There are numerous reports of women who have had breast implants developing anaplastic large cell lymphoma, a rare form of cancer. In March 2017, the FDA released a warning about the possible link between breast implants and anaplastic large cell lymphoma1.
Several lawsuits have already been filed in 2018 for women who have been diagnosed with this rare cancer which are allegedly a result of their breast implants. Breast implant manufacturers that are involved in these recent lawsuits include Allergan plc and Mentor Worldwide LLC. Unfortunately, there is a lack of awareness on this issue, and the public is at a health crisis. The medical community has failed to offer any kind of practical assistance to help women link their cancer symptoms to their breast implants. Many women have had misdiagnoses, unnecessary medications, expensive treatments, and removal of body parts (thyroid, uterus, gallbladder).
Breast implant lawsuits began in the 1980s and continue to this day. Breast implant manufacturers such as Allergan must be held accountable for their destructive medical devices. These companies owe compensation to the women whose anaplastic large cell lymphoma can be linked to their breast implants. There are over 50,000 women in breast plant illness Facebook support groups who are seeking help, and the professional lawyers at KBA Attorneys can help. Our experienced team of attorneys will work to hold the alleged companies accountable for their lack of information and toxicity caused by their breast implants.
