Post mastectomy pain
I am assuming you had a mastectomy and no reconstruction? If that is correct, and you are experiencing pain and feeling a pocket, you may be experiencing a fluid collection, also known as a seroma. Impossible to make any diagnoses without a physical exam. Please see you breast surgeon for an evaluation. If you had breast reconstruction, please see your plastic surgeon. Best of luck
