In brief: Breast lump removal

It is important to determine the cause of the breast lump in advance of surgery.
Surgical excision of a breast lump unrelated to the previous breast plastic surgery should, in general, be covered by one's health insurance policy. Is the lump is due to the previous plastic surgery (e.g., ruptured breast implant, silicone), be sure to check with your health insurance carrier before surgery.

In brief: Excellent question

Some insurance companies will deny future coverage of any breast surgery once implants are placed.
I would check the provisions of your policy for the answer.

In brief: Breast implant

It also will be covered by the implant company if the implant is ruptured they will investigate the amount is 1200 towards your surgery.
