Swollen lymph nodes after saline breast augmentation

Thanks for your question. New masses in the axilla or breast are something that you should have checked out. There are many causes for lymph node swelling but one of the concerns is that this may represent breast cancer. I know that's a scary thing to hear and it may be nothing but it absolutely shoud be checked. Make an appointment today!
