BIA-ALCL

Maybe you’ve heard of Breast Implant Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma.  It’s getting more attention, and was even on the front page of the New York Times in May.  I was at the annual meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons last month and got the latest on this rare cancer associated with certain textured breast implants.  I put a page on my website which highlights what is currently known about BIA-ALCL.  Should you be concerned?  Check out the page (with links to additional resources) here.
