It has been 15 months since I had a right lung lobectomy. Occasionally I get a swelling under my arm in the area of the incision. It feels like I have a football under my arm. There is no pain involved. I am just curious if anyone else has had this problem.

Welcome.  I'm not a doctor but I believe Barb Jackson's advice is good.  See your surgeon as soon as possible. Swelling for a week to 10 days is expected but not after.  Something else is going on and it should be promptly checked.


Stay the course.
