Breast Cancer/Burning sensation in breast and armpit


I had a bilateral mastectomy with tram flap reconstruction and axillary node resection 13 years ago.  I did not require chemo or radiation.  I am now 69 years old.  All of a sudden I have a burning sensation in my right breast extending into my underarm area.  Do you know what might be causing this or have recommendations as to what action I should take?  I appreciate any insights you may have.

No that is not possible to decide without examinations. So I do suggest that you let your doctor check you soonest! Good luck!
