Breast Implants Can Hide Breast Cancer
Baroness Delyth Morgan, Chief Executive, Breast Cancer Campaign, said: “While breast implants can obscure breast tissue in x-rays, it is still possible to detect breast cancer in women with implants but mammograms might need to be taken at different angles to ensure the clearest possible results.
“Women should make their mammography team aware if they have implants and we would encourage all women, regardless of whether they have implants, to be breast aware. Checking your breasts regularly and knowing what is normal for you can be the best way of detecting breast cancer early.”
