it is absolutely possible that is all yours is, but you are right to get it checked. Try not to worry (so hard I know!!)
Hi Naid thank you for your message and that is reassuring to hear. I do hope that it’s something as simple as that. Thank you so much
I had surgery for DCIS in March last year. I developed a lump close to my scar but not attached to it. It was checked out a few weeks ago and I was told it's a combination of surgical clip, scar tissue and changes to the tiny amount of breast tissue I have left in that area.
Good luck on Monday xx
Thank you Mini mad, it’s just so hard not to worry. But thanks for sharing your experience. Life is just so hard! You think you’re doing well and then something happens and to have to go through this all again. Thanks again
try not to worry, this could just be scar tissue... i was recalled back on a mammogram, found suspicious looking area. Worried myself sick it was cancer again but turned out to be just scar tissue.
good luck on monday 💖
I was diagnosed with DCIS high grade last February and surgery (mammoplasty)and radiotherapy and now recently I’ve noticed a hard lump underneath my breast where there is a scar. It’s not felt on the skin only inside. As I had a mammoplasty the cut was made from under the breast and this is where I feel it. I’m so scared that it’s back again. I have an appt on Monday but just am so worried. Has this happened to anyone could it be because of the surgery scar?
