ive just completed 6 courses of FEC-T chemo for triple negative breast cancer. I’ve just had surgery this week to remove all nodes and lump in breast. I’ve developed multiple cysts in my eyelids over the last two weeks. I’m due to see an eye specialist in August. Has anyone developed cysts after chemo?

i finished chemo in may and funnily enough I keep developing what I thought were styes, very painful lumps around my eyelids, they last around a week then more pop up, I use heated eye masks...xx

Hi Marlyn, thanks for the reply. I’ve been applying warm compresses but more keep appearing. Thankfully there is no pain from mine.

Odd isn't it? I just assumed they were because I was very run down, my eyes also get very sore and dry, they certainly haven't been the same since a lot of things! Lol....

You’re right about that lol. I suffered from dry eyes before I was diagnosed so thought it was initially down to that but what I thought were styes turned out to be cysts when I went to the eye infirmary. Every day is a learning curve after chemo
