Any treatment for breast swelling after cancer treatment?


Posted by BCin08

Stage II, Her2-Nu, lumpectomy Jan 2008, removed 14 lymph nodes - sentinel node dye didn't work, no cancer in lymph nodes.  Had chemo, Herceptin, radiation.  Completed all but Herceptin in Oct 2008.  1st Mamogram after radiation in Dec 2008 started swelling in the breast.  It sometimes is worse than others but never completely goes down.  When worst it has hard lumps in it and hurts.  Surgeon and radiologist keep saying it's a side affect of the radiation and may go away.  Some minor lymphedema in the arm since surgery.
