    2 years after treatment ended, I am having some problems that no one seems to have experienced. My breast starts getting "prickly feeling", then gets red, swollen and sore. This lasts for 2 or 3 days, then goes away. It has happened 3 times since April. I was examined by my oncologist. He said he has never seen that happen, also the radiaologist, and the radiaologist oncologist. However, it happens on the weekend and is cleared up on Monday so no one can see it. It presents like inflammatory breast cancer or mastitis, but they don't go away without treatment. If it happens again, I will take a picture. Any comments?

      Hi Annie, I noticed you posted this and clicked the "update" button. If you post this as a question, at the top of the text box where you typed this in, there is a link that says "ask network" click that and it will go to the questions page and everyone will see it there.

      Thanks for being here, there are a ton of BC survivors, and patients here, post that as a question and you'll get answers.

      Let us know if we can help with anything!
