The Breast Becomes Hard After Breast Tumor Surgery?
Hello, I’m 17 years old. I finished surgery on the left benign breast tumor. Tumor size 1cm. I was operating from February. Now after this operation, I felt that my breasts were hard to touch, then during my third control with my surgeon. He said that was indeed what he wanted to eliminate. And I have to control for 6 months. Is it really like that for post-operative benign tumors? I am afraid that this is a hard problem that is severe eating should be seen for 6 months. Please answer …
Thank you for asking at aldokter.
Lumps in the breast do not necessarily indicate a malignancy. The lump can be a benign tumor. Some types of benign tumors in the breast include:
Fibrocystic, and others
Some types of breast tumors are treated by surgery / surgery. After surgery scar surgery will certainly experience an inflammatory process. Usually this inflammation will make the breast feel hard. For this reason, control is needed to observe this complaint. We recommend that you exercise control according to the instructions of the surgeon in charge of you, if complaints occur during the healing period you should ask your doctor directly.
For now, all you can do is:
Consumption of healthy and nutritious foods, especially protein to accelerate wound healing
Drink enough and rest
Do not use clothes that are too tight
Keep the wound area clean
If inflammation feels pain, you can help relieve it by compressing warm water
So, hopefully useful.
