Background:It is thought that implants interfere with breast cancer diagnosis and that cancers in women who have had breast augmentation carry a worse prognosis.Methods:A prospective breast cancer database was reviewed, comparing augmented and nonaugmented patients for details of histology, palpability, tumor size, nodal status, mammographic status, receptor status, nuclear grade, stage, and outcome.Results:Ninety-nine cancers in augmented women and 2857 cancers in nonaugmented women were… Expand
Breast Cancer in Patients with Prior Augmentation: Presentation, Stage, and Lymphatic Mapping
TLDR
Breast conservation and lymphatic mapping can be performed successfully in previously augmented patients and there have been no clinically detected axillary recurrences in the patients who had a negative sentinel lymph node biopsy. Expand
Breast Cancer after Augmentation: Oncologic and Reconstructive Considerations among Women Undergoing Mastectomy
TLDR
Among women with augmentation, however, subglandular implants were associated with more advanced breast tumors commonly detected on palpation rather than mammography, and increased vigilance in breast cancer screening is recommended among women with subg landular augmentation. Expand
Diagnosis, Treatment, and Management of Breast Cancer in Previously Augmented Women
TLDR
A retrospective review of the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of 12 augmented patients from 1998 to 2004 who developed breast cancer suggests a tendency toward delayed diagnosis in augmented women relative to age‐matched controls, but this did not appear to influence the overall prognosis. Expand
Breast Cancer Diagnosis and Prognosis in Augmented Women
TLDR
Despite the diminished sensitivity of mammography in women with implants, augmented and nonaugmented patients are diagnosed at a similar stage and have a comparable prognosis, while implants appear to facilitate detection of palpable breast cancers on physical examination. Expand
A Review of the Oncologic and Surgical Management of Breast Cancer in the Augmented Breast: Diagnostic, Surgical and Surveillance Challenges
TLDR
An evidence-based summary of recommendations has been produced to guide breast surgeons in managing this particular group of patients and patients can be reassured that the presence of an implant does not increase the risk of breast cancer developing or affect the prognosis if breast cancer does develop. Expand
The Dilemmas' in Investigating Breast Cancer Following Breast Augmentation
TLDR
Mammography is a poor modality for the diagnosis of early breast cancer in women following breast augmentation surgery and authors would advise the consideration of MRI mammography and focused Ultrasound scan in the radiological assessment of these women. Expand
Effect of breast augmentation on the accuracy of mammography and cancer characteristics.
TLDR
Breast augmentation decreases the sensitivity of screening mammography among asymptomatic women but does not increase the false-positive rate and despite the lower accuracy of mammography in women with augmentation, the prognostic characteristics of tumors are not influenced by augmentation. Expand
A Review of the Oncologic and Surgical Management of Breast Cancer in the Augmented Breast: Diagnostic, Surgical and Surveillance Challenges
The challenges of managing breast cancer in women with augmented breasts include screening, diagnosis, oncologic and revisional surgery, and surveillance. In addition, women with augmented breastsExpand
Breast carcinoma in augmented breasts: MRI findings.
OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to characterize the MRI features of breast carcinomas detected in augmented breasts. MATERIALS AND METHODS A review of the MRI database identified 54Expand
Screening and diagnosis of breast cancer in augmented women
TLDR
Diagnostic methods for augmented women and the optimal screening method for augmentedWomen are discussed and the question of whether augmented women should not undergo core needle biopsy because of the possibility of damage to the implant is considered. Expand

The Detection of Breast Cancer After Augmentation Mammaplasty
TLDR
Standard two-view mammography has a low sensitivity in detecting palpable cancers in patients who have undergone augmentation mammaplasty and should be evaluated as a routine adjunctive screening method in this group of patients. Expand
Imaging of breast cancer after augmentation mammoplasty.
TLDR
In this study, women with implants who developed breast cancer presented with nodal metastases in only 28% of cases, and Modified position views should be performed in all patients, and sonography may be helpful in evaluating palpable masses even when mammography is normal. Expand
Imaging of Breast Cancer after Augmentation Mammoplasty
TLDR
In this study, women with implants who developed breast cancer presented with nodal metastases in only 2% of cases, and Modified position views should be performed in all patients, and sonography may be helpful in evaluating palpable masses even when mammography is normal. Expand
The Role of Mammography in Detecting Breast Cancer in Augmented Breasts
TLDR
The role of mammography as a screening tool in making the diagnosis of breast cancer in women who have undergone augmentation mammoplasty is confirmed and the importance of self-examination and follow-up by the plastic surgeon is stressed. Expand
The Relationship Between Breast Cancer and Augmentation Mammaplasty: An Epidemiologic Study
TLDR
A retrospective cohort study of 3111 women followed through various public and medical records for a total of 18,476 person-years suggests that many such women may have a reduced amount of breast tissue, but data on this are unavailable. Expand
Breast cancer diagnosis in women with subglandular silicone gel-filled augmentation implants.
TLDR
Although additional modified compression views offer a moderate improvement in breast cancer detection, imaging with tangential mammographic views, sonography of palpable areas, and breast physical examination in conjunction with mammography will offer additional benefit in Breast cancer detection. Expand
Breast Cancer After Mammary Augmentation
TLDR
It is suggested that breast augmentation and the patient's psychologic considerations may delay the diagnosis of breast cancer, and patients may fare worse when breast cancer develops after mammary augmentation. Expand
Breast cancer: mammographic and sonographic findings after augmentation mammoplasty.
TLDR
The detection of breast cancer in the augmented breast by means of mammography is possible, even in patients without palpable findings, and Modified-position views and sonography may be helpful in evaluating palpable masses. Expand
Breast Masses in the Augmentation Mammaplasty Patient: The Role of Ultrasound
TLDR
The role of ultrasound as an adjunct to mammographic special views, including posterior displacement, in previously augmented patients who presented with a clinically palpable mass is investigated, finding it is helpful in distinguishing breast parenchymal lesions from palpable irregularities of the implant. Expand
Breast cancer diagnosis and survival in women with and without breast implants.
TLDR
It is concluded that women with breast implants in whom breast cancer develops are not diagnosed in a later stage and do not experience an impaired survival as compared with breast cancer patients without implants. Expand
