Travel Tips from Post-Mastectomy Patients

Airport security technology will not harm a silicone breast form.
  • It isn't likely that a silicone breast form will set off the metal detector alarm, however, if something on you triggers the alarm, you will be subject to a secondary search which might include a pat down.
  • If the above happens, you can request that this be done in a private screening area.You can carry a medical notification card to discreetly inform security of your medical condition if you choose (but it's not required).
A card is available for download at the TSA website.
(Note that use of the card does not exempt a traveler from the normal security process.)
  • According to the U.S. Transportation Security Administration, you should neither be asked, nor agree to lift or remove any article of clothing to reveal your breast prosthesis, and you should not be asked to remove the form itself.
  • If you choose to carry your prosthesis or mastectomy bra in your accessible property rather than wearing it, it will be allowed through the checkpoint after it is screened.
  • The prosthesis or the mastectomy bra is not subject to the 311 rules that are normally applicable to liquids, gels and aerosols because it is considered to be medically necessary.
Please keep in mind that this references the United States and not Canada and that every country has its own security procedures and policies. More Info.
