9 deaths and rare cancer associated with breast implants has been reported in the US
The FDA says "all of the information to date suggests that women with breast implants have a very low but increased risk of developing ALCL compared to women who do not have breast implants". Yesterday, the FDA issued an update on its understanding of breast implant-associated ALCL cases. The agency has received 359 reports of possible breast implant-associated cancer cases as of February 1.
But the exact number of cases "remains difficult to determine due to significant limitations in world-wide reporting and lack of global implant sales data,". Breast implants is the top cosmetic surgery performed in the US with 290,467 procedures in 2016.
