is there such a thing? I had surgery when I was 10 y/o, I am now 40, my scar under my left breast is spasming so bad that you can actually see my breast tighten and losen then tighten again. It sometimes hurts but is more annoying than anything, it happens all day all nite, been going on for like 3 weeks now. My doc told me there is nothing they can do about it, but I dont know what to do....Its so bothersome. Anyone have any ideas? The spasms are almost like contractions or a baby kicking you really hard inside where you can actually see your belly rise and fall. My boyfriend felt it last nite and got kinda grossed out! :cry: I been having to deal with it all these weeks. Any advice?

I know this post is 11 years old but I googled twitching scar tissue and found it. I have a very similar issue and had to reply. I had multiple surgeries when I was 5 so its been 33 years and the scar on my chin has started twitching.. Its so annoying and people can see it.. Ugh. No clue why now after all these years that it started. Did you ever find any answers? Did yours eventually stop?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. The stretching around scar tissue is normal process if the scar is new and is a part of healing process. But once a scar is made, regeneration is complete and no further sensation like it is normal. And not due to a scar.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
