TOPIC: Do Nodules Get Bigger Over Time?

Do Nodules Get Bigger Over Time? 1 year 9 months ago #1308700406

It's my understanding that nodules form because the like substances aggregate together and condense. If that's the case, once a Nodule does form, could it slowly grow in size due to the fact that it's pulling in surrounding PMMA (and the larger it gets the more it pulls, like a snowball effect)? Curious if this topic has been discussed previously or if there's any data or studies that have been done on it.

I've only seen nodules remain the same and/or dissipate, at least on myself. There was once a recent posting regarding the possibility of new module formation many months well after a procedure, but this appeared to be an anomaly, and reports with nodules getting larger would be outliers if there were any.

If a Nodule grows a noticeable amount well after healing/recovery, I wouldn't be alarmed but would certainly have it checked out right away; things like foreign body granuloma come to mind (again, outliers).
