Oncology Questions? Ask an Oncologist for Answers ASAP
This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you are having this pain after lumpectomy surgery
did you have 4 out of 21 lymph nodes involved with cancer?
if that is the case, you need additional chemotherapy and radiation therapy after your breast surgery, even if the scans don't show cancer.
have you tried ice packs wrapped in towels on your breast and incision area to help decrease pain?
you may benefit from anti-anxiety medications.
did your doctors give you pain medications to take after your surgery?
ultrasound would be less painful than mammogram
breast MRI scan would not be painful at all and is an option, but more expensive, and NHS may not pay for a breast MRI scan.
yes, that is ok to to have ultrasound
it is not the best
when your breast becomes less painful, you can have a mammogram.
let me know if you have other questions.
