Textured Breast Implant Cancer
The FDA warns women with textured breast implants of an increased risk of cancer. This comes a few months after a study revealed textured breast implant cancer risks. The study showed Allergan textured implants cause cancer.
Allergan Textured Implants
Allergan’s Biocell implants are used in breast reconstruction. The textured implant surface is designed to prevent slippage. But, the texture is causing lymphoma cells to grow. Allergan Biocell breast implants cause a specific type of rare cancer. The name of this cancer is anaplastic large cell lymphoma.
Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma
This is not breast cancer. In fact, this is cancer in the immune system. Anaplastic large cell lymphoma grows in bone, soft tissue, spleen, liver, or skin. But, this cancer grows in the scar tissue surrounding the implant area of women with implants.
Textured Breast Implant Recall
About 5% of US women with breast implants have an Allergan implant. Allergan has issued a worldwide recall of all Biocell textured implants. What does it mean for a woman with Allergan breast implants? Talk to a dangerous medical device lawyer. The FDA does not recommend removing the implants. But, the FDA says anyone with symptoms should talk to their doctor. Symptoms include pain and swelling.
Breast Implant Cancer Treatment
Anaplastic large cell lymphoma grows slowly. Treatment involves removing the breast implants. If your doctor finds textured breast implant cancer, talk to a lawyer.
