Brief Answer:
It definitely needs evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
Yes dear you need to visit your doctor as breast cancer needs proper evaluation of slightest symptoms even after mastectomy.
You should also have a PET scan done to see the nature of the nodes but first consult your doctor and then proceed in a meticulous manner.
All the best
