I have a silicone implant. Most recently I have been experiencing a localized burning sensation in that breast. Last night the burning woke me up. Time for an MRI? Is this a common symptom with silicone leakage?
Leakage? I had a mastectomy 7 years ago.

yes, with implant companies usually recommending MRI scans periodically every 3 years or so, perhaps further investigation would be helpful especially with a history of mastectomy.. best of luck
