Scar tissue pain breast surgery

Common Questions and Answers about Scar tissue pain breast surgery


Avatar f tn Hi lizzy, Most of the time scar tissue forms soon after surgery, but that's not to say that what you have couldn't be scar tissue.I think the MRI is a good idea because no matter how confident the doctors are, a painful mass after 2 years needs a diagnosis.Hopefully, the MRI will most probably clarify this for you but if the result doesn't fully satisfy you,I would opt for a core needle biopsy,since only this procedure can tell for sure if there is any problem.
Avatar n tn 1) does deep lumpectomy scar tissue often tend to feel like the tumor that was removed (round, hard) and 2)how long after all the surgery and treatment does such scar tissue usually continue to grow? Thanks so much for your answers!
Avatar f tn Could this be from a build up of scar tissue from my surgery? 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.
Avatar n tn It is quite possible that this is scar tissue. However, if you are having this much pain, it would make good sense to get to the bottom of what is causing this. If your doctor is unable to locate the problem, consider a second opinion from a breast specialist.
Avatar n tn This pain is almost constant and goes up into my shoulder and arm. I will be having surgery on January 8th. Can this pain be connected to the lump or scar tissue in my breast? And am I making a big deal over this? The doctor said we could watch this lump and come back in 3 months. My husband asked the doctor if we wait 3 months could it develop into something, the doctor said yes.
Avatar n tn Several band-aids later and I was home. Now the problem is with the breast that had the surgery in April. Where the scar is has become quite sore. This happened after her exam, by the way. The scar changed color to slightly pinkish in a small area but not the entire scar. It is sorish all the time but sometimes pretty sore, if that make sense. Certain movements are uncomfortable also. I am putting vitamin e oil on the scar and have been for quite sometime.
Avatar n tn hi I was wondering if any can help me find relief for severe pain from scar tissue. 6 years ago i had surgery to remove fnh tumors from the liver. I have a scar from the breast bone down on right and left side about 10" long. There are 4 areas that are givibg me a lot of pain. I have tried every pain killer drug that there is but none have helped. I had injections done but that made it much worse. Thanks for any help you can give me.
Avatar n tn Nothing can be said with surety but this could be pain due to scar tissue formation. Do you notice any abnormal feature like breast lump, skin changes or nipple discharge on breast self examination? What is your age? It would be best to consult your doctor for a clinical examination. Till then you could try some warm compresses, local analgesic creams and oral pain relief medications. Let us know how you are doing and if you have any other doubts. Regards.
Avatar n tn I was looking for information on pain and scar tissue formation after an excisional biopsy eight months ago. I'm 29 and had a "fibroadenoma with focal non-atypical ductal epithelial hyperplasia and apocrine metaplasia" removed from the right breast. I've been experiencing intermittent sharp and burning pain in the same breast; comes and goes through the entire month (for 3 or 4 months now)...with a distinct thickening deep in my breast.
Avatar n tn I suffer pain along the scar line of my right breast and i have a hard lump in one of the scars. My gp thought it was a neuroma, but my breast surgeon says it is not, it is just dead fat. The pain is particularly bad leading up to' and during my period. I had my breast reduction in june 2007. I also have bad large scars in my cleavage area.
Avatar n tn Can the scar tissue from the breast cancer cause this problem? If so what can you do for it? I'm a Veteran and am in the process of getting a CT ordered. The chest x-rays and the test with the scope down my throat, was clear. Thank you.
Avatar n tn When she showers the water running over it causes pain and even a gentle brush or caress hurts. If this is indeed scar tissue pain, what can be done about it? Our doctors are at a loss, where do we go to find out an answer?
Avatar f tn I told my surgeon that it felt like more scar tissue. He did surgery and lo and behold. The scar ran from my galbladder to my stomach causing my stomach to fold over and twist. So if all else fails....insist that your doctor consider that it just may be scar tissue. I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn i too have had a lump (directly on my incision) show up five years after the fact (surgery). my doctor says "scar tissue." i said how does scar tissue show up five years later? they did a fnb -- missed the spot. ignored me telling them this. you said a cyst will bring out fluid. what will scar tissue produce when using fnb? thank you so much.
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 Hi there, I have only limited information but have learned about axillary ectopic breast tissue, which I think is different than accessory breast. Mine was glandular tissue, not fat, so liposuction was not an option. Due to our hormones these things can continue to grow, I hear when you get pregnant they get huge and can come back even if you've had surgery. I had mine growing for 8 years (noticed it when I was 24) and was told similar things "Oh you don't want that big scar...
Avatar f tn I have those come up around my surgery scars and around a scar from where I had a ringworm infection a few years ago. They do only last a short time, and they itch like crazy. I too have mentioned this too my doctor and she couldn't come up with anything. The only thing she could think is that maybe it's the body's way of responding to the scar tissue. (?
Avatar f tn I am undergoing surgery for the removal of axillary breast tissue under my right arm. The surgery is scheduled for 20 Aug 07. I was briefed throughly that the casuses could be hereditary, due to lactating, etc. I noticed mine shortly after nursing my youngest child (23 months) and it has been bothersome ever since. I have gone to the doctor so many times and they always tell me maybe it is my lympnodes or cancer.. I had a breast ultrasound done and there is no trace of cancer.
Avatar f tn possibly related in some way to the surgery. Nerve pain, scar tissue ??? You might ck. with your Surgeon if this continues or becomes more severe. Regards ....
Avatar f tn It seems you have done everything possible to rid yourself of this chronic pain. Scar tissue can certainly become a problem after many types of surgery. I believe after suffering for the length of time as in your case I would do most anything to correct the problem. If you aren't completely comfortable with this recommendation you might seek a second opinion. This surgery shouldn't be terribly complicated and might just cure the problem. Regards ....
Avatar n tn I am still in tremendous pain and was wondering if I could have scar tissue that has built up under my arm from the lymph node surgery that could be tangled up with a nerve or muscle causing this pain. Today, my arm almost feels numb like the blood flow is being restricted. Can an X-Ray or MRI show scar tissue?
Avatar f tn I have always had a niggling pain where the scar tissue is , now the pain is intense and goes in my arm. I had a mammogram in 2006 , they said scar tissue . I went to the Dr last night who has referred me to a breast clinic. I just wonder if they will do a mammogram again, with the pain I have.. Or a scan. Could it be scar tissue ? The pain starts in the Scar in the morning, then spreads! ohh Lots of questions .. any ideas? thanks Rachel.
Avatar n tn Just over a year ago I had a major infection in my left breast and had to have surgery. For the las couple of months I have been having sharp pains next to the scar tissue. Is this a common problem with scar tissue or do i need to get it checked out.
Avatar n tn It was found that it was a tail of breast tissue. I did find this quite upsetting, particularly when told that surgery was not an option. The reasoning for this was not explained and so I was upset further. I find that lump can be painful if I lay on that side and it can be uncomfortale at times. I find that it hurts during excercise and I am quite an active person. So it is fair to say that it is getting in the way of my usual routine.
Avatar n tn Of course I'm sure that doesn't mean pain could never be on the right though. Could you possibly be having pain from adhesions or scar tissue caused by your surgery? That's a possibility... I'd check with your doctor just to be safe!! Hope you feel better soon!
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 The surgeon also biopsied 2 lymph nodes which were negative. My breast has been more firm since surgery and I was told it would soffen up in time. My question is up until yesterday I have had no pain. Now I have pain in the area where the lymph node biopsy was done. I thought it seemed strange I am all of a sudden experiencing pain upon movement of my left arm. Is this normal? Also, I am doing chemo and having been experiencing eye twitching.
