I've recently had a lumpectomy. Is it normal to still feel a lump in the area afterwards?

      That happened to me as well! My doctor said it was normal and just part of the healing process. But definitely mention it to your doctor just to be safe.

      How long ago was your lumpectomy? And yes, it’s perfectly normal. There is a scar tissue there and might still be an inflammatory process if you’re not too far away from your surgery

      I experienced something similar, but it gradually improved. It's always best to check with your doctor for peace of mind.

      It's quite common to have some lumpiness as you heal.
