What is your opinion on getting a Preventative Mastectomy with no Breast Cancer Diagnosis?
Being that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I heard about this procedure on the radio - as a man and unable to understand all the emotions behind it, I wanted to hear from others and learn more.
It sounds very courageous in my opinion!
My guess is you won't see many men lining up to have a similar surgery to prevent getting testicular cancer. :-)
Maybe I may not be the best woman to answer this because breast cancer doesn't run in my family, so I don't carry the gene. However, I'm about to have a length of my colon removed without a diagnose of colon cancer. Colon cancer does run in my family; my mother, grandmother, and uncle all died of it. My surgery would be considered preventative, I guess, but it does cause pain, and it could become cancerous. So I guess I would say I would be for having breasts removed if I were having the same fears with the breast cancer gene.
