Summary

The BREAST-Q is a questionnaire used around the world to collect information from women about their quality of life and breast satisfaction after breast cancer surgery. In this study, researchers are testing 8 new BREAST-Q scales. These new scales will make it possible for researchers to study recovery from surgery, nipple appearance, and return of breast sensation.

The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete. Your answers will be confidential and will not be shared with anyone outside of the research team.
