    Stinging Sensation On Nipple Of Right Breast

    November 29, 2008

    Hi, In Feb 2008, I had non invasive cancer. They did the surgery;  it was .4 centimeters, Ductal Carcinoma. I had 32 radiation treatments,

    but no Chemo.

    I feel good, exercise regularly, but lately I've been bothered by a stinging sensation across the nipple area. This has probably been going on for a couple of months but seems to be happening more often.

    It's really worrying me;  Could this be nerves? Do I need to make an appointment with my cancer Dr? My breast doesn't look any different,

    nor do I have lumps. Naturally, I'm concerned with possible recurrence.

    Please advise. Sincerely, Wilma Robinson

    Hi Wilma,

    I, too, was diagnosed with invasice ductal carcinoma in March of 2008.  I underwent lumpectomy.  I had a low scoring oncotype but opted for four courses of chemo and then the acellerated partial breast radiatioin.  About six weeks after radiation I had a period of about a week of severe nipple pain. I became very worried.  I was told that this was probably just post radiation changes and it did eventually clear up and now I am feeling just fine.  I hope this is all that it is with you too.  Please get it check out by your doctor.
