Study confirms that breast implants do not affect breast cancer survival

A recent Canadian study long term follow-up (see here) confirms prior observations that women with breast implants who go on to develop breast cancer have similar outcomes as women without implants who develop cancer. This is more reassurance to our patients about this theoretical concern with implants (ie. that potential difficulty with mammograms would lead to delayed breast cancer diagnosis and worse outcomes). Along a similar vein, women with implants actually have a much lower (~ 40% lower I think) rate of breast cancer as compared to peer groups in the population.

I think this is a good news that would also remove psychlogical guilt from women who suffer breast cancer.

Thanks for the Good news. I've read in online news that breast implants saves woman after Hezbollah attack.

The young woman went through surgery two years ago to have a larger chest.During the war she was wounded in the chest by shrapnel that got stuck in the implants instead of penetrating further.
