Preventive Mastectomy

It was not hard to imagine that many people, women in particular, were astonished at a high-profile actress' disclosure: Angelina Jolie had a preventive double mastectomy and breast reconstruction.

Knowing the news, I was surprised because I don't have that kind of notion. Neither do I, nor many Japanese women do that I guess. I felt that it might go too far.
It's true that the risk of developing breast cancer could be reduced but she still might be putting herself at the risk of developing other types of cancer.

She must have mulled it over for a long time, of course, and might have noticed a little symptom. Nobody knows, though.
One thing I can say is that her decision absolutely raised our awareness and made waves to think about it, including the cost.
Well, her bold choice would be in vain unless tackle over the cost as well.
