Strange Feeling In Chest And Lightheaded
A MyBCTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hello all, I'm a year out from treatment. Had a single mastectomy with no expander or reconstruction. I've been getting this feeling off an on for a few months now where it sort of feels like an air bubble in my chest, not painful, just weird, and it radiates out and up and makes me a little lightheaded for a few seconds.

Starting to think it might be chemo/radiation treatment related since I never had this feeling before cancer.

Anyone have this happen to them? I'm starting to get a little… read more

I Have Developed What Feels Like A Little Air Bubble In My Reconstructed Breast With A Red Line In The Middle.
A MyBCTeam Member asked a question 💭

It looks like a circular air pocket with an indented red line through it. No pain, just odd. My surgery was September 30th and this just developed around Christmas. Has anybody else had something similar. Can't get in to my doctor until Feb. 7th. When I press on it, it feels like there is just air and it pushes in easily and then when you let go pops back out...

Yes, I've had the same thing on the bottom of one side. Was told it's nothing to worry about. More annoying than anything else!

Are "Bubbles" In The Expander Normal?
A MyBCTeam Member asked a question 💭

I already had my second fill and I am at 260 ccs in my expander. I feel pretty good but I just noticed an area on the side of my breast that looks like a bubble is underneath my skin. It is about a half inch in diameter. When I gently press on it, it gives in easily and does not hurt. Should I worry or notify my PS? Also, how would I know if my expander is leaking?

A MyBCTeam Member

Let your surgeon know. But it's probably just shifting. My best to you.

I'm glad to hear you are happy with your reconstruction. I had a unilateral mastectomy so my reconstructed side is much flatter than my non-affected side (the reason why I asked about an anatomically… read more
