Yes: You'd need to ask a doc who's examining you, to confirm this. Usually, the clips are deep in the breast tissue, and it's unlikely that anyone would be able to feel it.
Dr. Vicki Levine

Yes it could: I think you should see the doctor that did this procedure and ask that an xray be done to see if the clip is still there.
