Lady Picture

FACT

Decades of research has PROVEN that most women are cured of breast cancer without needing a mastectomy.

A simple lumpectomy and radiation has the SAME or BETTER cure rate than a mastectomy.

Mastectomy is a MAJOR surgery with higher RISK of MORE side effects compared to lumpectomy.

Mastectomy even with reconstruction results in WORSE cosmetic outcomes than lumpectomy.

 

FICTION

I will live longer if I get a mastectomy.

Breast cancer is in my family so I need a mastectomy.

If I get a mastectomy I will definitely not need radiation.

I have positive lymph nodes so I need a mastectomy.

After mastectomy I have no breast so my cancer cannot come back in that area.

Radiation will make me bald and/or I will be radioactive.
