I am just 6 months  post my radiation. I had a lumpectomy then radiation.  Before my treatment I had a mammogram and theyfound 2 more spots and are "watching" them.
 
This past week, I am having breast pain in that breast.  I am worried, should I be?????

You are having pain in the radiated breast? I still have occasional pain in my radiated breast -- more focused in the underlying muscle (and it's been more than 12 years since diagnosis and treatment). My doctors have told me it was undoubtedly radiation damage to the muscle. Could be your situation, but I would suggest you contact your doctor to be sure nothing else is going on. Lauri

Saw my oncologist yesterday and he called  the surgeon. My breast is definately swollen and shaped completely different.  He says he doesn't think there is a "malignacy" there and is concerned there is some kind of inflammation or a blocked duct.  So.. off to the surgeon on  Tuesday and he said he will need to do an ultrasound to detemone what is going on.  Anyone else know anything about this
