DENVER (CBS4) – Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is a relief for most people, but some women are discovering a worrisome side effect from both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. The vaccine can cause lymph nodes to swell and that can mirror the signs of breast cancer.
Even a radiologist who specializes in breast imaging was alarmed.READ MORE: Injured Snowshoer Survives 30+ Hours In The Cold After Getting Lost In Boulder County
“I panicked, I’ll admit, initially,” said Dr. Bridget Rogers, radiologist at Solis Mammography.
She knew swollen lymph nodes could be a sign of breast cancer. So, in early January, she was alarmed.
“I had a big, visible, painful lump,” she told CBS4 Health Specialist Kathy Walsh.
The day before, Rogers had her second COVID-19 shot, the Pfizer vaccine. She knew a possible side effect was enlarged lymph nodes.
“I tried to reassure myself by remembering that this is actually a sign that the vaccine was doing what it’s supposed to do, activating your immune system,” she said.
Rogers admits she took a look with an ultrasound.
“It’s always different to be on the patient side of the experience,” she said. “It was a sigh of relief the second day when it started to improve rather than worsen.”READ MORE: Lafayette Juvenile Charged In Deadly Shooting Of Teenager
Rogers is not alone. She showed CBS4 the mammograms of another physician who’d gotten a vaccine.
“So this is last year. These are the lymph nodes that are enlarged this year.”
“I’ve been trying to forewarn women ahead of time,” said Dr. Stephanie Miller, a breast surgeon and Medical Director of the Breast Program at Rose Medical Center.
“We do not want to keep anyone from being part of the vaccine process,” said Miller.
She said breast cancer hasn’t slowed down during the pandemic. She tells women to get their mammograms, and let the mammography center know if you’ve recently had a vaccine.
“So that we can have the right explanation for what we’re seeing,” she said.
Miller said delaying mammograms this year has had consequences.
“Women are developing and presenting with breast cancer a little bit more later stage in the game, and we want to minimize that as much as possible,” Miller said.MORE NEWS: Randy Reams Arrested After Numerous Reports Of Sexual Assault Sparked Through Snapchat
She doesn’t want women to panic. Her message is get a COVID-19 vaccination and a mammogram, both are important for your health.

In past days, Carolina sandoval expressed her joy that her mother received the second dose of the coronavirus vaccine; however, feelings of reassurance about her immunization quickly faded after the lady began to experience some health problems.
Through his Instagram account, “La Venenosa” spoke in detail about the symptoms he has been experiencing Mrs. Amelia and said that he hopes that everything will pass soon, because he does not like at all to see that the person who gave him life is now in discomfort for something that, in theory, should be helping her.
“My mother got the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine and she didn’t get through the night well at all, she feels exhausted and her gums hurt. The arm that was vaccinated is the right arm and it hurts to the other side and is a general pain. Before this she had been perfect, it had no collateral effect the first time, but today she feels pain like never before in her life and she is very uncomfortable “said the driver.
Finally, the Venezuelan stressed that several people had already warned her that all these discomforts could occur, but both had faith that it would not happen. On the other hand, he pointed out that he has been by his side all the time, bringing him his food and seeing that none of the symptoms get worse or any new ones appear.
