Report: Rare form of cancer linked to breast implants

Anaplastic large cell lymphoma, or ALCL have been found in breast implant patients.

The Wall Street Journal reported, “Anaplastic large cell lymphoma, or ALCL, isn’t breast cancer, but very rarely the disease — which is treatable — can show up there. That’s what has happened with a small number of women who have had implants; their cancers have been found ‘in the fibrous scar capsule’ surrounding the implant, but not in the breast tissue itself, the FDA says.” While the case pool remains small, more studies need to be conducted to ensure safety.
