I am new to this site, many thanks for accepting me.
I had a mastectomy 23 years ago, at the age of 39, I had 15 lymph nodes removed and several were positive. I had chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
About fifteen years ago I had an silicone/saline permanent expander implant inserted, the surgeon said it would give me a cleavage.
Earlier this year I started to get eczema, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism seven years ago and Doctor said the eczema could be associated with been hypo.
This week I notice what I thought was the eczema on my mastectomy scar. On closer examination I feel it is not eczema as it is not a rash as such, just a redness of the skin on the scar. Today I can now feel a small hard lump (smaller than a pea) on top of the implant, under my skin, about an inch above the scar but to the right of the redness.
I am worrying myself sick and have made an appointment to see my Doctor tomorrow.
Could it be a reoccurance after all these years?
