Women with Breast Implants Warned of Rare Cancer
- Posted on: Aug 29 2016
“Women who decide to have breast implants, either for cosmetic reasons or to rebuild after a mastectomy, are being given a new warning about a rare cancer directly linked to the implants.
Earlier this year, the U.S. FDA warned that it has received more reports about a type of cancer called anaplastic large cell lymphoma, or ALCL, in women with breast implants.
For a long time, doctors dismissed concerns that breast implants could cause cancer. But the FDA says it has reviewed as many as 250 cases of ALCL in women with breast implants worldwide.”
