ROJoson’s Registry of Patients Saved from Unnecessary Breast Operation – 2019

I will resume this registry starting today, July 18, 2019.  I stopped doing the registry in 2018 when Facebook kept on blocking me because my blogs on this topic contained pictures of “nudity” – picture of breast with nipple with a symbol of  unnecessary breast operation.

I will resume this registry today minus the pictures that will be blocked by Facebook.  I started this registry in June 23, 2012 and target was 50 patients.

I will pick up where I stopped in 2018.  I will back-track again.  Most likely, I have reached 50 patients whom I have saved from unnecessary breast operations.

The old files can be seen in the following link:

My criteria for inclusion in my registry consist of the following:

  • Those patients who were previously advised to have a breast operation (one that is more than a needle evaluation and aspiration with or without biopsy) and after my evaluation, I decided it is not needed and the patient appreciated my recommendation.
  • Those patients with BIRADS 4 who were supposed to be operated on by other surgeon but which later turned out to be BIRADS 3 on my repeated evaluation.  Thus, no operations were done.
  • Those patients in which in there is no dominant breast mass and no suspicion for malignancy on imaging procedures and for one reason or another another surgeon recommended operation.  I just advised monitoring and check-up and no operation was done and needed.

Target: 50 patients

History of ROJoson’s Project: ROJoson’s Patients Saved from Unnecessary Breast Operations – June 23, 2012 (Start of Registry)

Posted on June 23, 2012

Today, June 23, 2012, I had a patient, Elizabeth_C, 40s, a sewer, whom I saved from an unnecessary breast operation.  She had a macrocyst which I just aspirated.   Prior to seeing me, she was advised by another physician to have a breast operation.   No doubt, as a result of what I did, she was very thankful to me as I saved her from an unnecessary breast operation. I have experienced a lot of this kind of situation before, that is, patients advised to have breast operations but which to me are not necessary, either just a needle aspiration is needed or the patient just has a fibrocystic breast condition, which is considered normal.

Today, June 23, 2012, I start a project dubbed as “Patients Saved from Unnecessary Breast Operations.”  I will make a registry of patients whom I have saved from unnecessary breast operations.   The main inclusion criterion will be those patients who were previously advised to have a breast operation (one that is more than a needle evaluation and aspiration with or without biopsy) and after my evaluation, I decided it is not needed and the patient appreciated my recommendation.  I will target a total of 50 patients in the registry.  I can backtrack, meaning those patients that I have saved from unnecessary breast operations even before June 23, 2012 can be included in the registry. This will be another legacy that I will leave behind for my patients.  The other one that I have started in December 2011 is the ROJoson’s Cancer Survivors in which I am also using “50″ as a target.   As of December 11, 2012, I already have 50 survivors in the registry.  I have reached my target.  As of June 19, 2019, I already have 139 survivors in the registry. The ROJoson’s Cancer Survivors and the ROJoson’s Patients Saved from Unnecessary Breast Operations will be two of my end-points in which I can say I have lived a life that matters.
