Two months ago i had a simple mastectomy with sentinel node biopsy. Stage 1, no lymph involvement so no chemo or radiation. Since then, I have a hard area growing
immediately under the incision. It looks like a "hot dog
" under the skin. It runs the entire length of the incision, sticks out about an inch from my chest and is more than an inch deep at its "tallest" spot. I've asked my surgeon, who says it's not uncommon to get "lump
s and bumps" after mastectomy.
