The Doctors discuss the case of how a woman's tattoo reportedly led to a false cancer diagnosis.
The woman, who got a tattoo 15 years prior, was forced to remove a lymph node from her armpit because doctors believed she had lymphoma. The woman's tattoo, which was on her back and shoulder, caused the lymph node to become stained with black tattoo ink.
The Doctors feel this case is a good reminder that as more people get tattoos on various parts of their body that they should be aware of the potential risks.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says he feels people getting tattoos should avoid getting them in the armpit area due to the possible risk of the ink traveling through the body.
Additionally, plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon notes that people getting tattoos on their neck should be aware that tattoos on that area of the body are not removable due to the skin being so thin.
