I've known plenty of developers who were afraid of touching code.
A new feature was always "glued" to already existing code, no matter if it fit.
The result is almost always some Frankenstein's monster.

I say, we have source control so we can always roll back or see how it was.
We have advanced developer tools showing us where what code is used.
Just rewrite the thing if necessary and make sure you test well (unit tests, if possible, and manual tests).
Never forget to manual test everything you've touched.
I know some developers don't manual test because "that's a tester's job".
In the end it's my code and I'm responsible for it.
I'm the master of my code (even if I inherited it) and not the other way around.
