    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    The one who discovered the lump was very supportive. I was sent to one hospital(outpatient) and had a very supportive liaison who explained all the possible treatments. We got all the way up to choosing the surgeon and had to go to another hospital because the one I was at did not accept assignment. This was a blessing in disguise because the Dr. I was sent to was the only certified breast surgeon in the area.

    Allergic reaction

    Side Effects

    Allergic to tape. Sometimes still break out in hives on affected breast when eating strawberries. Use of Trimaclnolone Acetonide Cream helps when rash occurs.
