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.
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?
→ Don't know
→ 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.
