    Scar tissue? Hematoma? Those are my guesses but you need to be asking your surgeon about it.

    Hi Sandi, it may be cording, I had that after my lumpectomy. Here is the definition..... Cording. Axillary Web Syndrome is also known as “cording”. It is very common after mastectomy or lumpectomy with axillary node dissection (lymph node removal). It may be cording, I had that after mine. It ran down my side from the incision area.
