Breast Cancer Study Clarifies Efficacy Of Preventive Mastectomies

Dr. Greg talks with UK Healthcare Oncologist Ed Romond about the procedure made famous by actor Angelina Jolie.

A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association casts doubt on whether a double mastectomy is the best method of breast cancer prevention.

He points out that Ms. Jolie was found to have a genetic mutation known as BRCA, that predisposed her to breast cancer.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
