      I had a lumpectomy and radiation and did not have this. I would check with the doctor - for peace of mind if nothing else. As others said, it might just be scar tissue, etc.

      Any time you notice any change, run to the Dr. Then let them decide what is causing the change.
      I am always in that small percentage of strange things that happen. Had a squamous cell carcinoma in my scar, caused by radiation. Very rare for this to happen, but get checked.

      I had lumpectomy & radiation, and developed a very large seroma in the tumor cavity. It didn't hurt or slosh, but I did have to go up a cup size. Took over a year, but it has fully resorbed and there's a modest dent instead. Never popped or drained, just shrank as the body absorbed the fluid. (My sentinel node seroma in my armpit did burst and drain early, but was sutured closed and healed completely within a couple of months).

      Ask your surgeon anyway--but you'll probably be reassured. It's quite normal.

    I am so sorry to hear this. I am 69 and worry cancer will return. Keeping you in my thoughts.

    I hope you do find another competent onchologist to care for you. Communication between doctor and patient is very important. So is support. I stayed with my doctor too long before my diagnosis, to my everlasting regret. Thankfully I did find a doctor I could both talk to and had the experience and expertise I needed. Wishing you better days ahead.
