Late opening Wednesday 9am-7pm,
I previously had a bi-lateral mastectomy/ diep flat reconstruction approx 6 years ago. The cancer was only on my left side but it was recommended that I had a bilateral mastectomy due to family history. I have recently noticed a rash/ change in the skin of an area of approx 2cm just on top of the mastectomy scar on my right breast, which extends slightly below the scar as well. It has probably been there for approx 1 month now and hasn't got any larger. Is this anything to worry about? I cannot feel a lump and there is no pain associated with the area although I do have pain in my right breast. Just not sure if I need to get it looked at.
