Cancer Lawsuit Filed Over Allergan McGhan Breast Implants

A Tennessee woman has filed a product liability lawsuit that indicates Allergan McGhan breast implants caused cancer to develop in the tissue surrounding implant, known as breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL).  

The complaint (PDF) was filed by Kimberly Matthews last month in the Superior Court of New Jersey, naming Allergan and Inamed Corporation as defendants.

According to the lawsuit, Matthews was implanted with McGhan Style 468 Saline-Filled breast implants in 2004 as part of breast augmentation surgery. In October 2017, she noticed her inguinal lymph nodes were enlarged, and the next month a PET scan indicated she had hypermetabolic activity within a left anterior chest wall mass.

Breast Implant Lawsuits

Women may face a risk of Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL) from certain breast implants.

Learn More About this Lawsuit SEE IF YOU QUALIFY FOR COMPENSATION

In December 2017, Matthews was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer that develops in the tissue surrounding certain types of implants. BIA-ALCL is a form of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, and a growing body of research suggests that certain large surface area, textured implants may increase the risk.

As a result of the breast implant cancer, Matthews had to undergo a procedure to shrink the tumor, which had infiltrated her chest wall and left ribs, before the implant could be removed in July 2018. She underwent five weeks of radiation therapy to get rid of the rest of the tumor, the lawsuit indicates.

“At the time the McGhan implants were placed into Kimberly Mathews’s body, she was not advised, nor did she have any independent knowledge, that the Products were anything other than safe, life-long products. Nor was she advised that the product was associated and/or known to cause BIA-ALCL and that she would require future surgery and treatments,” the lawsuit states. “Had Kimberly Mathews been advised that implantation was associated with even the slightest risk of developing ALCL and/or BIA-ALCL she would not have proceeded with implantation of the Products.”

Breast Implant Cancer Warnings

On January 26, 2011 the FDA first released a report about case studies and epidemiological research that suggested there was a link between breast implants and ALCL.

The agency then issued a statement about emerging information on the breast implant lymphoma problems last year, and a number of subsequent studies have confirmed that the breast implant ALCL cancer risk is real.

In June 2017, a study published in the medical journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery suggested that certain textured breast implants may increase the risk of anaplastic large cell lymphoma anywhere from 10 to 14 times, when compared to smooth breast implants.

In October 2017, a study published in the medical journal JAMA Surgery warned that many breast implant cancer cases worldwide have likely not been reported, and noted that doctors and patients may not be aware of BIA-ALCL.

In March 2018, the FDA indicated that it was aware of more than 400 cases of breast implant-related cancer. As more information becomes public about the breast implant cancer cases, experts have warned that the number of cases reported will likely increase significantly.

As regulators and researchers worldwide continue to evaluate the specific cause of the breast implant lymphoma problems, other women are also raising serious questions about why certain products appear to be more likely to be associated with the development of cancer, and how manufacturers failed to address potential design defects earlier.

Product liability lawyers in the U.S. are now reviewing other potential breast implant cancer lawsuits against Allergan and other manufacturers, for women diagnosed with the ALCL in recent years.

What are my options? Thank you Shanon Davis

    I had Saline breast implants in 1980 and 10 years ago both implants have leaked totally out. I do not have financial resources to have them removed and replaced. I was never told they would rupture. Can insurance help resolve this issue.

I have a lot number and category number, but no style number. I am having surgery to remove and replace my McGhan saline implants tomorrow. Both of my breasts have been rock hard and painful for quite awhile. I decided to get them replaced when I developed a mysterious rash. Hard red bumps blisters and bruises covered my arms, the back of my name, and the hairline area of my face. I saw two general doctors and two dermatologists before I received a diagnosis - Prurigo Nodularis. There is currently no cure, but studies are being conducted. I was going to participate in the study, but decided to wait until my implants were removed, to see if the rash improved on it's own after surgery. The rash first appeared at the same time I began to notice one of my breasts 'deflating'. The change was rapid and obvious. I needed to receive two iron infusions this summer, for extreme fatigue. My weight was fluctuating within a period of days from 5-10 lbs. (My normal weight is around 125). I've been experiencing frequent pounding headaches and higher than ever blood pressure (my doctor had to add a second medication). My focus and short term memory have declined noticeably in the last 6 months or so. (For which I also had to have a second medication prescribed). I am a preschool teacher, so this is not a good thing. I've also been experiencing nerve issues in my hands and feet. Up until 2 years ago, I was running every day, lifting weights, and swimming. I just recently started walking again, after a long period of inactivity due to all of these health issues. I want to feel and look normal again.

We all know the truth.they all know the truth too. So why can't our legal system do what its there for while we are still here. Why are they not marching into the federal court and giving the evidence and demanding justice and stop allowing innocent people and children to be Guinie pigs for trade . This is our world we should take care of it and everyone in it.the ones who don't like it can take a flight to another planet where they BELONG. This is not a joke.this is life and each one matters. And this has been wrong for too long. Nobody should die they know whats wrong and yet they are not doing what they know is right. ENOUGH. What good is being a dr if you know how but can't save lives. I'm so upset and I'm sure the lord is not going to forgive the ones who do know what they do. I am suffering too. 1993 polyurethane foam coated mc ghan 168 and most of my life disfigured ill and 9mm nodal in one side 5 mm in the other and sick for so long I don't know what it is like not to be. Ringing so loud i fear loosing my mind. Vision so bad I see double and faces 6 feet away are too blurry to make out. Pain and heart panic attacks .depression and mind fog 5 min after I leave I have to go back to see if I shut the door and here is my favorite my hands shake so bad some days I can eat without dropping or spilling. This is ALL FROM WHAT THEY SWORE WERE SAFE AND ONLY SALT WATER. MY BIGGEST FIGHT IS FOR MY SON. WHO I WAS BLESSED WITH IN 94 THE POLYURTHANE FOAM LEAKED THROUGH A DESTROYED HIS LIFE..I WILL FIGHT FOR H I M WITH ALL THE GOOD LORD WILL ALLOW ME TOO. THE LAWS ARE NOTHING IF THE COURTS ALLOW THESE CRIMES TO GO UNJUST. SO IF WE HAVE COURTS AND HOSPITALS LETS GET BACK TO JUSTICE AND SAVING LIVES.

You don't qualify for that your implants are 15 years old. I was like, ummm...I had my right one replaced in 2018 and there is something wrong. What did the Dr say I had? So I talked to the nurse and she confirmed that's what the Dr said but they won't do it. I don't know what to do....sorry for the long rant but I'm lost. It's like should I go back to the Dr who put the last one in or do I go somewhere else or just get them taken out all together? Please someone help me. This sucks!

From what I have found doctors were notified of the link from these to BIA-ALCL in Jan of 2011. I was never told of this either. I did go in to the same surgeon in July of 2011 to get replacement implants, just get them bigger. Still no mention from the doctor of link to cancer or any risks. As a matter of fact he said, these last forever. He replaced them with Mentor smooth round. Have to be lying again when they say now that the capsule was removed in 2011 before the Mentor were put in. There had to have been pain and soreness after that surgery if scraping was actually done to remove capsule, debris, fluid, scar tissue on rib cage etc. I did not have any pain or discomfort what so ever after that 2nd surgery. Proof that he did put the Mentor implants over cancerous cells in old capsule, scar tissue, fluid, rib cage etc... And now in 2020 after 21 years of toxic implants inside me, regardless of the brand and the fact that McGhan (bought out by Allergan, which now has been bought out by AbbVie) were inside me for 12 years!!! Here I am after all these years of wondering what is wrong with me. Literally hundreds of symptoms and doctors thinking it's all in my head. Now my lymph nodes are swollen and extreme bone pain, not to mention all the symptoms of Breast Implant Illness that you all have mentioned above. Tomorrow I start my journey to health and healing hopefully.. as I just realized this week after 21 years that it is the implants causing all of this poor health that no doctor could figure out or diagnose for sure. It's absolutely terrible to not be believed and to now know that these poison bags have been slowly killing me all these years! I have to be tested for BIA-ALCL this week. I have decided I am not going back to the original surgeon as he and his staff are lying to cover their own*** I will got to a surgeon who is on the preferred surgeon's list who specialize in these cases that need explant due to BII and BIA-ALCL. Making sure to do the complete capsulectomy en bloc procedure. Taking pictures of all that is done and what the implants and capsule looks like. Sending the capsule, fluid and scar tissues to the pathologist for further diagnosis and testing for CD30 (which has to be done to find the cells of ALCL..Anaplasic Large Cell Lymphoma). I pray to God I don't have cancer but if I do, I am going to fight it for my son, he needs me. He lost his father to cancer July 31, 2006 and here it is the week of the anniversary of his passing and I am now fighting for my life.

Also seems like I'm aging super fast all of a sudden. Many of these had a gradual onset, while others I'm trying to figure out if they were there prior to implants since I have had deviated septum and migraines throughout childhood which can lead to puffiness, sinus issues etc. . However, I'm 4.5 months sober and it seems as though i'm feeling worse instead of better since i'm no longer masking how shitty I feel. Also, when I work out, I am DRAINED afterwards. I was unaware of any recall of McGhan style 68 smooth round saline. Does anyone have a source for this recall - I can't find anything!

    Does anyone know if McGahn 68 implants have been recalled? I have some BII symptoms such as brain for and joint and muscle pain which gets worse every day. I am Wondering if this could have anything to do with it. Also have had blood work with positive results for ANA.

    I had my McGhan implants done in 1999 and was diagnosed with stage 1 inductal carcinoma triple negative breast cancer in June of 2017 No family history, lead an extremely healthy lifestyle. They convinced me not to take them out and I am deeply regretting that decision.

    I had McGhan saline implants put in August 2006 and in March 2015 I was diagnosed with stage 3 inductal carcinoma triple negative breast cancer. I have no family history and this is not a hormone related cancer. I swear it is due to these implants. I was 41 at the time and otherwise healthy.

    I have Allergan implants and I am very worried now that I have heard about cancer causing problems with them. My right breast has been swollen and painful for months. I am really worried also because there are small nodules in my right lung. I am very concerned what do I need to do.

    I developed CANCER around IMPLANT capsule with Meghan SALINE filled IMPLANT. The pathology report stated adenocarcinoma. Could this be related to implant?

    I had.my first implants in 1979. They ruptured in 1999. I had new implants put in 2000. I have been horribly sick since having implants. I have been diagnosed with Lupus, Mixed Connective Tissue Disease and Fibromyalgia. I have had 17 joint surgeries. It has caused me to not be able to work and so much money. I am looking at having explant. I was never told about all these problems.
