I understand the importance of risk-reducing surgery in the context of breast cancer prevention. For individuals with a high risk of developing breast cancer due to genetic mutations like BRCA1 or BRCA2, or strong family history, risk-reducing surgery can be a proactive approach to minimize the likelihood of cancer occurrence. One option is prophylactic mastectomy, where both breasts are surgically removed to significantly reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. Additionally, risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy involves removing the ovaries and fallopian tubes, which not only lowers the risk of breast cancer but also reduces the risk of ovarian cancer. These procedures require careful consideration and discussion of individual risk factors, personal preferences, and potential benefits and risks. As the expert in breast surgery, I provide comprehensive support and guidance to individuals considering risk-reducing surgery, ensuring they make informed decisions aligned with their health goals and needs.
