The month of october is when we take the time to promote breast cancer awareness and the delicate subjects that. Go along with it. Awareness

Breast

There are many symptoms of breast cancer, such as lumps, swelling, skin changes and nipple discharge. It can be scary to visit the doctor when any of these symptoms are present, but remember, the earlier breast. Cancer. Is diagnosed, the better the chance of beating it.

Here are some of the most common questions:

WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP AFTER SURGERY?

Many women have a difficult time adjusting to the changes in their bodies after undergoing breast surgery. Whether the loss of your breast is temporary (breast reconstruction) or permanent, you may benefit from the use of a breast form with a specialty bra made to retain body shape, balance and positive self-image. The best people to talk to about this are your doctor or nurse or a Certified Fitter of Orthotics and Mastectomy products.

ARE THERE ANY PRODUCTS THAT CAN HELP ME DURING MY POST-DIAGNOSIS TREATMENTS?

Some of these products are body lotions, deodorants and shampoos that are metal-free, especially during and after radiation treatments. There are also many types of wigs, headwear, turbans, beauty products and more to help you feel better. Awareness

Cancer

Most insurance companies authorize or deny services based on medical necessity, which is why it is so important to work closely with your physician’s office along with your mastectomy product provider of your choice.

In my experience, many of the patients I have helped have mentioned an elevated sense of confidence wearing their prosthesis and feel much more secure in their appearance.

For more information about mastectomy or lumpectomy related items, please call or visit us and know that you will be treated with care, respect and privacy.
