Screw and plate not removed after 6 yrs from surgery, can we remove now?


My crural leg main bone was broken in 2011 (age 19) and the doctor kept one plate with 2 screw to set the bone perfectly, but still (age 25) I haven't removed it out. I don't have any pain or irritation. Please advise, is there possible to remove this plate now? It should be removed? Some of my friends telling it is dangerous in older age.
