breast

Avatar f tn It is right on the incision in that area, this is what made me wonder if it was scar tissue. It comes and goes and is not a constant pain, but when it does occur it is painful and annoying.

My question is there anything they can do for painful scar tissue its so bad i cant wait a bra at all . i have had a mamma gram done last year the breasts were cleared but my pain isnt in the breast its around the incision .
Avatar n tn I have had three repairs on breast implant scar tissue. I am experiencing pain in THE left breast and i know it is scar tissue. It is very scary but some of us just seem to produce scar tissue more than others. Iam one of them. Keep up with your mammograms. I Hope your pain Will subside with time.
Avatar f tn I had about 8 pounds removed a year ago and am still having pain and burning and lots of scar tissue in both breast. I have to have skin graphing since my breast became infected and had to have the dead tissue removed. The doctor that done the skin graph was not the one who done the reduction and removed clamps in one breast. I have lots of lumps and soreness. Does anyone know of anything that can be done to help me?
Avatar n tn Hi, I had a breast reduction 20 years ago now so obviously my healing is well over with and the scarring is now minimal. However, I DID have particular problems with my left breast as I got an intense infection about 3 weeks after surgery. My breast literally opened on the vertical stitching scar and took a long time to heal, the scarring is fine now and although I didn't have pain along the scar lines, they are lumpy in certain areas and they too become sensative during PMS.
Avatar f tn They did find a cyst in my left breast and just waiting to hear from the doctor about either draining it or removing it. They did inform me that the scar tissue from my reduction caused the cyst. I'm wondering if this is normal for breast reductions.
Avatar f tn The only thing she could think is that maybe it's the body's way of responding to the scar tissue. (?) I have tried looking it up in medical books and all over the internet, and I have come up with nothing. I'm relieved to hear that I'm not alone. I thought I was going crazy.
Avatar f tn I went in to get a CT a couple of years ago and was told that it was only excess breast tissue; thus I am not too worried. However, I do feel slight pain if I press on it (I assume it is normal because the rest of my breasts are sensitive in the same way). I also am very self conscious about the way it looks when I wear sleeveless shirts. I am considering getting it removed. For those of you who have gotten your excess tissue removed, was it done surgically? What was the price range?
Avatar n tn HI, I HAD A BREAST REDUCTION IN DECEMBER 2006. BEFORE THEY WOULD DO SURGERY I HAD TO HAVE A MAMOGRAM. IT CAME BACK FINE ONLY WITH A FEW SPOTS THAT THEY SAID WERE CALCIFICATIONS. SURGERY WENT WELL AND I HAVE RECOVERED. I CALLED MY SURGEON WITH A CONCERN ON SATURDAY AND SAW HIM ON MONDAY. I STARTED HURTING ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY IT WAS WORSE. TODAY THEY PAIN IS A LITTLE WORSE. IT IS IN MY RIGHT BREAST AND FRIDAY I FELT A LUMP THERE THAT WAS FEELING KIND OF LARGE AND PAINFUL.
Avatar n tn The most likely cause of this problem may be fat necosis (a scar tissue nodule formed in reaction to death of fat) from the reduction surgery. Peau d'orange (orange peel skin) is a sign of inflammatory breast cancer which may not be picked up on mammography. You undoubtedly had a pathologic examination of the removed breast tissue from your reduction surgery. I would obtain a copy of this pathology report.
Avatar n tn Six months ago, I had an abscess in my breast (I AM NOT BREAST FEEDING), and it was aspirated after mammogram and US. Since that time, I feel strong pain and heaviness at that breast. I made lately another ultrasound and it showed a scar tissue after the abscess and a few thin-walled cysts up to 19 mm on both sides. I want just to know what can be there to cause that continuous pain, it is not the cysts because I have them in both breasts and the pain is only at the breast which was aspirated.
Avatar f tn I've talked to others that have had breast reduction and they have never had any pain like this. Any advice on what I should use? The plastic surgeon that did my surgery did not use drain tubes. Can this be blood clots or tumors? Thanks.
Avatar m tn I had a breast reduction in 2001. I had a noticeable amount of scar tissue on the underside of my left breast. It has been increasingly bothersome in the past 2 years. I had a hysterectomy a year ago & developed a case of Staph (Kept ovaries). I've been dealing with a sinus infection &been on antibiotics for seven weeks. 3 weeks ago, my left breast was REALLY bothering me. Took my bra off to find a large 'hot spot' that felt very 'fluidy' underneath.
Avatar n tn There are also some tiny red veins at one part near this blue vein. The right breast has no blue vein. I feel pain in my left breast sometimes its like a shooting pain that comes for a second or half minute and it goes. It happens around 4 times in a day. Is it a sign of inflammatory breast cancer? I want this vein to disappear and I want to get pain free. Second issue is the red scar tissue around the areola that does not fades in both breasts plus the red scar around the crease of the breast.
Avatar f tn However, it becoming more and more concerning. Could this pain simply be scar tissue and/or nerve pain? Could it be a mild mastitis? Or should I seek furhter assistance from my PCP?
Avatar f tn I had a breast reduction (about 8 lbs total) over a year ago and have several problems. I have burning and pain and lots of scar tissue in both breast and wondered if anyone has any suggestions? Some days are worse than others.
Avatar f tn Back in Feb I was approved by Empire BC/BS for a breast reduction due to severe back pain,spinal arthritis,and scoliosis.I'm only 21 years old & had 34E breasts and got reduced down to a 34D.Unfortunatly my left breast is a D and my right one is a C!!!My nipples are not the same size & my right one is hung down to the left too much due to the surgeon taking off too much skin & tissue out of the left side of the breast.The surgeon told me to let me heal & see if it gets better.

Avatar n tn I had a breast reduction in 2008. About a month ago I began having moderate pain in my right breast. One time had severe pain lasting around an hour with any movement or inhaling. Those were my only symptoms. Could this be scar tissue? What could I do to relieve the symptoms? What would my doctor do to treat?
Avatar n tn The chances are that it could be a post surgery scar tissue or fat necrosis. If this is a scar tissue it's usually managed conservatively and regular follow ups planned.Scar tissue, as well as cysts or fibroadenoma are lumps that can cause some pain and tenderness as you have described..It's always advisable though, when we find any kind of lump in the breasts,to have it checked out to make sure that nothing serious is going on. Best wishes...
Avatar f tn PLEASE everyone do not just think it's scar tissue and poo-poo everything. I am 47 years old and had my breast reduction Aug 09. I healed ok. My breasts have been so sore ever since, when it was time for my mammo in May of this year I cringed at the thought because my breasts are still so sensitive! Surely if I had one just a year ago and breast reduction 9 months prior I am fine. I found a lump in June. Thought nothing of it...
Avatar n tn I had a surgical breast biopsy last year because of suspicious tissue. Fortunately, all is well for now. But the incision on my breast is not healing well and is red and painful. It's been a whole year and I thought the pain would be gone by now and that the redness on the incision would have faded. Thanks for any suggestions you could give.
Avatar n tn Noncyclical breast pain does not seem to be linked to hormonal variations and is often localized to one area of the breast tissue. Noncyclical breast pain may or may not be the result of an injury to the breast. And given how you are associating it with the underwire bra, perhaps this may have occurred. Discuss your symptoms with your physician. Breast pain is evaluated based on the history of the pain you would give to the health care professional, as well as a physical examination.
Avatar f tn Hello, Pain in breasts after more than 1 year of breast abscess drainage may be due to infection of the scar tissue which was formed.Other cause may be premenopause.This is due to imbalance between estrogen and progesterone levels.Hormone replacement therapy has to be started in premenopause.
Avatar f tn the procedures appear to be the same so far. One thing you definitely want to use are the new scar reduction treatments... you Doctor should tell you what they are, use them faithfully and you will have less scarring. I know this because my niece and nephew were in a terrible accident that nearly killed them both. The surgery scars were terrible... faithful use of the scar treatments recommended (they are expensive, but worth it) left these two young people with surprisingly small scars...
Avatar f tn I will mention I do have lots of scar tissue from a breast reduction I had 10 years ago. I know no one can diagnose me but my doctor. But I was just wondering if you know or have any idea what this could be. I can also get a good grasp on this mass like I can grab it with my fingers and almost wrap my fingers around it in most spots. One more thing is that I can only feel it when I am sitting up and then only when I grab it between my fingers.
