I have had my left breast removed by choice after my right mastectomy including the nipple but have noticed the scarring has become quite painful it was removed in 2017 is this normal?
Hi Ajhaskins, My treatment knowledge personally is only of lumpectomy (twice) . However if I were you I would contact your GP or Breast Cancer Nurse for further advice. It could well be nothing to worry about but as you are in pain it should be investigated,I feel.Scar lines do change over time and it may just be nerve endings settling. Sending hugs xx
