It’s not possible for us to say for certain what’s causing the symptoms in your breast and if these are normal. Effects from radiotherapy treatment can last for months or years after treatment has finished. This includes a change in size of the breast and texture of the skin.
However, it’s important to get any changes checked out, and we encourage anyone who has had treatment for breast cancer to remain breast aware. Being breast aware means getting to know what your breasts look and feel like normally (for you) since treatment.
As you have noticed this change it would be a good idea to make an appointment with your GP to have it checked.
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 (Text relay prefix 18001).
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.
Please be aware that we will be closed on Monday 31 August due to the bank holiday.
