Breast implants linked to cancer rare but

The Food and Drug Administration is warning against breast implants and is investigating a possible link between breast implants and anaplastic large cell lymphoma.  U.s. health regulators that women who have saline or silicone gel implants may be an increased risk for a rare and serious cancer.

The concerns are investigated by the FDA for 34 cases nationally and 60 cases worldwide ALCL have been reported since 1997. Although there have always been warnings of a possible connection breast implants and breast cancer, it is a pity that we had to wait so long for this disease other connected to be studied.

According to an article on MSNBC, FDA believes the prostheses are still safe in General, but the data suggest that the cancer can develop a scar capsule near the plant.  ALCL objectives of the immune system, and the FDA is asking health workers to report any confirmed cases of this type of cancer found in patients with breast implants.

This is certainly frightening news for those who already have breast implants, and this writer wonders whether it will be because of a break in women who are currently seeking to get breast implants.
