6 months post op- Lump
« on: June 14, 2011, 11:35:56 PM »
Ok, so the other day I was feeling around my chest and noticed the was a small, firm, and slightly painful lump right above my left nipple. My left side had more gland removal than the right. What is this? Like I said it is firm. Could it be gland or is gland usually right under the center of the nipple? It doesn't hurt until it is felt on or pressed (I know stop touching it). I just want to make sure this is normal. As of late I have been lifting weights 5 days a week. Doing a lot of chest.

So, is this just another phase of the healing process? The lump I would describe as equal to a marble cut in half. More of a dome if you will.

There is no way to know exactly what it is -- perhaps scar tissue, perhaps some as yet unremoved tissue that was masked by post op swelling.

Whatever it is, why obsess over it?  If you look good, if the results are even, that is what counts.  No one goes around feeling your chest to check for irregularities.  For sure, gyne surgery is done to make you look better and more trim, fit better in your clothing and to improve your self image and self esteem.

If your surgery has accomplished all of that -- then it has been a success.
