Breast tissue screened without consent11th March 2009
A leading UK plastic surgeon has claimed that young women undergoing breast reduction surgery are being screened for cancer without their informed consent.
Royal Free Hospital consultant Mohammed Keshtgar said that women who want these operations should be made explicitly aware that their removed breast tissue will be checked and questioned the ethics of doing tests with no counselling or consensus on the merits of treatment if cancer is found. Breast reduction surgery is one of the most common procedures performed by plastic surgeons all around the world.
