In brief: No true risk

The biopsy clips are typically made of titanium, not metal like jewelry.
Most of the clips are not contraindications to mri, due to their lack of metal. A clip should always be placed after a core biopsy.

In brief: Please

Please be seen immediately by the breast surgeon and share your concerns.
Having pain is a concerning symptom and this needs to be evaluated right away. I am sorry this happened to you; but please don't wait if you are having pain, and please have this immediately evaluated. If you developed redness, fever, or increased pain then you would have to be seen as an emergency.
