Just got results of an MRI looking for a rupture in my cohesive silicones. No rupture found. Can capsules cause lumps?

MRI of Breasts
Chances are the lump was seen on the MRI and is therefore nothing to worry about. You've got two things going on, and they are not related. The lump should be managed by your primary care physician, unless that doctor determines the lump is part of the implant/capsule. If you have capsular contracture, the standard of care is an operation with replacement of the implant, so getting an MRI was not necessary.
Best of luck!
