The doctors said the damage to the body can cause the old tattoo
MOSCOW, October 3 — RIA Novosti. Tattoos can cause disease even many years after their application, writes the journal Annals of Internal Medicine.
Some time ago in the hospital I addressed 30-the summer inhabitant of Australia. The woman complained of enlarged lymph nodes and wanted to exclude cancer.
The doctors suspected lymphoma, but after a careful study of the seals found out that the cells of lymph nodes are painted in black pigment. Doctors believe that in this way the immune system of the patient reacted to the ink from the tattoo she did 15 years ago.
Lymph nodes function as a biological filter of the body and inflamed with the infection. The doctors have dealt with such cases, but it has always been about fresh tattoos.
After removal of the lymph nodes the health of the patient improved.
