Possible Links to Lymphoma for Breast Implant Patients

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 15-Mar-2011

Recent studies now show a possible link between breast implant patients and lymphoma, reports say.

According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, a type of lymphoma called anaplastic large cell lymphoma has appeared on at least 60 women with breast implants. This rare cancer reportedly is more likely in silicone implants than those filled with saline.

Silicone breast implants had been off the market since 1992 due to concerns they could cause health problems. But the implants were allowed back on the market in 2006. But now there may be renewed calls for permanent bans from the ALCL which has been reported among women with breast implants, reports say.

Some believe the silicone leaks into body and bloodstream. But the FDA believes breast implant occurs in the scar tissue that surrounds the implant, and they recommend that health care professionals pay close attention to breast implants and contact their doctor if they notice any changes.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
