We know that many of the women who are receiving (double) mastectomy do not have advanced tumors that require mastectomy even on the affected side. Many of the women who are considering more aggressive surgery tell me that they are considering this because they want to make sure they will be there for those who depend on them, both at home and at work. For most women with early-stage breast cancer, lumpectomy with radiation therapy is an option, will yield equivalent overall survival to mastectomy, and will actually be less likely to disrupt their ability to be there for others.feedback

The broader literature on workplace harassment suggests that such experiences are more common when there is substantial gender imbalance in the workplace. I really thought that harassment would be much less commonly experienced by women in our sample, who went to medical school when the proportion of women among medical students had exceeded 40 percent.feedback
