Question:

I recently had a routine mamogram per my request, as I underwent breast augmentation a yr ago. My mamogram showed a r/breast nodule 4mi, my doctor recomended a f/u ultrasoud to compare. Should I be concerned?? I feel great..I have felt a little something there, but I thought I my be scar tissue or the actual implant!!!

Answer:

There are often changes in mammograms after augmentation surgery. So do not be overly concerned, but definitely follow up with the ultrasound and any other recommendations that follow.
