Thank You!

Jesse Dirksen, MD, a breast health specialist at Sanford Health, talks about if preventative breast cancer surgery is effective. Yes, it is effective for women who are deemed to be very high risk for breast cancer and can significantly decrease their chance of developing breast cancer in their lifetime. However, even with both breasts removed, it will not completely eliminate their risk of developing breast cancer.
