    Carla, It is scar tissue and will flatten out in a few months. Take care, Sharon

    I have the same problem. I had first surgery in feb and second one in march. The onc says it is scar tissue and I just had a mammo last week and the radiologist said it is scar tissue too. It is very tender and I hate feeling it in there. I wouldn't even know if I had a cancerous lump with all that in there.

    Mine is similar 7 weeks post as well. I spoke to my surgeon in last visit and he gave me the impression it's normal. Give them a call
