FDA Links Breast Implants To Rare Form Of Cancer
USA Today reports that the FDA has found that breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma, a form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is now being connected to at least 9 deaths. The FDA says for the most part treatment for this cancer is simply removing the implants but that some chemotherapy and radiation have been needed for cases.
It appears that the cancer could be related to the texture of the implant and encourages anyone interested in getting implants to do their research on the products being used. The FDA says they have been investigating cancer causing implants since 2011. The World Health Organization aka WHO came to the same findings about the textured implants last year.
