Are breast implants at risk of breast cancer?

The American Cancer Society recommends that women who place breast implants still need regular breast exams like normal women and screening for risk factors.

Breast implants can mutate over time, so periodic breast examinations and ultrasounds are essential to prevent incidents such as rupture of the breast implant, infection, necrosis of the breasts.

Regular examinations and screenings with mammography, ultrasound also help to detect breast cancer and non-differentiated large cell lymphoma early.
