Recurrent hematoma after a lumpectomy

You need to contact your breast surgeon ASAP regarding your recurrent hematoma. They will need to treat this expeditiously and a drain should be placed following the procedure (though it won't necessarily prevent this or a seroma 100% fo the time).

Recurrent Hematoma After Lumpectomy

It seems that you have recurrent hematoma.  With a small size hematoma, your body may be able to reabsorb it.  However, with a large hematoma that is expanding or giving you discomfort, you need to have it re-evacuated soon.  Please see your breast surgeon.

Two recurrent breast hematomas

It may not necessarily mean that it has recurred and may be more indicative of a seroma. Alternatively, if you have a repeated tendency for hemoma, you may want to consider a hematologic evaulation.

Hematoma and breast lumpectomy

A hematoma can occur with any surgery.  If you have had it drianed once, but it has come back, I suggest you contact your surgeon to be evaluated for possible re-drainage.

Hematoma after breast surgery

Hematoma can and do occur after breast surgery; unfortunately, they can reoccur after drainage. The safest thing for you is to see the surgeon who performed your surgery as soon as possible.
