The Basic Scale Structure
The BREAST-Q has independent modules for breast cancer (mastectomy, breast-conserving therapy, reconstruction), augmentation and reduction/mastopexy. Each module is composed of multiple scales that can be used independently. Four pre-operative and three post-operative scales are common to all breast cancer patients. These include (preoperatively) Satisfaction with Breasts and Psychosocial, Sexual, and Physical Wellbeing Chest and (postoperatively) Satisfaction with Surgeon, Medical Team and Office Staff.
