Considering prophylactic mastectomy
Here's my history:
November 2018: ADH confirmed via biopsy. ALH discovered in same breast during excision. In the last two years, I have had three more biopsies (thankfully, all benign), the most recent last week for clustered microcalcifications in the other breast. Started low-dose Tamoxifen in October 2021. Had complete hysterectomy in January 2022 due to skyrocketing CA125 and a mass on one ovary. No gene mutations found. My lifetime risk prior to this last biopsy was 64%.
Mentally, my husband and I are exhausted. Two breast biopsies and the ovarian cancer scare seven months has worn us out. We can't keep living like this.
For those who have had a prophylactic mastectomy, how did you finally come to that decision? Thanks!
