Lumpectomy vs. Double Mastectomy: A Cultural Dilema
Sabeen, a 45 year old Islamic, Iraqi immigrant was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. Her doctor has recommended surgical intervention. She is given information on both a lumpectomy and a mastectomy. Sabeen?s husband, Achmed, feels a lumpectomy would be appropriate in order for her to maintain some portion of her breast. Sabeen?s adult daughter, Baseema, believes a total mastectomy would drastically increase Sabeen?s chance of survival.
Sabeen in caught in the middle. Based on a patriarchal culture, Sabeen should listen to her husband?s recommendations. However, having lived in the United States for the last 15 years, Baseema is Americanized and is pushing her mother to make the choice to live.
Achmed wants a lumpectomy – Lumpectomy removes only the breast lump and a surrounding margin of normal tissue. Radiation therapy is usually given after a lumpectomy. If adjuvant chemotherapy is to be given as well, radiation is usually delayed until the chemotherapy is completed.
Baseema wants a double mastectomy- Mastectomy is surgery to remove the entire breast. All of the breast tissue is removed, sometimes along with other nearby tissues. Simple mastectomy: In this procedure, also called total mastectomy, the surgeon removes the entire breast, including the nipple, but does not remove underarm lymph nodes or muscle tissue from beneath the breast. Sometimes both breasts are removed (a double mastectomy), often as preventive surgery in women at very high risk for breast cancer. Most women, if they are hospitalized, can go home the next day. This is the most common type of mastectomy used to treat breast cancer.
Sabeen is torn finding it difficult to make the ?right? decision.
