Just a query, concern - after diagnosis by mammogram because the lump was deep and central, I had no visible symptoms such as dimpling, orange peel skin appearance. However after lumpectomy and radiotherapy ending 11th May, I now have the orange peel skin, numbness in places, which I was told to expect together with all the other things. My breast is still swollen and is painful at times but expected.. The thing that worries me most is the skins effect - was under the impression that this was a indication of Ca not a post op feature. Any other "lumpectomies" out there have the same. Did mention it to the locum oncologist as mine was poorly and she said it was ok......... But ladies as experience is vast -what do you say!!
