This doctor has been successfully curing cancer for many years. I hope this video will help someone before they get to the extreme procedures devastating their health and body.

It's a personal decision made by looking at all the circumstances. There is no one size fits all answer to double mastectomy. Those who make the difficult decision should be supported as fully as anyone else.

If after genetic testing you find you carry the BRCA gene then yes have both breasts removed.

I think it should be offered to women who have breast cancer already or have had it in the past. I know a woman right now who is fighting breast cancer again after 20 years of having her first breast removed. It would have saved her having this episode. It should, however, be the personal choice of the individual (men get it too) and with proper counseling and complete information on the chances of it's return.

Having an experience with a different cancer my husband had, if we had listened to the "doctors", he would have lived for about a year & a half... although he did pass away, he had a good life for 6 more years.
I feel "doctors" would try to convince patients to do the extreme. No thank you for me...

I had a wonderful doctor and i thank god for her, I didn't have no knots or nothing I would never had know if it hadn't been for the tests till it was to late.

I am braca 1 positive. That means my cancer was 87% going to come back. I had both breast removed a year ago and my cancer had already returned. Having them off more than likely saved my life. I had people try to talk me out of it. I think it is a personal decision. Best decision of my life.

I am predisposed for cancer. I have thought this option through rigorously after the discovery of a mass in my right breast, but I'm more likely to figure out I have breast cancer early because I can check myself. If I remove my breasts and the cancer finds another place to form I'm less likely to combat it through early detection methods. I'll keep my at risk breasts and save the choice for a full mastectomy if it becomes necessary.

As someone who had a mastectomy and now has stage 4 cancer... I would never suggest preventative mastectomies. For one thing, the surgery is a serious surgery... especially with reconstruction and not a lot of fun. Also, cancer can show up in your lymph nodes and on your chest wall even after you have had a mastectomy. It is absolutely no guarantee that you still won't get breast cancer. You can be very pro-active without going to the extreme of a preventative mastectomy. BTW 35% of all...

Ask you doctor if you have dense breasts... and if you do, ask for other screening options.
