Would you remove both breasts if cancer was found in one?


If you were told you had to lose a breast to cancer, would you have them remove both to lessen the chances you would get it in the other one?

    Thank you for this information, it's things I hadn't thought about. Do you happen to know if they do reconstructive surgery and you start to lose weight will the new breast lose weight too?

    2 things to consider; 1 wouldn't it be a good preventative from getting cancer in the other breast anyway & 2 could constructive surgery be done well enough to make it like it was?

    I'm 45 and know I would have thought differently if I were younger too.
