Study Shows Breast Implant Patients Have Same Breast Cancer Survival Rate

Posted by Laurence Weider on July 13, 2011

breastcancer-dallas-texasA Canadian study has confirmed what doctors have known, which is that women with breast implants who go on to develop breast cancer have similar outcomes as women who develop cancer but do not have implants.

There has long been a concern among women with breast implants that the implants themselves would create problems with obtaining accurate mammogram results. This study provides reassurance that there is no concern along those lines.

Along a similar vein, women with implants actually have a much lower rate of breast cancer as compared to peer groups in the population.
