SAN DIEGO — Tens of thousands of women have claimed their breast implants are making them sick. It’s a story News 8 has been closely covering for months and on Tuesday the Food and Drug Administration continued a public hearing on the subject of "breast implant illness.”

On Monday, government medical advisors said it’s too soon to ban a type of breast implant recently linked to a rare form of cancer, saying more information is needed, according to the Associated Press.

Dr. Tim Sayed spoke with Morning Extra about what was being discussed as the FDA meeting continued.
