Do doctors put implants in women with family history of breast cancer if they want it?

Do doctors put implants in women with family history of breast cancer if they want it?

Yes, but...: ...Not without the appropriate counseling of the pro's and con's. To wit: implants can interfere with the ability to perform the best test that we have for screening for breat cancer--mammograms. On the other hand, 85-90% of all breast cancers occur due to environmental factors rather than heredity, so many women have less of a family risk than they may realize. ...Read more
