Breast surgeries, such as mastectomy and breast augmentation, can produce chronic pain as a result of a nerve injury, pinched nerve, or scar tissue from the incision area. According to the American Cancer Society, post-mastectomy pain syndrome (PMPS) develops in about 20 – 30 percent of patients; however, recent medical studies show this chronic pain occurs in as high as 50 percent. Chronic pain may appear as nerve pain in the armpit, chest, upper back, or middle back following a mastectomy or other type of breast surgery. A damaged nerve can send false signals to the brain with the brain responding with a sign of pain. Pain may persist for years if the brain is not reprogrammed to send the correct signal. Pain may include the following:

  • Shooting pain
  • Weakness in shoulder and arm
  • Throbbing pain
  • Pain in breast, arm, or shoulder
  • Difficulty using the affected arm (unable to do hair or get dressed)
