Women diagnosed with breast cancer in Iran require permission from their husbands for medical surgery, including mastectomy. Although there is no legal basis for this, some doctors avoid doing surgery on patients without permission from their husbands, and some men use this power to harass their wives. This causes many problems in marriages and the social life of patients.
