I saw Cheryl again today, the breast friend I told you about. She was saying that her breast that had the cancer (almond size, the cancer, not the breast, lol) is very warm. She finished rads in Nov, and the Dr's act like they have no idea why it is warm. She said it is not red, but warmer than when she had rads. Since I did not have rads, did anyone here experience this?
She had a lumpectomy, rads, no nodes, estrogen receptive, and chose not to take tamoxifen.  Any comments?
Love youall! Gail

Very warm, pink???? could be some infection???? Other than that I have no idea. Suggest she take her temp and keep a record. If infection is setting in her temp should be up. Hugs MK

My skin was pink for sometime after my rads were completed and a little warm for quite sometime. It was warm..NOT hot. She might want to check with her onco and see what he/she thinks. Unfortunately, my rad onco really screwed up and my onco had to step in.
