Texas Woman Fakes Breast Cancer for Breast Implants

Posted Nov 27 2009 12:00am 2 Comments

Aol Health features a story about Trista Lathern, a 24-year-old woman in Texas who claimed she had breast cancer.

At least $10,000 was raised to help Trista Lathern after she announced she was battling breast cancer. But investigators say it was all a scam and that she planned to use the money to get breast implants.

Lathern’s story came to the attention of police when she allegedly visited a plastic surgeon who became suspicious of her story and called his attorney, who contacted police, KXXV-TV reported.
She was arrested last week and charged with theft by deception, a state felony, the station said.

I think she picked the wrong State to pull this. They will convict her there. Have a nice time in D block lady! I wonder if the surgeon violated HIPAA?

Best Regards,

John Di Saia MD

Sucking the breasts as a foreplay cant cause Breast cancer. Only some pain may be noticed if they are sucking too hard causing a bruise or squeezing them too hard. Don't be worried if it's cancer. It is not. Breasts cancer only involves a lump but no pain. It's actually a good sign to have the pain cuz you know it's not cancer. Probably just a cyst thats not too serious.

Force Factor

Thanks! Very informative breast cancer article.
