Do implants cause breast cancer?

March 11, 2024

The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is investigating a possible link between breast implants and ALCL (anaplastic large cell lymphoma). This is not breast cancer, but a cancer of the immune cells. According to WHO (the World Health Organization), breast implant-related ALCL is very rare and when caught early, it’s easy to treat. Dr. Demaree encourages all patients with implants to get frequent screenings for breast cancer. You should contact Premier Surgical Arts if you see any concerns, like swelling or other visible changes.
