Prospective Nipple-Areola Skin-Sparing Mastectomy
The purpose of this study is to see if keeping the nipple-areola disk: 1. increases the risk (greater than 1%) of the patient's cancer coming back in the local area; 2. has sensation after a mastectomy (removal of the breast) is performed; and 3. affects body image and quality of life.
Primary Objective: - To determine the oncologic safety of performing a skin-sparing mastectomy with preservation of the NAC by determining the local recurrence rate at 2 years. Secondary Objectives: - To determine the sensation of the NAC post nipple-areola skin-sparing mastectomy. - To determine the impact of preservation of the NAC on body image and quality of life.
