Breast Cancer Recurrence after Reconstruction
There is no research that indicates that breast reconstruction increases the risk of recurrence, or that it will
prevent detection of future cancer in the breast. An implant may alter the dynamics of self-exams and mammograms,
but both can still be successfully accomplished. There are many considerations when deciding whether or not to have
reconstruction, but the risk of recurrence is not one of them.
