And she cannot understand why the Food and Drug Administration only now, 2 million altered women later, is requiring the manufacturers to prove their products safe.

The cancer, called "breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma," or BIA-ALCL, is not a form of breast cancerbut rather a lymphomawhich is a cancer of the immune system.

The FDA said that it also will investigate the safety of testicular implants, which are used for cosmetic purposes, and inflatable penile implants, used to treat impotence.
Women with breast implants are at increased risk of developing a rare type of cancer of the immune systembut the overall chance of getting this cancer from implants is very low, according to a new study from the Netherlands.
