I hope I can shed some light on this, as I can absolutely corrolate my breast vibration with a specific procedure. Read my recent experience below.
I recently had a Vacuum Assisted Breast Biopsy on my left breast on Friday, May 14, 2010 at the Steeple Chase Cancer Center of Somerville, NJ. Prior to the procedure the attending nurse explained that during the procedure the doctor would be placing tiny steel clips in the areas of concern as markers once the samples had been extracted. This, they explained, was so that if it becomes necessary to revisit the area in the future and xray will reflect where samples were previously removed.
Since the procedure, I have experienced slight vibrations in the related breast (left); and, only in that breast. The vibrations only last a few seconds, and I have not discovered a correlation to any specific cause. The first time I noticed it I was moving around my home in different areas and it did seem to follow text messages that arrived on my mobile phone. That may have been a coincidence though. The next time I noticed it was later that night while heating something in the microwave. Naturally I was concerned at that point. The following day, I noticed that the vibrations continued at work, but did not necessary follow mobile phone activity or any other electronic device. I work in IT and am surrounded by electronic equipment throughout the day.
My follow up appointment with my primary care doctor is next week, Wednesday, May 26, 2010, and I also have an appointment with the surgeon who prescribed the procedure in early June; but, I may call the Steeple Chase center to inquire about the vibrations rather than wait until then.
Have a little peace of mind that if you have experienced this you are not only not alone, but you are not going CRAZY.
Stay tuned for an update.
