When is It Best to Have Bilateral Prophylactic Mastectomy?
My grandmother and mother were both diagnosed with breast cancer and passed away from it. I am a 22-year-old, healthy female who is considering a bilateral prophylactic mastectomy. My mom, who lost her battle to cancer in October, was only 40 when she was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. I want to have the procedure soon but I'm not sure if there is a suggested age. Please clarify this.
