Mass Recall of Breast Implants in Europe

Cancer alert for 50,000 British women with breast implants

Up to 50,000 British women have been advised to consider having cheap breast implants removed after evidence in France showed they could lead to cancer.

French medical authorities are expected this week to order 30,000 women who received faulty breast implants in France to have them removed.

The women are potentially at risk of developing cancer after receiving cheap implants using industrial silicone gel normally destined for the electronics industry instead of the more expensive medical silicone.

It is thought that as many as 50,000 British women may have them.

Official health advice on the subject in Britain remains unchanged, with the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency saying there was no firm evidence linking the implants to cancer. . .
