Lump on my reconstructed breast.


Re: Lump on my reconstructed breast.

Hi cmsquelch

Thanks for posting.

It’s important to report any changes you notice following a breast reconstruction as you have done.

Changes can occur for different reasons, But breast cancer can come back following a mastectomy so it’s important to find out what is causing the change you describe.

It’s good to read that you have an appointment tomorrow evening as your consultant will be able to discuss with you what might be causing the lump you have found.

Do call our Helpline if you would like have a chat about 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.

Best wishes

Lump on my reconstructed breast.


I was diagnosed with stage 1 grade 3 TN breast cancer 5 years ago. I had a mastectomy and reconstruction plus chemo.

i have yearly ultra sounds and mammograms. I have just felt a lump in my reconstructed breast and wondered if it’s possible to get breast cancer after a mastectomy? I have an appointment tomorrow evening to see my consultant.

many thanks
