The Food and Drug Administration opened up that 350 women had been diagnosed of a cancer related disease [anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL)] owing to silicone breast. Out of the 350 women, 9 has been confirmed dead. ALCL cancer was initially suggested by the World Health Organization six years ago.
The evidence is enough for regulators to acknowledge a clear link between silicone breast implants and the blood cancer.

The FDA said: ‘All of the information to date suggests that women with breast implants have a very low but increased risk of developing ALCL compared to women who do not have breast implants
‘Most cases of breast implant-associated ALCL are treated by removal of the implant and the capsule surrounding the implant and some cases have been treated by chemotherapy and radiation.
The statement added: ‘As of February 1, 2017, the FDA has received a total of 359 medical device reports of breast-implant-associated ALCL, including nine deaths,’ it said.
‘Breast implants approved in the U.S. can be filled with either saline or with silicone gel. They come in different sizes and shapes and have either smooth or textured surfaces (shells).
‘There are 231 reports that included information on the implant surface. Of these, 203 were reported to be textured implants and 28 reported to be smooth implants.’
