Sore nipples and lump in right breast

Hi all,

I am not sure if this is related to my hysterectomy but I thought I would ask if anyone has had the same issues. For the last week or so my nipples have been really, really sore. This morning when I was showering I found a lump at the top of my right breast. I have read that sore nipples post op can be contributed to hormone levels getting out of whack. Has anyone else experienced this type of issue. I am not sure what to do about it.

Re: Sore nipples and lump in right breast

I would call the doctor and have your hormone levels checked. I know that the breast are very sensitive to hormone levels. Are you on any estrogen? Do you still have your ovaries?

Strangely enough, I had mastitis right before my surgery. I had a lump that was just inflammed breast tissue. I was unaware that we could have mastitis when not breastfeeding, but it does happen.

Call the doc for some reassurance. Let us know what you find out! Hugs!

Yes, I still have my ovaries so I did not think that hormones was supposed to be an issue since they did not take them out. I am confused as to why this is going on. I made an appointment for tomorrow. Should I see my PCP or my Gyn doctor though?

See your GYN....It is normal for your ovaries to slow down in the hormone department after you have your uterus removed. Lack of blood flow will start to affect the ovaries. Good luck honey!

How long has it been since you had your hyster? I had mine 4 months ago and have really sore nipples also. Went to GYN and she didnt seem very concerned
