Re: Titanium Clips

Hi Wonky - I too had a clip inserted last year when I had my annual mammogram and had to have another biopsy. I haven’t flown since I had it inserted so can’t yet comment on any issues at airports - but I seem to set off the alarms even when I wear no metal at all! Touch wood no issues from them. Evie xx

I was told this to make me less worried by dr, not sure if it’s true or not it made me smile which was what I needed at that time

Re: Titanium Clips

I have titanium clips from biopsy's. They told me that it was a marker so that they could find the exact same spot again. Part of this is because I'm in my 30s to my tissue is dense... the clips help when I get mammograms. I was told they would not set of airport alarms, although I haven't tested it out yet. After is healed (2 weeks) I didn't notice them being there.

Re: Titanium Clips

Thanks so much. These clips seem to be something which is a bit of a secret. Would like to understand more, before I brave an airport!

Re: Titanium Clips

Hi,

I had titanium clips left inside my boob when I had my biopsys, I have found it feel tender when I touch my boob and swollen a little. The lady said they would always be there even after surgery and that I may set off alarms when I go to airport. Hope this helps a little, I had them in 2017 and it is still same so you learn to live with them.

Hi. The fact these might has been implanted into my boob, during surgery was something 'new on me'. Any experiences ladies and particularly have they given you any bother as regards long term pain/swelling.
