Breast Implants and the Risks
This is not breast cancer, but a very rare condition involving the shell of the implant itself. According to the FDA Report, “with an estimated five to 10 million breast implant recipients worldwide, agency experts say the known ALCL cases are too few to say conclusively that breast implants cause the disease.
