Clinical Awareness Raising Campaign - BIA-ALCL - Sector Stakeholders

Posted: 10th of December, 2020

In early 2021, Safer Care Victoria will be conducting a public awareness campaign for breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), a rare form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

The goals of the campaign are to: 

  • inform patients of their risk of BIA-ALCL 
  • outline pathways for seeking clinical advice.

The campaign may result in people who have breast implants seeking medical advice. The fact sheet attached outlines details of the symptoms and risk of BIA-ALCL as well as offering advice for supporting people who may present for review and treatment.
