A new form of cancer could be triggered by a type of breast implant popular with British women, scientists are warning.
At least 150 cases of the disease, called anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) of the breast, have been reported, including a handful in Britain.
Nine in 10 cases of the disease a cancer of the immune system have been in women who have received breast implants with a textured outer shell, according to experts.

What kind of breast implants do the other 1% use?
99% of women in Britain have breast implants?
Other than the women who get the implants for a reason, such as a mastectomy, they simply DESERVE what happens next. If you can’t live with the body God gave you, then tough.
“99% of women in Britain have breast implants?”
LOL! I never thought much of British women to begin with, but if 99% need implants, then I wonder if they were born as women.
Maybe that explains the fact that the British population is declining like mad and their country will be repopulated by others within a generation or so.
So I guess according to you everyone who had braces or gotten a crown deserves to get oral cancer?
rofl...no, it says 99% of the women who have breast implants, that’s not 99% of the actual women....silly.
“So I guess according to you everyone who had braces or gotten a crown deserves to get oral cancer?”
Yep, you DESERVE what you get. Both my wife and myself could use braces (and we can easily afford them, even without insurance), but we take what we’re given. As to crowns, if it affects one ability to eat meat, then one MUST get crowns. If not, then it can be debated.
I’m JUST SICK of British Women thinking that increased mammary size will suddenly make them attractive. There’s more to it, starting with personality, and then politics.
Ahh, no one deserves cancer.
“Ahh, no one deserves cancer.”
One deserves what they get. If I jump off the Golden Gate, then I deserve what happens next.
100% of the women with this cancer drink water. 100% of them breathe oxygen. The press breathlessly reports this kind of nonsense without fail. In 1980 there was a post mortality study of pancreatic cancer deaths that showed nearly 90% of the victims drank coffee, which USA Today headlined with a huge story about the cancer risks of coffee. Once controlled for diet and alcohol intake [which was the actual cause] this "breathtaking correlation" disappeared.
Seeing an effect and noting a common point of intersection with a pre-event cause has a name: Superstition. Superstition isn't science, and government funding doesn't make it so.
I agree with you.
If healthy women put foreign objects in their bodies just for vanity and don’t expect it to affect their health down the line, then they deserve the disease.
Mastectomy is a different story.
I’m just curious why men don’t surgically install stuff into their bodies.
Hence it follows that people who make completely asinine remarks about terminal illnesses on internet forums deserve to be viewed as ignorant morons.
You make an exception on dental work if it’s needed to eat meat? What if you were intended to be a vegetarian? Your logic is conflicted and massively flawed. We shouldn’t live in houses, drive cars, wear clothes, or work for money, either.
“Hence it follows that people who make completely asinine remarks about terminal illnesses on internet forums deserve to be viewed as ignorant morons.”
Agree...if a person does something AS DUMB as putting a FOREIGN OBJECT in their body for no reasonable purpose, then they are an ignorant moron.
No glasses either?
What a moron.
Based on your comments a Karma ass kicking is on the way.
“You make an exception on dental work if its needed to eat meat? What if you were intended to be a vegetarian?”
You don’t need functional teeth to eat vegetarian. Eating meat is the MEANING of being a human, at least on this site.
You missed my point. Re-read your posts sequentially.
“No glasses either? What a moron.”
I don’t know too many people that IMPLANT glasses. But if you mean Cataracts, then that is a MEDICAL NECESSITY, unlike most breast implants.
Aren't those temporary? One doesn't need surgery to have those removed and they're not inside the body. Anyway, braces and crowns are needed to fix an existing problem. Big boobs are not needed for survival unless it's the new brain.
Back to teeth. I think fillings are more of a problem if they're mercury.
“Based on your comments a Karma ass kicking is on the way.”
Actually, no. I don’t ABUSE my body like the people that into NEEDLESS implants and plastic surgery. But I do understand where it it does make sense.
“If healthy women put foreign objects in their bodies just for vanity and dont expect it to affect their health down the line, then they deserve the disease.”
I don’t know about “deserve the disease”, but they certainly are in NO POSITION to complain or file lawsuits if they get sick.
But will you look better? Will men like you more?
You're comparing apples to oranges, BobL, if I may say so. ;>0
Poland Syndrome - look it up
Makes sense - if there is a MEDICAL REASON, then it may well be worth rolling the dice on implants.
99% of daily mail writers cannot compose a proper English sentence.
With 150 cases reported, I’m hardly thinking this is wide spread.
Wow that’s terrible!
Now if we could find out how much GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) is giving us Cancer?
Anyone who gives a dam about their health better read up on this stuff.
“Only One in a Hundred British Women Without Breast Implants”
Never understood the need for implants other than vanity and lack of self worth.
What a compassionate heart you have. Such a Christian attitude! So if you develop cancer, are we to assume that you did something to deserve all that suffering, financial ruin, grief, loss, and an agonizing death? You must be a horrible person to deserve that.
ZIIING, bada bump.
.if a person does something AS DUMB as making glib comments about the horrors of cancer, then they are an ignorant moron.
99% have breast implants ?
There is no MEDICAL REASON to GET implants. There is only a medical reason why a woman is suddenly unhappy with her physical appearance. Implants never save a life, and are ever necessary for life support. They are simply to help women cope with the sudden change in their appearance during a harrowing experience like chemotherapy.
I prefer natural ones
And for those who’ve had cancer, consider homemade prosthetics in bras! Be creative! And if someone irks you, toss one at ‘em!
Well, I love a war on FR so here goes.
First, it's pretty axiomatic about women that they obsess over their appearance. Don't blame this on culture or the media; women have been like this throughout time. The Bible cautions women against excessive regard for their appearance, and it has been well documented that women of antiquity from Cleopatra to Jezebel all obsessed with hair, clothing, and the forms of makeup and youth potions available at the time.
Acknowledging said article, a female journalist at the Daily Mail a number of years ago did a personal study of the effect of bigger breasts on British men. She was a normal, attractive gal but wasn't well-endowed; she had a makeup artist prepare a new rack that looked as real as anything. The impact on men was astounding. Check out the article yourself:
Given that such is the effect of bigger boobs on the men who view them, I am not surprised that 30,000 women in the UK get boob jobs each year. I expect that 300,000 or 3 million women wish they could, or wish they would.
So BobL, for heavens sake, back off. Sounds like you have a dog in this hunt because you are waaaay too obsessed with this matter.
Great article, thanks for posting.
Constantly using CAPITALS is also pretty JUVENILE as well.
Admit it, you wished you had seen her strut by with her stuff. Can’t lie; I did.
I IMMEDIATELY started scanning the story for linked photos, LOL.
Then IGNORE me.
As I'm sure most people do when you get on your high horse.
Listening to you, I have this strange sensation as if I saw you walking on the street, alone, wearing an "I'm with STUPID" t-shirt.
