4:46 am
breast cancer is a terrifying diagnosis...and decades ago, removing the entire breast was the only answer? but then surgeons began to preserve normal breast areas by doing lumpectomies instead? now in a surprising new finding from researchers at the us agency for healthcare research and quality, the trend seems to be changing again. total mastectomies, complete removal of the breast - jumped by more than a third between 2005 and 2013. part of the reason for the increase was a doubling in the number of women opting for double mastectomies; having both breasts removed even if cancer is found only in one. actress angelina jolie made headlines when she had both her breasts removed, because she had a genetic mutation, which raises cancer risk. doctors suggest that some high-risk women prefer having the double surgery to the anxiety of having frequent mammograms and biopsies. survival rates are no different for women who have a mastectomy versus women who have a smaller lumpectomy.
4:47 am
mastectomies do, of course, reduce the chance of developing cancer in the other breast. obviously each woman needs to make a decision about what is best for her.
