    Makes sense. It's a foreign object in the body and the immune system probably wants to fight it.

    1 in 1000, and not sure if that number also has women who will get cancer regardless of implants. The lifetime risk of breast cancer is quite scary at 1 of 8 women naturally.

    I think it's a number game and a chance of probabilities. Like never smoke, one cigarette a day smoker versus a 2 pack a day. All have a chance, but the chances are higher with 2 pack but you never know... The never smoke could get it first just by bad luck and air pollution.

    I think it depends on the patient.

    I've had several occupations in my life where I was exposed to carcinogenic material and I am still cancer free.

    My dad has dealt with carcinogenic material for his whole professional career (50 years)……...No cancer.

    This is a question only a doctor can answer....

    Ah this is like the full circle of military life, the adventure, the danger, the Jodie

    I guess this is not all new info. I have read that textured silicone has a higher cancer risk compared to smooth silicone, all since I began my search for info on implants several years ago.

    I have heard this before and I do have silicone breast implants. It makes sense that implants could cause cancer. I try not to worry about it. I've already kicked cancer's ass before but in a below the belt region.
