I believe that it is a very personal decision. I have not had to make a decision like that and pray for all those who will have to decide that they will know overwhelming peace.

I totally disagree with the way you have handled this. I go to my inbox and it's all about double mastectomies and breast cancer, with no explanation under the auspices of 'turn FB pink'.

Turning FB pink is very different to what comes below. I am unsubscribing due to this.

It's a personal decision. The women in this situation have undoubtedly covered all their options and educated themselves enough to know what they want to do.

I had my breast removed when u got the cancer diagnosis, only the one with cancer and sometimes I wonder if I should have removed both. The return of cancer is always at the back of my mind. I would never recommend my daughter having a mastectomy just because I had cancer.

A personal decision made by the individual! Twenty two yrs ago I had a left mastectomy! If I was given the option then - I would have done both!

I am a survivor and only had the one trying to kill me removed. My other one has been kind to me but between myself and my oncologist, we keep a close eye on her.

The answer to this is for the person who has Breast Cancer. No one else has the right to answer that question.My sister is a survivour of Breast cancer.

Only after careful consideration and if tests are conclusive then I would have to say yes, to prevent cancer from spreading.
