There are options using traditional medicine that actually work without using modern medicine's radiation, drugs & removal of body parts.
It would be a decision by the breast cancer patient doctor 2nd
No! I think quality of life and self esteem are the most important things in life, the loss of which are the greatest psychological complications of mastectomy. I would choose death. I've been told for years by the doctor that I am in the high risk category, and I would not consider such a thing. I cannot fathom what is going on in the minds of women who would consider a proactive, elective mastectomy.
Each lady is different. Options , advice are need to know....ultimately a persnal decision. God bless!
It is a good option in the case of women who know, based in genetic tests that proved they carry genes related to breast cancer like BRCA1 and BRCA2. It has been demonstrated that women that carry these genes have a very high probability to develop breast cancer. I think that in case of women who don't carry these genes, it is more plausible to explore other options. But, after all, this is a very very personal decision.
Here we go again telling people what they can and cant do with their own bodies. Hey people it's not our business what others do with their bodies, it's a decision they half to live with so they need to make it.
This personal. Decision is yours. and. That. Of. Your spouse. Pray about it and. Seek God,s guidance.
I do not feel this should be a decision made by lay people. Only a doctor that is educated in this field should be able to address this.
Every story is different, but at my age, 56 I had by my own choice both breasts removed and I am soooo happy I did. I feel much more at peace and I am enjoying a life without bras!
Its hard to really say untill faced this this nightmare, it would depend case by case.
