I fell and now I have pain on the inside of my breast, should I be worried?

I have been having pains on the inside of my left breast especially when I lay on my side or I bend over. I had saline breast implants in May of 2010. I fell a couple of weeks ago and took most of the fall on my left side, or at least my cheek bone was bruised due to the fall. I had the surgery done in Arkansas where I live but I am in Alaska because I work in the oilfield industry and will not be back in Arkansas until November 04. Is this something I should be worried about?

Thank you for your question. I would suggest seeing a plastic surgeon for an in person evaluation so that a full physical examination is made. However, when saline implants rupture, they deflate (unlike silicone implants) and you would be able to detect this. Good luck. Hope this helps.
