I am always surprised when I see a new patient for a Lousiville Breast Augmentation and they ask me if implants, especially silicone implants cause cancer.
The answer is a resounding NO! Why in the world would we ever implant a medical device into a person knowing it causes cancer. That would be wrong on every level there is.
Breast implants, saline or silicone, have no relationship to breast cancer. In fact, a large percentage of women with breast cancer have these same implants placed to reconstruct their breast. Furthermore, when we look at large groups of women with implants in, some studies indicate that they tend to get breast cancer at a lower rate than women without implants.
So, if someone told you you would get cancer because you have implants placed it’s just not true.
