Lump After Breast Augmentation with Saline Implants

I had saline breast implants put in about 9 months ago. There is a lump on my left breast that feels like a water bubble. Is this normal? What could this be?

ANSWER

Masses post-op

New lumps after breast augmentation must be investigated and ruled out for malignancy. Most of these masses wind up being benign but they should be investigated. Steps to figure out the nature of the lesion could be as benign as an ultrasound. The mass may represent a resolving hematoma or, in rarer circumstances, an isolated seroma - however no breast mass should ever be ignored. See you plastic surgeon soon. I hope this helps.
