Breast Implants Cause Cancers

Breast implants are increasingly linked to various malignancies throughout the body.   Certain studies and several medical case reports have shown that Melanoma, brain cancer, Myeloma, respiratory cancer, various breast cancers, various lymphomas, carcinomas and sarcomas have been linked to or associated with breast implants.  Finally on September 8, 2022 the FDA issued a statement acknowledging what users of breast implants have known for decades which is they cause various cancers. 

In the last few years attention has been paid to the link between textured breast implants and BIA-ALCL however other types of breast implants such as smooth silicone gel breast implants and even buttock implants are implicated in other types of cancers.  Silicone implants are causing various cancers in women and cancers are another Symptom of breast implants.   

For over twenty years Dede Graham of our Facebook group has been collecting a growing body of information, studies and medical case reports that show an association between silicone breast implants and cancer and here is a sampling:
