Radiation Lumps - Tuesday, May 02, 2017 2:04 PM
Hello my fellow breast cancer peeps. I saw my breast surgeon today and she found 3 lumps right below where I had my mastectomy by my ribs. I just finished radiation 2 weeks ago. I was wondering if anyone has ever experienced lumps or hard nodules after radiation? Mine are by the bone and one is in the middle of my sternum and another next to it. I hope and pray its not a reaccurance. Any input would be greatly appreciated!!! Tracy

Hi Tracy,

It can be common to have lumps that are nothing more than scar tissue from surgery and radiation and I had one myself. It's quiet here of late but we have a closed group on facebook where you can get lots more replies, here's the link https://www.facebook.com/groups/1588741974737166/

Thank you, I will check it out. I get the results today of a biopsy they did a week ago. I'm nervous.
