"Knots" common after breast reduction
If I understand you correctly, you had a breast reduction 3 months ago and now feel a "knot" in the right breast. It is common, almost expected, that you will have some areas that are firm for many months after breast reduction. I assume that by "tracker" you mean that you had an area of concern that was marked with a metal clip during a previous biopsy or other evaluation. Your surgeon would not have known that without you telling him/her. It is possible that this "tracker" was removed during your reduction.
Since you have extra concerns because of your family history and personal history, share this with your surgeon. But I would not be concerned about waiting until your appointment a month from now. If it is really nagging you, ask that your surgeon call you personally or make an earlier appointment for an evaluation.
