I had saline implants done 12years ago and I always do monthly BSE. This week I noticed a lump on top of my right breast implant where my boyfriend was kissing my breasts. I am bruised from him kissing and touching my breast but why would I end up w/ a lump? I am really scared this might be cancer. I went to see my ob gyn today & had it checked but I can't seem to focus & worry this might be cancerous.

Thanks for nice query.     

It is very good habit to do breast self examination, especially after breast implant.

Any breast lump at this age must be examined by surgeon and followed by fine needle aspiration cytology and mammography.

Chances of post breast kissing lump is very very rare and most of time it is due to some infection, that also have sign and symptoms of infection. Bruised from kissing can lead to infectious lump.

There don`t appear to be any cause to worry, but fine needle aspiration cytology and mammography is must.
