I had a lumpectomy with sentinel node biopsy August of 2006. It was followed by Mammosite treatment. Just recently, I have started having pain in that area, just like a dull ache. Has anyone else experienced this? I don't feel any lumps and mammogram in Oct was negative. Any thoughts?
Can you elaborate what Mammosite treatment is?
The breast pain could be secondary to many conditions. It could be muscle pain. You can try over-the-counter pain medications and see if the pain would go away.
Also, please consult your doctor for further evaluation.
I had a lumpectomy in 09/05, since then I've had a lump surrounding the incision site which is very tender and very painful. The slightest touch of clothing and showering is followed by an unbelieveable pain, which by the way, is almost constant. Also, there is tremendous itching surrounding the site. No one seems too concerned other than myself. I just wasn't expecting all this continous pain 5 years AFTER the initial surgery. Can you explain what may be causing these symptoms?
