If you missed this news in 2011, IT'S BACK.
On Twitter yesterday, MEDSCAPE notified us that a "maybe associated" type of lymphoma, ALCL has now more than "maybe" association with implants.
The article quotes FDA as saying they
" concur with the World Health Organization designation of breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) as a rare T-cell lymphoma that can develop following breast implants,"
Of course, there are reminders that DEVICE problem reporting isn't gospel, etc. but they're not ignoring the preponderant mentions of textured implants. And as for research as a whole, the agency says:
"All of the information to date suggests that women with breast implants have a very low but increased risk of developing ALCL compared to women who do not have breast implants."
I wish you health.
