Silicone breast can cause dangerous diseases in women, scientists warn
A new study by scientists from the University of Texas suggests that silicone breast implants can increase the risk of arthritis, stillbirth and even skin cancer.
Experts found that women have 4.5 times higher risk of stillbirth and have 4 times higher risk of developing melanoma after the establishment of the silicone implants.
In addition, women are also more likely to suffer from surgical complications and the appearance of scarring around the implant compared with women who used implants filled with saline.
Silicone implants are filled with a plastic gel, while saline implants are a silicone shell filled with sterile saline. Both types of implants are approved by doctors for breast reconstruction in women of all ages.

During testing, the experts considered about 100,000 women. About 80,000 of them had silicone implants, while others had implants filled with saline. It was found that women with silicone implants had a higher risk of several rare adverse outcomes.
They included rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren’s syndrome (immune system disorder characterized by dry eyes and dry mouth) and scleroderma (chronic hardening of skin and connective tissues). All these diseases occurred in women at 6-8 times more often than in the General population.
Women with silicone implants are also 4.5 times more likely to suffer from stillbirths, not miscarriages. Also in women with silicone implants were 4 times higher risk of developing melanoma.
Silicone implants have also been associated with a higher risk of surgical complications compared with the use of implants with physiological solutions.
About 5% of women with silicone implants had scarring around the implant, known as capsular contracture, compared to 2.8% of women with saline implants.
However, the study authors noted that, although certain risks are more common in women with silicone implants, the absolute performance of these adverse outcomes remains low.
