Sharp pain in upper breast post lumpectomy and raditation: Anyone?
Did chemo, lumpectomy in August 2022 and finished radiation in November 2022. For the past 2-3 weeks having sharp pain on the upper part of the breast, not in surgery area, it was constant at first but past weeks is off and on and sharp and area very tender. Surgical oncologist did a complete follow-up exam and all checked out fine. I mentioned this tender and painful area and she said it was from radiation. I called radiation oncologist, talked to his nurse, her message from him was if it was very painful it was not from radiation, but he would be happy to see me if I wanted. I see him in a couple of days. Anyone experience anything similar? Someone said could be fibrosis, has anyone experienced fibrosis?
