I believe eating toxic diets, living in toxic environments and having a weak immune system are the big reasons women come down with breast cancer in the first place.
Having any type of surgery should never be a first choice. There could be complications from any type of surgery, especially when you are put to sleep.
Mastectomy is surgery to remove all breast tissue from a breast as a way to treat or prevent breast cancer. For those with early-stage breast cancer, mastectomy may be one treatment option.
Breast-conserving surgery (lumpectomy), in which only the tumor is removed from the breast, may be another option but how great are genetic factors.
Genetic factors by themselves probably account for only a very small fraction of cancers. Less than 10% of cancer in humans is attributable to genetics.
Genetic factors do have an important influence on an individual’s chance of developing cancer when combined with outside factors (your diet, your environment, and your mmune system).
So if someone in a family ate the same toxic diet, lived in the same toxic environment and also had a weak immune system, then their chances of coming down with cancer would be greater.
Even those with genetic markers indicating a high probability for developing cancer, often do not get the disease.
