    dog ears

    I have a huge lump under my arm and it hurts. The left side hasn't went down but the right side did go down. Is this something I should be concerned about?

      If the lump is a dog ear post mastectomy, it should improve with time, but may need tidying up surgically in due course (they advise waiting at least a year before doing this). If the lump isn’t just excess tissue post surgery, definitely have your doc take a look!
