I had a benign breast tumor removed, is it possible for the tumor to have returned?

Hi,
I am a 26 year old female and In December 2015, I had a lump removed from my breast. It was benign breast tumor but it was removed as it was quite large. I noticed the lump was there as I was getting a pain where it was, especially when I had my period. Over the last 6 months or so the pain has returned in my breast and it is a little worse than what it was before. I’m not sure if I can feel a lump as it feels different with the scar and has always been a bit tender since the surgery. Is it possible that the lump has returned and do I need to go and see my GP?

Hi,
Although i dont think it is a recurrent injury and it could be due to adhesions beneath the scar, i recommend checking it up with your doctor and get tested even with u/s .

Hi..
The chances of recurrence are less..
However a Physical examination and a mammogram if needed can be done for confirmation..

Hi
If it was benign there should be no recurrence, it can be fibrous tissue formation from surgery, still you should see your doctor as soon as possible.
Good Luck
