A Year After Breast Reduction an Area Below Rib Red and Warm-cancer Scare? (photo)
I had successful breast reduction in 2011. Now an area below the right breast has remained red and warm for several weeks. I looked at the scar below the right breast and noticed that it is red with a red vein running the length. As I moved out of state my surgeon is not in my area. I saw a doctor who did not looked at the breast scars and is sending me for mammogram with cancer scare.
Scars can be biologically active years after breast reduction but should be evaluated by the plastic surgeon.
Redness/Swelling Most likely NOT Cancer.
