‘Preventive’ breast cancer surgery has some docs alarmed
USA Today

Lisa Bonchek Adams was only 37, with a new baby and two older children, when her doctor noticed something strange during a routine breast exam. Although her doctor didn’t feel a lump, one breast felt “different” from the other. A few weeks later, Adams learned that she needed a mastectomy. Follow-up tests indicated there were cancer cells throughout Adams’ left breast, dispersed too widely to be removed with a lumpectomy.
