Today’s Breast Cancer Awareness Day. Breast cancer is a devastating entity for women, being today the first cause of cancer in the female population worldwide.
Often, a mastectomy (complete removal of the affected breast) is needed in order to cure the disease. This is what we know as a NEEDED TRADEOFF.
On the other hand, even if the patient gets cured, the emotional impact of this procedure stays, affecting the patient’s intimacy, self-esteem, and her mind in general.
To those of you who have had a mastectomy… We remind you that reconstructive surgery has alternatives for you. Breast reconstruction is a procedure by means of which you can reconstruct your breast with your own tissues, or sometimes with aid of breast implants. Multiple types of procedures exist, that need to be discussed on a case by case basis.
Don’t lose hope! Visit a certified plastic surgeon, and discuss your options…
DECIDE TO GET RECONSTRUCTED… DECIDE TO KEEP ON GOING!
