Is it just me, or is this bizarre?

NEW YORK — Breast implant-linked lymphoma can be controlled by removing the implant and the surrounding tissue, researchers say.

The industry-funded study by the Rand Corp. is based on a review of 29 cases of a rare form of immune-system cancer in breast-implant patients and input from a panel of experts.

While the aesthetic devices have been linked to the lymphoma for more than a decade, there is still no evidence to prove the disease is caused by the implant, researchers also said in the study published online Tuesday by the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
