Breast Cancer And Screening With Implants
Whether you choose Silicone Gel Breast Implants or Saline Filled Breast Implants, standard mammographic views will be inadequate for standard breast screening.
You will need to supplement these with additional oblique views or can be combined with ultrasound to image the breast tissue adequately.
A review of the incidences of breast cancer in women with Breast Implants demonstrates that there is no increased incidence of breast cancer in patients with Silicone Breast Implants.Ease of imaging is improved if the Prosthesis is placed deep to the Pectoralis major muscle, rather than between the muscle and the breast gland.
There is no increase in mortality in women who have Breast Implants who develop breast cancer.
