If a woman have had breast implant, is it more difficult for her to detect a tumor through a self-exam?


I have Had my period for 4 weeks now?

Yes. The implant are not under the muscle as suggested but surrounded by a pocket behind the breast. Sometimes women develop stiff tissues around implant (body rejecting them a little) and these knobbles could mask any serious lumps.

Breast Cancer?


Problem near ovarian cysts?

No, because the implant is below the muscle.
