In summer (July-ish) 2008 I had a breast reduction surgery. It looks wonderful. However, spring of last year I had a bit of pain last year in the right breast, but since it went away I just said "eh its still healing." Lately I've noticed that areas have pretty much hardened, one area in specific. I am trying not to be too concerned about it, becasue I am only 21 and in all likelihood with my surgery it is scar tissue or fat necrosis or with my age its fibroadenoma... I escpecially think it might be scar tissue because when lying down the lump is directly under the top of my nipple where there were sutures. There has been no change in shape, although my right breast feels slightly heavier than my left. As far as the shape, from what I can tell it is smooth, but has large, smooth lumps on it (shaped like images Ive seen of a popcorn fibroadenoma.) During my period my breasts tend to be bloat-y (on both sides) and the hard area comes to the surface, but doesnt really change. Occasionally while playing with the hard spot I can feel other lumps, which are squishy and kind of pop or disappear when squeezed.
Just wondering! Probably the answer is get it checked by my PS but does this sound like a scar tissue deal? Or a fibroadenoma?Or fat necrosis? Or should I be worried that it is cancer?
