FDA sees possible cancer risk with breast implants
USA Today

Federal health officials said Wednesday they are investigating a possible link between breast implants and a very rare form of cancer after reviewing a handful of cases reported over the last 13 years. The cancer, known as anaplastic large cell lymphoma, attacks lymph nodes and skin and has been reported in the scar tissue which grows around an implant. The Food and Drug Administration is asking doctors to report all cases of the cancer so the agency can better understand the association.
