Breast cancer patients faced with images in surgical consultation: the power of strangeness of medical photos

Abstract : This article aims to understand the ways in which photos used by doctors during the surgical consultation mediate and shape the patient’s social representations of breast cancer and its treatment. Eight focus groups (28 patients) with breast cancer patients were conducted in a French medical center. The results reveal the ways in which photos in medical information may “frame” patients’ representations and experience of illness. Implications for future research and medical care are discussed.
