I had a radiation treatment for breast cancer 22 years ago. Now I have a hard scar tissue lump, with 1" x 4" dark red line above the lump. Can scar tissue be removed and lighten the reddened area of the skin? Or, is there another procedure to eliminate this unsightly lump/scar? Thanks!

A scar related to radiation injury after a breast cancer procedure may be able to be revised. It is difficult to tell you specifically what can be done without examining you and at least seeing photos.
