Beschreibung:

This book presents the candid stories of women at high hereditary risk of breast cancer who chose to have their breasts surgically removed while they were still healthy, rather than risk getting the cancer that had, in many cases, devastated others in their family.
What would you do if a genetic test revealed a mutated gene that makes your lifetime risk of getting breast cancer 56 to 85 percent, and having your breasts removed would reduce that probability to around the general population risk of 11 percent? Do you take the risky gamble that you'll stay healthy, or opt for the mastectomy? What if you had a mother or sister who died of breast cancer? As the use of genetic testing in medicine increases, so does the number of women facing this dilemma.
