That should be the womans choice.
That is a personal decision, as is any decision when it concerns cancer. My husband just passed away from lung cancer and i didnt understand y he did chemo when it was not goin to cure him it made him so sick the last weeks of his life. But it was his choice.
Life should be protected! SO, that we can live it! Live it with quality! "Live" does not mean "to be alive". For a women is very important to feel beautiful to live her life! Thus, the answer, in my opinion, are frequent check up-s, not drastic procedures!
Having a double mastectomy to prevent cancer is a bit aggressive and premature. But then again, it is a personal decision. I just hope the individual who decides on this isn't driven by fear due to predisposition alone. Works best not to run contrary to wisdom.
Leave it up to the woman in question, we have breast cancer in our family two of my sisters contacted it sadly one didn't survive the other through early detection is fine after 20 years.I have 5 other sisters and we get checked every year even though we are now in our 60's & 70's the fight must go on.
Look Gc MAF Therapy first ,,,,, its worth reading about ,,, might not have to destroy your body.
Thirty years ago I joined a breast cancer trial at a cancer hospital in London. For 7 years I took a tablet every day. It turned out it was Tamoxifen, not the placebo. I have recently heard that tamoxifen greatly reduces breast cancer for women with a family history (7 aunts and my sister). I am absolutely thrilled to have been part of this trial now that the results have been shown to prevent it. Needless to say I do not have breast cancer.
If by having it done you can continue living like before I believe the right decision was made. Of course it is a decision that would need to be talked about with your Family members and of course your doctor, "BUT" if anyone decides to have this done I believe they know they are making the right decision.
Even with breasts removed, you are not guaranteed the cancer would not develop in other tissues...enjoy your breasts until is not possible...prevention is wise, not to put the band before the wound.
Agree with Kathy and Pat - Just survived breast-cancer.
