Had a tissue expander fill today and, when I got home, I noticed an indent on the outer lower area of right breast. (about as round as a pencil eraser) What could this be and should I be worried?

      Thank you Zandra:) its always so encouraging to hear stories like yours I received my PET scan results today and the mastectomy got all the cancer ( I had multiple tumors) and there is no metastasis! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders! 8 months of chemo starting next week and then hopefully I can put this all behind me of course I'll always have to worry about a new cancer but just knowing that I'm gonna get to see my babies grow up is all I need!

    Is this your first fill? If so the bag may be indented or creased until it gets fuller. If it isn't red or puffy no need for alarm. Always call your plastic surgeon with questions as they arise. This is very important. The best of luck to you.

      That is awesum news Jessica. I actually told my oncologist about this site so she can pass it to other patients. We all need support but talking to someone that is going through or has gone through the same thing as you is priceless. Trying to help by answering questions is my small way of giving back. Best of luck to you.
