Customer Question

I recently has a small lump in my breast, to be honest it wasnt really a lump more like a little tiny knot of tissue and it was inbetween two lobules. I had this removed as the biopsy was inconclusive. It was sent away to pathology and came back as Non Specific Inflammation & Fibrosis. It is now 7 weeks later and to my suprise when I had a feel under the scar I can still feel the small bobble?! Is this normal, it doesnt feel as large and is not as easily felt but still there

Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

you most likely are feeling scar tissue there.

Dr. David :

you are most likely feeling scar tissue or another small bit of breast fat or a fat lobule

Customer:

It is tender when pressing on it, does this indicate scar tissue?

Dr. David :

or you could be feeling part of the seroma

Dr. David :

tender can be because you have had surgery in the area.

Dr. David :

even 7 weeks post surgery you can have some tenderness.

Dr. David :

small nerves are cut in the breast when you have breast surgery.

Customer:

Does this warrant a visit to get it checked or should I leave it for a time? If so how long? Does scar tissue stay forever?

Dr. David :

you should leave it there.

Dr. David :

scar tissue does stay forever.

Dr. David :

you can massage the scar tissue there to help soften it.

Dr. David :

it sounds like you have a lot of anxiety over this area.

Customer:

ok thanks was just surprised to still feel something there!
