Background: Recent years have witnessed growing concerns about the possible adverse effects of implants on breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. Numerous reports describe how implants might interfere with mammography and impair the ability to detect cancer. Several publications document the diminished sensitivity of mammography in augmented patients with palpable tumors. However, epidemiologic studies comparing stage of disease at time of diagnosis in augmented and nonaugmented women are… Expand
The Effect of Silicone Implants on the Diagnosis, Prognosis, and Treatment of Breast Cancer
  • N. Handel
  • Medicine
  • Plastic and reconstructive surgery
  • 2007
TLDR
Despite the diminished sensitivity of mammography in women with implants, augmented and nonaugmented patients are diagnosed at a similar stage of disease and have a comparable prognosis. Expand
Breast Implants and Breast Cancer: A Review of Incidence, Detection, Mortality, and Survival
  • D. Deapen
  • Medicine
  • Plastic and reconstructive surgery
  • 2007
TLDR
It is shown that breast implants are not associated with an increased risk of breast cancer incidence or death, and these patients do not experience delayed detection or poorer post–breast cancer survival. Expand
Current Trends in the Oncologic and Surgical Managements of Breast Cancer in Women with Implants: Incidence, Diagnosis, and Treatment.
TLDR
An update of the more recent oncologic and surgical strategies, aiming to support plastic and general surgeons in such challenging aspects of breast cancer management in augmented women is presented. Expand
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 influence of cosmetic breast augmentation on the stage distribution and prognosis of women subsequently diagnosed with breast cancer
TLDR
It is suggested that breast implants delay the detection of breast cancer, but there was no statistically significant difference in survival between the breast implant and other plastic surgery groups. 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
Do Breast Implants Adversely Affect Prognosis among Those Subsequently Diagnosed with Breast Cancer? Findings from an Extended Follow-Up of a Canadian Cohort
TLDR
At diagnosis, breast cancers tended to be at more advanced stages among women with cosmetic breast implants, and breast cancer-specific survival was lower in these women although the reduction did not reach statistical significance. Expand
The Effect of Breast Implants on Mammogram Outcomes
TLDR
Because implants did not significantly affect mammogram results, women with implants should be reassured that mammography remains useful in detecting cancer, but future research is required to determine whether lower call back rates and longer time to resolution of imaging findings contribute to delays in diagnosis in patients with implants. Expand
Breast cancer detection and survival among women with cosmetic breast implants: systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies
TLDR
It is suggested that cosmetic breast augmentation adversely affects the survival of women who are subsequently diagnosed as having breast cancer, and some studies included in the meta-analysis on survival should be interpreted with caution. Expand
Cancer incidence, mortality, breast cancer detection and survival among Canadian women with bilateral cosmetic breast augmentation
TLDR
Cosmetic breast implants are associated with health risks that need to be acknowledged and further investigations are needed for clarifying the cancer risk associated with polyurethane implants and for pursuing investigations on breast cancer diagnosis and prognosis. Expand

AbstractObjective:Although clinical reports have raised concern that breast implants may either increase the risk of breast cancer or delay its diagnosis, epidemiologic studies have generally shownExpand

TLDR
Although there have been significant improvements in the ability to diagnose early breast cancer over the past two decades, mammography continues to be suboptimal in augmented women. Expand
Breast Augmentation: Cancer Concerns and Mammography—A Literature Review
TLDR
After a critical review of the literature, several conclusions can be drawn that augmented patients are not at a greater risk than the nonaugmented population for developing breast cancer and early detection of occult cancer is possible in augmented patients. Expand
Roentgenographic Evaluation of the Augmented Breast
TLDR
Results suggest that the sensitivity of mammography in detecting breast cancer is decreased when implants are present, and the effects of prostheses on mammographic findings are needed. Expand
Breast cancer in women after augmentation mammoplasty.
TLDR
Augmentation mammoplasty with sillicone-gel-filled implants reduces the ability of mammography, the best diagnostic tool, to visualize breast parenchyma, and augmented patients with breast cancer presented with more advanced disease, resulting in a worsened prognosis. Expand
Breast cancer after breast augmentation with silicone implants
TLDR
It is concluded that prepalpable and preinvasive breast cancer can be detected in the PAM patient by mammography and that the stage of presentation in this group is not significantly different than in nonaugmented patients. Expand
Breast Implants and Cancer: Causation, Delayed Detection, and Survival
TLDR
This analysis suggests that breast implants may confer a protective effect against breast cancer, and women with implants should be reassured by the consistency of scientific studies which have uniformly determined that they are not at increased risk for cancer. 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
