What Are the Dangers of Breast Implants?

Breast implants have a broad number of applications in the modern world. The most common uses of breast implants include helpful reconstructive surgery for women who have had mastectomies, gender-affirming surgery, and cosmetic use. While their uses may vary, recently breast implants have been found to harbor some hidden dangers.

In recent years, thousands of women have spoken out about the dangers of breast implants. One of the most powerful dangers that rocked the world was the discovery that some breast implants could cause a unique variety of cancer.

Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large-Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) is a type of cancer that only occurs in people with breast implants. The prevailing science suggests that a textured breast implant irritates breast tissue while implanted, eventually leading to cancerous growth. This has led to textured breast implants being banned in the U.S., Australia, Canada, and other nations globally.

The other major reported effect of breast implants is a variety of symptoms grouped under the banner of Breast Implant Illness (BII). BII is a condition that is still struggling to gain mass acceptance, but thousands of people have come forward testifying that after being implanted with breast implants, they experienced chronic fatigue, brain fog, rashes, food sensitivities, and many more symptoms.

If you have developed BIA-ALCL or BII, you may be able to join the litigation movement to get compensation for your injuries. In order to become a part of these breast implant lawsuits, you will need a mass torts attorney.
