Uneven Breast due to scoliosis


I have a significant difference in my breast due to scoliosis and I want to have a breast augmentation to correct the size. How likely is it that it will increase my chances of breast cancer especially if there is no family history of it at all?

Dear Cat72:  There is no evidence that breast augmentation increases the risk of breast cancer.  Augmentation can make mammography more difficult.  In other words, it can make the screening process more difficult.
