Preventive mastectomy

Preventive mastectomy is a surgery focused on removing one or both breasts to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer.

According to the National Cancer Institute, preventive mastectomy in women with BRCA-1 and BRCA-2 mutations can reduce the risk of developing breast cancer by 95%. In women with a strong family history of breast cancer, preventive mastectomy can reduce the risk of developing breast cancer by 90%.
