The HSE would like everyone to be aware of the signs and symptoms of a rare condition called Breast Implant Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL).
BIA-ALCL has been diagnosed in a small number of women worldwide and, although rare, is mostly associated with highly textured implants: in particular the Allergan BIOCELL textured implant. This implant has not been used in Ireland since December 2018.
What to do:
It is always good advice to be breast aware. This means checking your breasts from time to time, and knowing what is normal for you so that if any unusual changes occur, you will recognise them. For more information on checking your breasts, please see
