saw a mention of the piece when I logged on to Yahoo today. i get the times delivered and will read it while waiting for my scans, etc today. Each person does what they feel is best for them. i am not sure that would have been my choice if i found out I was BRCA positive (which i am not) or that i would develop TNBC,, which i did 2.5 years ago. most women who get breast cancer do not have the mutation. I do know women who have had prophylactic mastectomies and ovariectomies because they have tested positive for the BRCA mutations.
I also know women who have be diagnosed with stage IV BC with no known primary. I wish there was more research and information on how effective doing this is. Major surgery is risky and the more we know about it's effectiveness the better our decisions can be.
