&NA; In a population‐based case‐control study of breast cancer that included 2174 cases and 2009 population controls under 55 years of age, prior breast implants were reported by 36 cases versus 44 controls. After adjustment for the matching factors as well as variables associated with both breast cancer risk and breast enlargement (race, family history of breast cancer, body size, screening history), the relative risk of breast cancer associated with a prior implant was 0.6 (95% CI 0.4‐1.0… 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
Breast cancer following augmentation mammoplasty (United States)
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
Breast Cancer following Augmentation Mammaplasty: A Case-Control Study
TLDR
Palpable detection of breast cancer is more likely at a smaller size in augmented patients, yet it is less likely on screening mammography than in controls, yet both silicone and saline implants, whether placed submuscularly or subglandularly, have comparable effects on breast imaging, biopsy modality, and surgery. 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
Cancer risk among Danish women with cosmetic breast implants
TLDR
This study lends further support to the accumulating evidence that silicone breast implants are not carcinogenic, and explains the consistently reported deficit of breast cancer among women with breast implants, whereas increased exposure to sunlight may explain the excess occurrence of non‐melanoma skin cancer. Expand
Cancer risk at sites other than the breast following augmentation mammoplasty.
TLDR
Although excesses of cervical and vulvar cancer among implant patients might be attributable to lifestyle factors, reasons for excesses for respiratory and brain cancers were less apparent. Expand
A nationwide epidemiologic study of breast cancer incidence following breast reduction surgery in a large cohort of Swedish women
TLDR
Analyses by age at surgery, time since surgery or calendar year of surgery revealed similar reductions in risk, and further evidence that women undergoing breast reduction surgery have reduced breast cancer risk is offered. Expand
Cancer incidence in a cohort of Ontario and Quebec women having bilateral breast augmentation
TLDR
Women undergoing cosmetic breast augmentation do not appear to be at an increased long‐term risk of developing cancer, as compared to other plastic surgery patients. Expand
Long-term cancer risk among Swedish women with cosmetic breast implants: an update of a nationwide study.
TLDR
Stratification by duration of follow-up revealed no statistically significantly increased or decreased SIR, with the exception of a two- to threefold excess of lung cancer among women followed for more than 15 years, which would be expected due to the high prevalence of smoking among the Swedish women with implants in this study. 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

Breast cancer incidence subsequent to surgical reduction of the female breast.
TLDR
The incidence of breast cancer was determined in 1245 women who were treated surgically for breast hypertrophy in Copenhagen, Denmark, between 1943 and 1971 and the greatest risk reduction was observed ten or more years after the plastic surgery operation. 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
Augmentation Mammaplasty and Breast Cancer: A 5‐Year Update of the Los Angeles Study
TLDR
It is concluded that there is no increase in breast cancer incidence following augmentation mammaplasty following long-term carcinogenicity of breast implants in humans. Expand
Breast carcinoma post‐augmentation mammaplasty: Therapy with limited surgery and radiation
TLDR
A case of breast carcinoma occurring 5 years after augmentation mammaplasty performed with silicone‐gel‐filled implants is presented and the patient remains well 15 months postoperatively. Expand
Height and weight at various ages and risk of breast cancer.
TLDR
Evaluation of risk in relation to lifetime changes in body size and weight found Tallness, regardless of when achieved, was associated with an increased risk of breast cancer diagnosed at both young (< 50 years) and older ages. Expand
Mammary Gland Mass and Breast Cancer Risk
TLDR
Evidence indicates that early life events and conditions, possibly extending to the intrauterine stages of life, and including energy restriction in early life, affect the risk of breast cancer, and can explain certain epidemiologic findings that cannot be accounted for by more established breast cancer risk factors. 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
The effect of silicone‐gel–filled implants on mammography
TLDR
Most patients had some degree of parenchymal scarring and lower image quality after augmentation, and state‐of‐the‐art mammography was not possible in most patients whose breasts were augmented with silicone‐gel–filled implants. Expand
Mammography and breast implants.
TLDR
It was found that the percentage of glandular tissue obscured by the implant varied from 22 to 83 percent, which casts serious doubt on the reliability of routine film screen mammography in patients under 40. Expand
Current trends in contraception.
TLDR
The significant movement away from the pill among women under 35 suggests that the effect of adverse publicity on the pattern of contraceptive usage is considerable and more use of the media for health education and for more readily available and acceptable contraceptive advice for these younger women should be considered.
