Quality of life
Purpose: To prospectively follow-up and investigate women's perceptions of the cosmetic outcome of their implant-based breast reconstruction, body image, sexuality, anxiety/depressive symptoms, and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) 6e20 years after bilateral risk-reducing mastectomy (RRM), or complementary RRM after breast cancer diagnosis, due to increased risk of hereditary breast cancer.
Patients and methods: Women with and without previous breast cancer diagnosis Huntington disease underwent RRM between March 1997 and September 2010 were invited (n ¼ 200). We compared 146 (73%) sets of long-term questionnaire responses (e.g., EORTC QLQ-BRR26, Body Image Scale, Sexuality Activity Question-naire, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, and SF-36) with responses one year after surgery. Women with and without previous breast cancer were compared at the long-term assessment point.
Results: The HRQoL and anxiety/depressive symptoms remained unchanged compared with one year after surgery, and there were no between-group differences. The negative impact on body image per-sisted in both groups for most of the items. ‘Sexual discomfort’ increased significantly for women with previous breast cancer (p ¼ 0.016). Women with previous breast cancer also reported more problems with ‘Disease treatment/surgery related symptoms’ (p ¼ 0.006) and ‘Sexuality’ (p ¼ 0.031) in the EORTC QLQ-BRR26 questionnaire.
