I have a lump just below the hairline on the left back side of my neck. I was diagnosed with invasive dutal carsanoma breast cancer last August and had lump removed and radiation. Should I be concerned about this new lump on my neck?

Get yout oncologist to look at this as soon as possible! It maybe nothing, but also could be an enlarged lymph node...I, too, was diagnosed with IDC in 2009....lumpectomy, chemo radiation.....was fine until June,2011...I discovered a "lump "right above my clavicle...my cancer is back...in my lymph nodes...undergoing treatment again....this maybe nothing but get it checked as soon as possible....better safe than sorry...

Wishing you the best...keep us posted, please....we care
Hugs, Nancy

Since the lump went away on its own should I cancel the appointment.

No! In my opinion, I think you should still go and talk this over with your doctor.

Hugs, Debby

you have had bc no. You should still have it checked. It would be a whole different ball game if you had not had bc or another cancer. Go to the doctor. Go directly to the doctor. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. (adapted from Monopoly).

I agree with the other pink sisters and ask that you still have this checked out. We're concerned for you.

Hugs, Noel
