I had a lumpectomy and sentinental biopsy two weeks ago.The incision in the breast is about four inches.The skin around the incision is purpleish brown and at either end of the incision it ozzes a small amount of blood of the same color.The surgens office said not to worry because this is old blook.I also showed it to my oncologist and he thinks it looks fine.Anyone have this problem?
