Cosmetic breast augmentation has become increasingly popular

Women who have breast implants and go on to have breast cancer have a 38% higher risk of dying from the disease than women who do not have implants, a new study suggests. The study  also found that women with cosmetic breast implants had a 26% increased risk of being diagnosed at a later stage of cancer than women without implants.
