I think that others will agree that after the op there are numerous lumps and bumps. I had my operation on 2nd January and have a lump which I think may be from the operation. I have seen onchologist who has not raised any concerns. i also have the long vein type under the breast where the lump was removed. Take care sue x
I think this might be Mondor's cording. I had several of these following WLE/SNB (before radiotherapy) running under my breast and down across my ribs. They were very tender/painful at first but now, 9 months on, have almost gone away. There is information here about them (my BCN had not heard of them but I had them confirmed by my surgeon at a follow-up visit):
I'm sorry, don't know how to do it as a link but information can be found on the Breast Cancer Care website under the Benign Breast conditions tab if it doesn't work as a link.
