Brief Answer:
Possibly relate to putty -complications?Need MRI

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mam.

I understand your concern.

The 2 spots at the areola could be related possibly to the complication of putty .

The spots can be either a necrotic tissue or unresolved small haematoma.

An MRI scan of the involved breast is extremely important to rule out recurrence of cancer and assessing the risk of rupture of the putty.

Post your further queries if any.

Thank you.
