There is currently no evidence to suggest that breast implants increase the risk
of breast cancer. However, breast implants may make it more difficult to detect breast cancer during mammography, which is why additional imaging techniques may be needed for women with breast implants. It’s important for women with breast implants to inform their healthcare provider of their implants prior to undergoing breast cancer screening. In some cases, the implant may need to be temporarily moved to allow for better imaging. Overall, while breast implants do not appear to increase the risk of breast cancer, it’s important to maintain regular breast cancer screenings as recommended by your healthcare provider.
