Hello, I had a mass removed approx. 10 weeks ago. It was non-malignant, thank God. But.............. my nipple burns all the time, like its on fire! The incision was made just below the areola. Has this happened to anyone else?

Kentucky,
 
I wish I knew what to tell you, that must be awful!!!!
 
I had a lumpectomy on 11/15 and have been having some burning under my arm when I lift it just so so, its really uncomfy so cant imagine having it around the nipple area....
I posted on another web site about the burning and most of them said it is probably the nerves reconnecting , rewiring themselves and that it will go away after awhile....I have been using a heating pad and that seems to have helped (not sure if it will in your case, but might be worth a try)..Have you spoke to your Dr. about this yet?
 
Also want to say how happy I am to hear that your mass was malignant, so many of us here hoped to hear that word but heard others :(
 
Keep me posted and hope I was helpful in some small way...
Take Care
Jule

I don't know if this is relevant, but when I had my lift/reduction on the good side, the incision was made completely around the areola so it could be relocated after the reduction.  For several weeks, the nipple was so sensation and itchy, I thought I would go crazy.  I was expecting to have loss of sensation, but it was exactly the opposite.  It got better in time.  10 weeks seems like quite a while, though, so I would ask your doctor.
L & H,
Kathy

It may be nerves that were severed in the surgery. But, you should call you doctor and ask your questions. Lauri
