I'm not sure if I have lymphedema or not. I don't have swelling in my arm, but ever since my surgery (bil mast 7/12) I've had swelling in my left breast area. There is no infection. It's also hard. My oncologist said it could be lymphedema. Has anyone else had this and what did you do about it?

Go and get an assessment from a specialist. At the very least, if it isn't LE you'll learn some techniques to keep from getting it.

The breast I had surgery on swells around the nipple area and gets hard when I don't wear my bra and let the boob just hang around as it pleases. I found that when I put my bra on it goes away. I do have LE in my arm as well.
