Breast Cancer

How soon after breast cancer surgery will my stitches be removed?

A Answers (1)

  • Some stitches are invisible and will dissolve over time. Others will be removed when you see your surgeon at the one-week-post-operative visit. If steri-strips have been placed over the incision do not remove them. They will fall off by themselves, usually when you shower.
