No simple answer: There is no simple answer to your question. Some may benefit from cortisone injections whereas others may require excision.Sometimes excision is followed by a short course of radiation. Unfortunately some of them have a high rate of recurrence. I would recommend seeing a plastic surgeon in your area.

No: A nasal 'hump' is a combination of bone and cartilage that would need to be reduced surgically to correct the prominence.

No: The MRI is the gold standard for evaluating gel breast implants for a possible rupture but are expensive and may not be covered by insurance. A less expensive way which might give the information would be an ultrasound. In any case you should see a board certified plastic surgeon to have this evaluated. Also, are you up to date on your mammograms?
