The Effect of Breast Augmentation on Detecting Breast Cancer
By Nabta Team
90% of breast cancers are detected by the woman themselves. Keeping that in mind, women who get breast augmentation should make sure that they familiarize themselves with the way their breasts look and feel after the surgery.
After augmentation surgery, the breasts could have more folds or a dimple that wasn’t previously there – it is important to make note of the new normal of your breasts. Implants tend to push the normal breast tissue outward, so lumps may be noticed sooner. Moreover, mammograms with an implant in the breast are a little more difficult as the implant may get in the way of flattening the breasts – hence the need for additional mammogram pictures in women with breast implants in place.
