A Dual-Surgeon Approach to Breast Cancer Surgery in a Transmale

With increasing numbers of gender-affirming chest surgery, new questions regarding breast cancer management and surgical practice arise. Guided by our case report, we present a comprehensive review of breast cancer surgery in a transman to educate both plastic and breast surgeons on various factors to consider when caring for these patients.

ConclusionPatient-reported outcome measures used in clinical studies for assessing sensation after mastectomy and breast reconstruction are unsuitable for this purpose: they are either non-validated or non-specific. We failed to identify any measures for use in non-oncologic breast surgery populations worth modifying. To collect meaningful, patient-relevant data regarding sensation after mastectomy, it is pertinent that future clinical trials adopt psychometrically robust, specific patient-reported outcome measures.

CONCLUSIONS: Lateral chest wall perforator flaps are reliable and safe option for partial breast reconstruction with an acceptable aesthetic outcome. In the era of oncoplastic breast surgery, they deserve to gain attention especially with the advantages of some modifications added to the classic technique.PMID:35001182 | PMC:PMC8743083 | DOI:10.1186/s43046-021-00100-5

J Breast Cancer. 2021 Dec;24(6):520-530. doi: 10.4048/jbc.2021.24.e52.ABSTRACTPURPOSE: The oncoplastic breast-conserving surgery (OPS) technique, combined with the principles of oncological safety and plastic surgery, results in complete tumor resection while preserving the natural appearance of the breast. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term oncological results after OPS compared with conventional breast-conserving surgery (BCS) for early breast cancer.METHODS: The medical records of patients who underwent breast cancer surgery and adjuvant radiation therapy at Seoul National University Hospital betwee...
