Case Discussion

This lady had this procedure done to augment her breasts in the far East in 1998. The technique involves the percutaneous injection of silicon directly into the breast parenchyma. On MLO views you can in some cases see slicon in the regional lymphnodes

It's tough to pick up a small cancer in busy breasts like these. The breasts were clinically on exam.
