hot flashes with a lump in the breast
breeze21 posted:
Has anyone had a lump removed from their breast and had hot flashes?
Mary Jane Minkin, MD responded:
Dear Breeze21,
I would doubt that the lump itself was causing this problem; however, taking a lump out of a breast can be a very stressful situation, and certainly stressors can lead to hot flashes. Hope all is well with the lump, and that you are fine.
Good luck,
Mary Jane
