A shocking new study found a link between fake butts and very deadly and rare form of cancer..
A new study from the University of Southern California linked a deadly form of cancer to woman who received butt implants.
A woman with buttock implants was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer that, until now, has largely been linked to breast implants, according to a new report of the woman's case.
The case marks the first time that this cancer — called anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) — has been tied to buttock implants, the report authors said.
The Food and Drug Administration is now officially reporting that certain butts implant can cause the blood cancer. The FDA already made the link between breast implants and nearly 500 women in the U.S. diagnosed with the deadly cancer.
Now they made the first ever link to butt implants.
A 49-year-old woman received gluteal (butt) textured implants about one year before she was diagnosed with cancer. Doctors observed that she had an ulceration on the skin around her implants, and imaging tests revealed fluid around the implants.
The woman's "case helps to demonstrate that many textured implants could potentially be [a] risk [factor] for ALCL and that in general, the discussion should move from 'breast implant-associated cancer' to 'implant-associated [cancer],' to better encompass the full spectrum of disease," the authors wrote in the report, published Feb. 15 in Aesthetic Surgery Journal.
Unfortunately, the cancer spread to other parts of her body, including her lungs. A biopsy of a mass in her lung revealed "hallmark" cells of ALCL, the report said. Despite aggressive chemotherapy, the patient died several months later.
