In brief: No relationship
Silicon breast implants are inert and have no effect on ms, and vice versa, the ms has no effect on the breast implant either. Talk to a plastic surgeon regarding the implant, and, see a neurologist to keep control of ms.

In brief: Unknown.
This is a difficult number to come by for obvious reasons.
However, based on the best clinical studies available, there is no direct causation ( link) between ruptured silicone gel breast implants and multiple sclerosis.

I am not sure that this number can even be obtained but the major clinical studies evaluating breast implants have shown no relation between silicon implants and ms .
This is not to say that they do not occur together but only that no causation has been attributed to the presence of implants.

In brief: Unlikely
If a silicone implant was to leak, the silicone will stay within the capsule, and may cause some local deformities.
Ms is a neurological disease that originates centrally in the brain, and would not be caused by a ruptured silicone implant. http://www.dassmd.com/breast-augmentation/breast-augmentation-of-los-angeles.html.

In brief: No relation evident
Large studies do not demonstrate any relationship between leaking silicone breast implants and ms.
If there is a correlation, it is too small to measure.
