Hard Lump 5 months after Lumpectomy


Re: Hard Lump 5 months after Lumpectomy

Janee, I had very hard breast tissue after lumpectomy.  I have had manual lymphatic drainage to the area and tissue massage.  It was done by a trained therapist at my local Haven Centre.  This is a charitable organisation which supports cancer patients and others who suffer from life threatening disease.  It has been very successful and the tissue has relaxed.  I think it is due to the fluid which rushes to assist with healing after surgery.  Anyway try and find out if there is a similar service in your area.  Take care.

Hard Lump 5 months after Lumpectomy

Had lumpectomy 5 months ago but now have hard lump where the original lump was removed. Has anyone else got or had something similar as I am really scared that the cancer has returned.
