France requires cancer warning on silicone breast implants

Plastic Surgery SmartBrief | Mar 24, 2015

Silicone breast implants in France must now carry a warning about the risk for anaplastic large cell lymphoma, according to the Ministry of Social Affairs, Health and Women's Rights. ALCL in the breast is diagnosed in 3 in 100 million American women each year, according to the National Cancer Institute. Though the condition is extremely rare, researchers are working to identify possible causes, screening methods, diagnostic evaluation methods and recommended treatments, says plastic surgeon Michael Edwards.
