Double mastectomy has become increasingly popular as a breast cancer treatment, but it may not reduce cancer risk.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so we decided to devote this week’s episode to the subject.

First, we discussed the latest in diagnosing and treating the disease — and answered listeners’ questions — with Dr. Dianne Johnson, medical director of breast imaging at HCA Memorial Women’s Center, and Beth Boyer, a physician assistant in hematology/oncology at Mayo Clinic’s Jacoby Center for Breast Health.

Then, we spoke with WJCT’s own David Luckin about his journey with breast cancer, one year later.
