I had an augmentation with implants 5 years - I have now found quite a large hard lump behind my nipple. Is it a worry?

Breast lump

Thank you for your question. I understand your concern. This should absolutely be evaluated and worked up. I suggest you start with your internist or GYN. Best of luck.

Breast lump

I would see your GP and your PS. You may well need some imaging which would be best through the NHS route rather than privately via your PS.

Yes, I would say that any newly found breast lesion or "lump" warrants evaluation ASAP.  I would suggest that you start with your primary care doctor, Gyn, or internist. Best wishes.
