Cancer Linked to Surface of Breast Implants

More cases of lymphoma caused by breast implants reports FDA

The FDA has seen a jump in the number of cases of a rare type of lymphoma linked to breast implants, which the agency says results from its efforts to educate stakeholders of the risks, as well as its work to encourage patients and providers to file reports.

In a statement, the FDA's Dr. Binita Ashar said there are now 457 women in the USA diagnosed with breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), up from 414 cases in the last report.

After discussing the risk with French authorities, the FDA moved forward with its own warning on cancer risk from breast implants.

As of September 2018, the FDA has received 660 adverse event reports regarding cases in the US, linked to 457 unique cases of the disease and nine patient deaths, the agency said. Today it made an announcement that they are sending letters to doctors, primary care physicians and gynecologists indicating to dig in more on ACLC so they can perform the diagnosis and treatment well to those who are affected.

In the past, the FDA has reported that one in five women will have breast implants removed within 10 years of implantation over concerns they will rupture.

About 11 million women in the world have breast implants, nut those implants are not created equally.

"We hope that this information prompts providers and patients to have important, informed conversations about breast implants", the federal agency said.

"We want all healthcare providers to be aware. particularly in patients with new swelling, lumps, or pain around breast implants, to expedite diagnosis of this malignancy", the letter said. This includes reporting individual cases as well as rates you may have experienced during your practice.

Smooth implants are softer than their textured counterparts, allowing for a more natural look and feel - but may lead to slightly visible rippling and shifting in position over time.

The amount of women diagnosed with BIA-ALCL - which kills cells in the immune system and normally begins with pain and swelling in the breast - shot up from 414 cases in the last 12 months and 359 the year before that.

The report also detailed that most of cancer cases were found in women with textured surfaces on the implants rather than implants with a smooth exterior. "Textured breast implants tend to stick to the body's tissue, helping them stay in the same position over time".

A large manufacturer of breast implants, Allergan, suffered internationally in December when France issued a mandatory recall of textured breast implants, and shortly thereafter Allergan lost its CE mark.
