Re: Core biopsy swelling

My lump does feel bigger after since I had the core biopsy (nearly 2 weeks ago) and it's still bruised. The nurse told me it would be like that, so I haven't worried about it. I asked my surgeon the same question about it growing - he said a couple of weeks makes no difference.

Re: Core biopsy swelling

I had mine about three weeks ago now and it still feels alittle tender and it feels like it has grown. But apparently that's normal. Xx

Re: Core biopsy swelling

Hi Lyn, I had terrible swelling for a month after core biopsy, I was convinced the lump was growing by the day. Dr advised me this was internal bruising etc. I still had a hard lump when I had my bilateral mx last week.

Dear Lyn

 

It sounds as though you could benefit from calling our freephone helpline 0808 800 6000.  It is open 9-5 Monday to Friday and 10-2 Saturday.  They are breast cancer specialists and will be able to help you with your questions.

 

I am sure it will not be long before you have other forum users replying and offerning support.

 

Best wishes

Core biopsy swelling

Hi, I am newly diagnosed with grade 3 triple negative BC. I have BRCA1 gene and was due for preventative mastectomy on 7 November, so this was all a bit of a shock!

 

My query is, I had a core biopsy 2 weeks ago, I still feel very sore and the lump feels like it has grown. Can you tell me if you think I could still be swollen after two weeks, or whether the cancer could have grown within this time?

 

Thanks
