Dispute Over Cancer Tied to Implants
New York Times

When talking to patients about a rare type of cancer linked to breast implants, plastic surgeons should call it “a condition” and avoid using the words cancer, tumor, disease or malignancy, the president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons advised members during an online seminar on Feb. 3.

The comments, by Dr. Phil Haeck, the society president, were made public on Thursday by Public Citizen’s Health Research Group, an advocacy group in Washington.
