    Would like to know if others, 1 year past breast cancer, have had strange breast appearance or other side effects post treatment?

    I had my mammo last month, and it was negative..but symptoms remain. The dimply, orange peel like texture, and hardness or lumps on left breast

      Yes, I'm having the exact same thing. I'm a little over 1 year out from a lumpectomy, chemo & radiation and I do have dimpling and hardness in that breast. I think the hardness is from scar tissue & some fluid in there. Did you have a lumpectomy?

      Yes I do even while radiation treatments 12 more days left and chemo pills for 5 years.The doctor told me right at the beginning of the radiation that I would experience these changes of color, size ,shape ,plus.Did your oncologist eplain this to you before you started with treatments?

      Did you have orange peel texture before radition? This is classic sign of IBC, are you going to have masct?

      I had a mammo also and my IBC was not on the film. Get checked right away for inflammatory breast cancer as it is very aggressive.

      No orange peel but hard scar lumps of the scar tissue. My surgeon said that heavy massage will help and I since I have been doing that I have noticed a difference .
