MAMMOGRAMS AND BREAST AUGMENTATION

Breast cancer is a major concern for every woman and everyone who cares for and about them. Dr. Brueck MD, Fort Myers plastic surgeon, comments on findings about breast cancer and breast implants.

A new study done at the University of Southern California reviewed the medical records of 5005 breast cancer patients.

They found that in 36% of women with breast implants, mammograms failed to reveal an existing abnormality.

What does this mean?

Women with implants should do self examinations, have a yearly examination by the doctor and perhaps, if indicated do an MRI to supplement the mammogram. Prevention is the word.
