Re: ITCH

Hello @CARCAMP 

Thank you for your message. 

Finding a new symptom when you’ve had treatment for breast cancer  can be worrying. As it’s not possible for us to say if this itching around your nipple is something to be concerned about, it’s important to report any new and persistent symptoms you experience to your treatment team or GP so these can be checked out. 

If you can’t think of anything you’ve done recently that might have caused the itching, like using a different soap powder or shower gel, it may be best to get it checked for your peace of mind.  

We are currently providing an Moving Forward online course and starting to offer some face-to-face courses. The course aims to provide support and information to those adapting to life after treatment and. is open to people who have had a primary breast cancer diagnosis and have finished their hospital-based treatment within the last two years. You can find out more and register for the programme on our website.   

Do call our Helpline if you would like to talk this through or have any further questions. Your call will be confidential, and the number is free from UK landlines and all mobile networks.  

The number is 0808 800 6000, (Relay UK -prefix 18001). 

If you would like a nurse to call you do complete this form. Ticking the box agreeing to a call back. 

Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am -1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.  

Best wishes 

Grete

Hi had BC under left nipple.

Had lumoectomy then two further surgeries to get clearance, that was a year ago.

For past 4/5 weeks i have an itch around my nipple, is this something to be concerned about.
