Next medical animation of Women with breast implants are at risk of developing a rare type of cancer known as breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). BIA-ALCL typically occurs in the scar tissue capsule or fluid that surrounds the implant. In some cases. Lymphomas like BIA-ALCL begin in lymphocytes. BIA-ALCL causes certain lymphocytes—known as T-cells—to mutate and grow out of control. BIA-ALCL is not considered to be a breast cancer, but a lymphoma.

Many models and diagrams show the cell surface as stiff and unmovable barrier between cells and the outside. But imagine cell membranes are an extremely thin fluid layer of a fatty substance (lipids), which forms a barrier for water soluble molecules. In addition the membrane contains proteins, which move within the fluid all the time, transporting material across the membrane or relaying signals. In our visualisation we try to give you a glimpse of the dynamics on the cell surface.
