Hi. I have gone thrum lumpectomy and lymph node removal as well but I have never heard of "tumour markers". Once I completed chemo and radiation, my oncologists told me I didn't need to see them anymore and just to see my regular dr. I have a mammogram scheduled in September but reading all this stuff I'm starting to worry that I should still be seeing the oncologists. What do you think? Plus it's been about 10 months since my surgery and just in the last week or so my breast has been really sore especially when I wake up in the morning. It's quite warm to the touch and a bit hard. Should I be scared?

My advice to you would be to see your breast surgeon or gynecologist. It could be radiation effect whereupon the breast tissue hardens and can be uncomfortable and your massaging may help. HOWEVER, since it is warm, you should have it be seen.
