Lump on my breast

Posted 27 Dec 2021 at 11:36

I was diagnosed with local advanced prostate cancer in May 2019. I have had 20 radio therapy treatments and two years hormone therapy. I am now relatively free from the side effects of the hormone therapy. Over the last month or so, I have developed a lump on my left breast under the nipple. It is quite painful to touch. I am a wee bit worried in case of breast cancer.  Any comments or advice would be welcome.

Are you still on hormone therapy? It is most likely that this is the start of you developing breast tissue but unusual for it to happen 2 years after you began the hormones so best to get it checked out.

I developed a small lump at the side of my nipple a few years ago, i got it checked out at our local breast clinic. It turned out to be a lipoma, which I believe is fatty tissue. I have had several PCa related scans since the discovery of the breast lump and nothing has been picked up. 

 As already advised get it checked out so it can be hopefully dismissed and nothing to worry about.

Thanks Chris
