To examine the risk of incident breast cancer in women with rheumatoid arthritis (Ra), and the risk of Ra in women with a history of breast cancer, taking antihormonal treatment for breast cancer into account.

The cosmetic use of devices like prostheses to increase breast volume is nothing new. I
A 32-year-old female patient with a typical chest structure and no history of surgical procedure presented to our clinic for the correction of the mammary glands involution and ptosis after cessation of breast-feeding. Her menses were regular. She was primipara and had engaged in breastfeeding for 9 months, until 2006.
A growing number of studies have investigated the malignancy risk associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and our review will focus mainly (though not exclusively) on studies published in the past year.
Breast implant–associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a CD30+, ALK−, T-cell– derived lymphoma within the nation-Hodgkin.lymphoma group. To date, all patients with breast implant-associated ALCL have had prolonged exposure to textured implants.
Silicone breast implants (SBI) may induce systemic autoimmune disease as part of autoimmune syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA). This syndrome bears similarities to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). We sought to determine whether there are any associations between SBI and depression, fibromyalgia and CFS in a rheumatology clinic population.

Several epidemiological studies have investigated the link between silicone breast implants (SBIs) and autoimmune/rheumatic disorders, reporting inconsistent results. We aimed to evaluate the association between SBIs and the most clinically relevant autoimmune/rheumatic disorders using a large, population-based database.
No association between the risk of breast cancer and systemic lupus
erythematosus: evidence from a meta-analysis
Despite changes in the principal constituents of the silicone implants during the past 50 years, silicone remained an adjuvant that may ’bleed’ and subsequently may be a chronic stimulus to the immune system resulting in similar clinical manifestations as 50 years ago. Silicones are spread throughout the body and
can be detected in tissues and the central nervous system. Autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome by adjuvants (ASIA), allergies, autoimmune diseases, immune deficiencies and lymphomas occur in patients with SBIs. There is a need for adequately adjusted epidemiological studies to ascertain the frequency of these diseases. Explantation of the breast implants, however, should be advised to patients with complaints,
as 60–80% of patients show an amelioration of the signs and symptoms after explantation.
