Breast Surgery for Treating Fear
Majid Ali, M.D.
How Often Is Breast Surgery (including Mastectomy) Done for Feat? Sadly Too Often.
Surgery for Fear and Anger
Who would imagine that any woman will accept removal of one or both breast to treat fear? Or for anger? The answer: When frightened enough with incomplete information, anyone will agree to have cancer surgery for growths that are not cancerous.
for Fear and anger cannot be treated with surgery. When they are, both reappear, often with greater intensity.
Consider the case of surgery for breast cancer.
In this article, I summarize eye-opening findings concerning a study of 100,000 women followed for 20 years published in August 2015 in the journal JAMA Oncology. The texts below are taken from The New York Times of August 20, 2015. I add here that what the Times is deeply lamenting here is well known to experienced pathologists like myself, as well as European doctors for some decades.
Quotes from The New York Times
The texts below are taken from The New York Times of August 20, 2015. I add here that what the Times is deeply lamenting here is well known to experienced pathologists like myself, as well as European doctors for some decades.
“As many as 60,000 American women each year are told they have a very early stage of breast cancer— Stage 0, as it is commonly known — a possible precursor to what could be a deadly tumor. And almost every one of the women has either a lumpectomy or a mastectomy and often a double mastectomy, removing a healthy breast as well.”
“Yet it now appears that treatment may make no difference in their outcomes. Patients with this condition had close to the same likelihood of dying of breast cancer as women in the general population, and the few who died did so despite treatment, not for lack of it, researchers reported Thursday in JAMA Oncology.”
“Their conclusions were based on the most extensive collection of data ever analyzed on the condition, known as ductal carcinoma in situ, or D.C.I.S.: 100,000 women followed for 20 years. The findings are likely to fan debate about whether tens of thousands of patients are undergoing unnecessary and sometimes disfiguring treatments for premalignant conditions that are unlikely to develop into life-threatening cancers.”
