The new lump that your wife can feel on the previous mastectomy site could be a scar tissue or ( I hope not) a breast cancer recurrence.Please tell your wife to have it checked out by her surgeon/Oncologist to be more certain of the cause. If a biopsy is recommended I hope that it turns out to be scar tissue or other benign pathology.
Take care and best of luck to both of you...
Zouzi is right it could be either one. The best thing is to go back to surgeon or oncologist and be rechecked. I know that this is hard to deal with and sometimes it will get to be to much. My mother fought Breast cancer for 8 years. The family just stood by our sides and helped as much as possible. She had the same thing to happen to her and it turned out to be scar tissue but this is not something to just put off. It really needs to be checked as soon as possible.
Thank you so much for your information. We did seen her oncologist and referred her to a dermatologist and his suggested to have it CT scan which we did. We don't know the result yet but today they called my wife and we are schedule to see a surgeon on in 2 days to discuss what's the next steps. Again thank you so much
If you don't mind, please update us after you and your wife have met with the surgeon.
Best wishes to you both!
Thank you so much to you all. I will give you the update as soon we found out what the prognosis is.
Hello to all,
My wife's ct scan result was negative but they only mention the left breast. When we seen the surgeon, she recommended to have a biopsy to make sure findings are accurate. She wil have the biopsy done this coming Wednesday. Wil update you guys as soon we have the result. Thank you.
Very glad to know that the CT scan was negative and thank you for letting us know .
Having a biopsy as suggested by the Surgeon is a very good thing,just to make sure that all is fine.
Wishing your wife an uneventful biopsy and most of all favorable results!
God bless both of you...
