Breast Implant-associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma

Breast implant-associated ALCL is a rare type of breast cancer (lymphoma) that develops near breast implants. There have only been 46 reported cases in Australia – with the risk being in the order of 1-in-1000 to 1-in-10000.  It usually occurs 3 – 15 years after the insertion of an implant. Dr Lancashire can discuss any concerns you might have about it.
