Breast Cancer deadlier for African-American women

The women are among 11 people who have lived through breast cancer to tell their personal stories at South Bank as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with a pink gallery on a wall in Stanley Street Plaza featuring their photos and comments.

Breast cancer is a devastating disease, affecting thousands of Oklahoma women each year. I wondered if such feelings were wrong?

"The equipment is said to be able to treat over 90% of cancers that require radiation".

A mastectomy is a procedure that removes the entire breast - something that is necessary in some cases based on how large the mass is and how invasive the cancerous cells are within the breast.

After fear of recurrence, Dr. Marmor said, another reason was the perception that CPM is the best treatment for breast cancer. "The recovery stage for me was very easy". At the same time I was asking my doctor what "highly suspicious" meant, I was watching Kirtley as she held on and got ready to let go. Losing my hair was nothing compared to losing my breast.

In the new study, researchers set out to find if mammograms were good at detecting the kinds of small tumors that grow to become risky. Surgery and drug treatment will still be the major treatment options, but the sequencing of treatment will depend upon the specific details of the woman's individual cancer type.

The surgery utilizes Invuity's Intelligent Photonics technology to illuminate the breast cavity and improve the surgeon's visibility during a lumpectomy and nipple sparing mastectomy. Additionally, only about seven per cent of women are offered immediate (at the time of their mastectomy) breast reconstruction. Others said plastic surgeons said CPM would help lead to better breast reconstruction surgery outcomes, the study findings showed.

"Prayer before I go in and prayer when I come out, (of the test)", she said.

But my chemotherapy was the same most women received. "We look forward to the opportunity to work with the other people seeing patients rather than being seen as a separate entity altogether". I see much more than that now.

Up to 10 percent of breast cancer diagnoses will be men as well, so men should watch for lumps on the breast.

As a breast cancer survivor, this is very dear to myself as well as others. In between all that I had my first surgery followed by several more additional surgeries over the past four years. "She worked with a lot of charities, too, and she was an example to me that you should do this kind of thing".

ABOUT BREAST RECONSTRUCTION AWARENESS (BRA) DAYFounded in 2011 by Dr. Mitchell Brown, Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day promotes education, awareness and access for women who may wish to consider post-mastectomy breast reconstruction.

MYTH: I am not at risk of breast cancer because there is no family history of cancer.
