Services - Overview
Occasionally women decide to undergo a prophylactic mastectomy when they do not actually have a breast cancer diagnosis. This is usually performed when they have a very prominent breast cancer family history, are BRCA positive or have extremely fibrocystic, hard-to-follow breasts. This is often done after patients have spoken with an oncologist and assessed their risk of developing breast cancer with a breast cancer surgeon.
Prev: Immediate or delayed reconstruction
