Cording / Axillary Web Syndrome (AWS)
Does anyone have experience with Cording, also called Axillary Web Syndrome (AWS)
I recently found a rope like structures under the skin in my armpit. I asked my radiation oncologist about and he explained it was called Cording and is scar tissue. I had a lumpectomy and few lymph nodes removed 6 months ago and I did not notice any cording. I am on my 3rd week of radiation and cording is now apparent.
Here is an article on cording:
The dr did give me some stretching exercises.
I am interested in hearing from others who have had cording and if you had any treatment for.
