Hard ball behind nipple after enlargement
- The hard ball may be glands swelling with your menstrual period,
- Or feeling the implant behind the healing incision - if the implant is over the muscle,
- Or as you say, the valve, but it usually is placed so you cannot feel it.
- Or firmness of the healing incision, if yours is around the nipple.
- See your plastic surgeon for an exam to advise you as to what the actual cause is.
- Best wishes.
