Dead  Following my sixteeth radiation treatment, I developed a seroma in the treated breast.  The pain was horrendous!  My Radiologist was concerned that I'd developed an infection and--after many attempts--was finally able to contact my Surgeon.  He even walked over to her office (which was in another building).  She finally responded and I was sent to her office.  An ultrasound was taken, she (the surgeon) cleared out the room and proceeded to squeeze my breast (after inserting a needle).  The pain was excruciating and the breast--although less painful--is not free of pain to this day!  Yesterday and today are the first days that I'm up and about.  I went online today and the report states that I had a US Breast Complete Right procedure.  A seroma is seen in the right breast at 7 o'clock 11 cm from nipple.  What is a seroma?  Was it caused by the radiation procedure?  Should I continue radiation once the breast has completely healed?
