The verdict? It was a disolvable stitch that my body had recognized as foreign and had walled off. Whether it was from my mastectomy which was done in January, 1998; or my lumpectomy done May 1994, we don't know. My doc says it worked to the surface and he could see the little black threads.
No problem...once it popped it drained and went away. I still have the little scab and the threads at the top of the skin...It seems that my body recognizes foreign materials and does what it is supposed to do. Too bad its track record with recognizing cancer cells and destroying them isn't so good.
Can you believe it? After all these years...will wonders never cease.
