Having Had A Mastectomy

Evaluating Risk Factors: Mastectomy / Breast Removal

Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as having had a mastectomy — that affect you.   Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • see your health summarized and in detail
  • let The Analyst™ find what's wrong
  • have a doctor review your case (optional)
If you indicate having undergone surgery in the past, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Have you had a Mastectomy, a procedure in which tissue is removed from one or both breasts in order to prevent or treat Breast Cancer?
Possible responses:
→ Don't know
→ No
→ Yes, a unilateral mastectomy (one breast removed)
→ Yes, a bilateral mastectomy (both breasts removed)

The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate not having undergone a mastectomy, having had a unilateral mastectomy or having had a bilateral mastectomy, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to rule out issues such as Breast Cancer.  Although a mastectomy does drastically reduce the occurrence of breast cancer, even the most experienced breast surgeon cannot remove all breast tissue and therefore a small risk of developing breast cancer remains.
