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.
