(NBC NEWS) — Federal health officials want breast implants to have stronger warnings.
The FDA released draft guidance saying they want manufacturers to add the strongest form of warning, a boxed warning, to their devices.
It would list all possible complications including rare cancers and that the risk for developing complications increases the longer a woman has the implant.
The agency also wants patients to review a “decision checklist” with their doctors which would outline the potential risks.
The FDA will take public comment on the guidelines before finalizing them.
