Breast Clips

I had a breast biopsy done yesterday and they placed  a titatium clip inside my breast as a marker.
Are they safe, has anyone had them removed ?
Thanks

I've had mine since Dec. 2007. And,sure enough it appeared my recent (last month) mammogram... just as I was told that it would. To my knowledge, these clips are entirely safe. I personally, have no complaints with it. In fact, it gives me a measure of comfort knowing that it's there for future referencing. When I consider the purpose that it serves, I couldn't imagine having mine removed.
