Another 'Oops, We Forgot To Tell You This'

Another little bitty oopsie. Many women after a mastectomy for breast cancer get implants to make them more even again. Then there are the hundreds of thousands of women who seek implants to enhance their bodies. And then comes the oopsie.

There is a rare cancer which is caused by implants.

"The American Society of Plastic Surgeons says around 550,000 women last year received breast implants, but the FDA published a report this year linking a rare cancer to the implants.

So far, there have been 359 reported cases globally, including nine deaths.

The risk is low, but one in 30,000 women with implants could develop it,..."

Nice! Oops!

I am sure there are other potential side effects from breast implants but cancer isn't a fun one. Especially if you got implants after breast cancer - part of the cure caused a new cancer?

However the biggest part of the cure for the new cancer is to remove the implants. So have another surgery to fix the last surgery

Then there is a woman in Montana whose insurance company won't pay for the removal of her implants even though they caused her cancer. The company claims they are cosmetic - which they were originally - so they won't cover their removal. 

This woman, Kimra Rogers, is fighting her insurance company to cover the removal of her implants. And she is also fighting to raise awareness for this type of cancer because she was told that the implants were 100% safe.

Oops, again. 

While we might dislike the long list of potential side effects that accompany everything but this is one case where they made a tiny oops.
