Q: Breast Pain Very Scared!

Submitted by Q-A from clee on Sun, 05/15/2011 - 11:35

I've had saline under the muscle implants for 5 yrs. I got a deep tissue massage 1 week ago on my back. It was very uncomfortable for my boobs. After a while my left boob started to hurt a lot so she stopped. Afterwards when I looked at my left breast there was a small red bump which hurt to press on. My left breast is burning and hurts to press on. my nipple is sensitive. The bottom half of the areola hurts when i press on it where the valve is. did i damage the valve or tissue or chest muscle?

A: Difficult to know if the bump arose from the massage

Based on your provided information, it is difficult to know if the bump arose from the massage or was simply painful because of the massage. It is very possible that an infection in the skin became worse with the massage. If the lesion becomes worse or fails to improve in the next several days, it would be prudent to see your family doctor or surgeon. With your photos provided, I doubt there to be a problem with the implant itself.
