    Yes, but having implants makes it more difficult to detect lumps when performing a self-exam.

    Yes. I was diagnosed October 26th with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. My surgery is November 28th. Plan A right now is a lumpectomy and radiation and estrogen therapy. I had breast augmentation in 2008.
