misleading info

Last week, I watch a breast cancer segment on the Today SHow. A woman opted for a bilateral mastectomy as a preventative measure.
The show left the viewers believing a bilateral mastectomy would be insurance that there would never be any future breast cancer.
WRONG......we know here that not all breast tissue can be removed and quite often breast cancer recurs around the scar.
There is a lot of misinformation out there......too bad.....it's difficult making decisions even when you have credible info.
