No. : No. The vena cava filter is in the main vein in your abdomen bringing blood back to your heart from your abdomen, pelvis and legs. An arteriorgram involves the arteries so there will be no interference.

I : I understand your concerns as it can be scary when you are not sure what the tests involve. The first thing you would need to do is see your obgyn or primary care doctor and let them evaluate you. They most likely will order a mammogram which you should be getting once a year. They might also order an ultrasound. Both these tests are non-invasive and will help the doctor characterize this "knot".
