Surgical implantation of breast prostheses has become increasingly popular while the incidence of breast cancer is increasing each year. There has been no definitive consensus regarding the casual relationship between augmentation mammoplasty and breast cancer incidence, detection, treatment, mortality and survival. This review summarizes the published evidence, including epidemiological studies and case reports. All studies examined state that there is no breast cancer risk in prior augmented women. Moreover, there is also no significant difference in frequency, stage or mean tumor size between augmented and non-augmented women.
