I had 6.5cm malignant, estrogen+ tumour in my R breast with positive axillary lymph nodes two years ago and completed treatment 1 year ago.
About 1 month ago, I found a 5cm x 7cm red swelling on the upper inside of my right arm (near but not in axilla). It was hot and tender. The heat and redness went after 2-3 days and the swelling reduced but I can still feel lumps under the skin and the overall area is still slightly swollen.
Just over a week ago, I had a similar occurence on the right side of my neck, in the hollow above my clavicle. There is also what feels like a hard chord like vein running from the neck lump up towards my ear (perhaps a vein?). I have had similar occurences in the past in my abdomen and currently have another slight one in my left armpit.
I have also had a few days in the past month when I felt extremely tired and feeble. I complained at the time that I thought my post chemo and radiotherapy fatigue would be behind me.
Any ideas on what this could be? Obviously, given the location on my neck, I am concerned about spread via the lymphatic system. Could they be small clots in my veins? What do I need to do?
Yes, and please let is know what it is because I would be very interested having a similar history as you and also now beginning to have similar problems that come and go. Thanks. I am about 7 months behind you, also very large tumor in right breast and had many positive lymph nodes.
