Unusual swelling caused by Covid-19 vaccines is being picked up on routine mammograms and other scans, causing unnecessary fear, radiologists say. “If a woman had a vaccine in the arm on the same side, and the lymph nodes are swollen, this is a normal biological response. It’s totally expected,” said Dr. Connie Lehman, chief of breast imaging in Massachusetts General’s department of radiology. Tales of unnecessary biopsies spurred the patient care committee of the Society of Breast Imaging to put out an advisory in January: Ask your patients about their Covid-19 status, and record the date and which arm received the vaccine. Consider that before automatically scheduling a biopsy.
