UK women plan to sue over implants

Hundreds of British women are planning to take legal action amid fears their breast implants are linked to cancer.

A scandal erupted when it emerged the product manufactured by the now-defunct French company Poly Implant Prostheses (PIP) was made using cheap industrial silicone instead of medical-grade supplies.

At least 250 women in the UK intend to sue the six UK clinics at which they underwent surgery to be fitted with the PIP implants, according to the Guardian.

State authorities in France are expected to offer up to 30,000 women with these types of implant the opportunity to have them taken out.

But regulators in the UK insist there is no link with cancer and therefore no need for them to be removed.
