@ terfs since ovaries n “female characteristics” are so important if a cis woman gets a total hysterectomy/mastectomy does she lose her Woman Card™ or do you just not enforce your rules if it doesn’t help demonize trans people 👀

More men with breast cancer removing unaffected breast

Washington, Sep 4 (IANS) The number of men with breast cancer who underwent surgery to remove the unaffected breast nearly doubled between 2004-2011, says a new study.


“Health care providers should be aware that the increase we have seen in removal of the unaffected breast is not limited to women,” said lead researcher Ahmedin Jemal, vice president of surveillance and health services research at the American Cancer Society.

Breast cancer in men is rare, accounting for only about one percent of all cases in the US.

In women (particularly younger women), the use of contralateral prophylactic mastectomy (CPM) surgery to remove the unaffected breast, has increased.

The percentage of women with invasive breast cancer in one breast undergoing the surgery increased from about 2.2 percent in 1998 to 11 percent in 2011, the study said.

This increase has occurred despite the lack of evidence for a survival benefit from treatment, along with associated costs and possible complications.

To explore whether the same increase was occurring among men, the researchers looked at treatment among 6,332 men who underwent surgery for breast cancer limited to one breast between 2004 and 2011.

The researchers found the rates of CPM among men nearly doubled between 2004 and 2011, from three percent to 5.6 percent.

“Doctors should carefully discuss with their male patients the benefits, harms, and costs of this surgery to help patients make informed decisions about their treatments,” Jemal noted.

The findings appeared in the journal JAMA Surgery.

Day 100: 🌾

Oh wow I can’t believe today is already my 100th day 😱 time sure goes by fast!!
Looking over all my post it’s crazy how so many things happened within a short amount of time. It’s only been 3 months and I didn’t realize how much stuff I did. Within these 100 days I’m finally at my last term of nursing school (please let me pass 🙏🏼), I traveled to Seattle, my mom’s mastectomy surgery went well ☝🏼️, went to a winery for the first time and many more. Looking back I can’t believe what a roller coaster ride I had.
It’s so nice looking back at all my post. I actually forgot some of the things I did. There’s a saying that says “it’s funny how day by day, nothing changes. But when you look back everything is different.” After doing this 100 days of happiness project I agree with it completely! Everyday I would think that my life is so dull and boring and everyday is just a repeat of the day before. But when I look back all these pictures I get flashbacks of what I was doing and how I was feeling during those moments.
I feel like during this short amount of time I became more of a stronger person emotionally. There are so many things that I still want to improve about myself but I’m glad that I’m able to take care of myself emotionally better. I’m still learning to find my self worth and I know I’ll find it somewhere along the way.
This has been a great experience and a great reminder of all the things that I am thankful for in my life.
I can’t wait to see what else the future has in store for me….
But until then…I just want to enjoy all the little things in my life and live my life to the fullest!! ✌🏼️

Men with breast cancer are getting double mastectomies, but it is helping? Between 2004 and 2011, the rates of contralateral prophylactic mastectomies in men nearly doubled, with 5.6 percent of men with breast cancer undergoing the operation in 2011, compared with 3 percent in 2004, according to the
