Breasts are Beautiful

Now that I got your attention, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women, and in 2019 more than 260,000 women and 2,500 men were diagnosed with breast cancer. Nobody knows how many transgenders may be impacted in the future but the good news is there is a greater chance of survival today than there was twenty years ago or longer. 

 

 

 

 

Losing a Mother and two of her sisters and my best friend to breast cancer was very hard to cope with especially because none of them had warning signs. All of them were in good health. According to cancer research, there are some risk factors that are out of your control, such as aging, family history of breast cancer and other genetic factors. The United States Preventative Services Task Force recommends getting a mammogram screening every two years if you are over the age of 50. If anyone has concerns, they should address them with their physician. 

 

A few years ago, I received notice strongly recommending I get a second mammogram at a different location because there were problems with the equipment where my test was taken. I saw flashes of funerals and scheduled an appointment immediately. Luckily, it was the machine and I do not have breast cancer. But it made me think, how many people received similar notices and had surgery done or ignored the notices all together? 

 

 

We all need to be in charge of our own bodies and learn about the warning signs, such as lumps in the breast or underarm, red or irritated breast skin or any change in the size or shape of the breast. Spouses and/or partners should inspect their loved ones too for unusual changes. Technically speaking, our bodies is all we really come into this world with and own. Early detection is important. Family history will determine when or how often to get a mammogram as instructed by your physician. Communication with trusted physicians and getting local support when needed can provide further education.  

 

"There can be life after breast cancer. The prerequisite is early detection." 
---Ann Jillian

"Men need to be aware of the health of their bodies, as well - prostate cancer and breast cancer are almost on the same level. It's fascinating to me that the correlation between the two is almost the same - people don't talk about it much, but they are almost

equal in numbers." --- Olivia Newton-John

 

"Whether you're a mother or father, or a husband or a son, or a niece

or nephew or uncle, breast cancer doesn't discriminate."

---Stephanie McMahon

 

"I was diagnosed with full-body cancer. I am the healthiest person you know.

You know I do it all. I take vitamins. I grew my own food. I do everything.

And it didn't fit, and it was so awful."

---Suzanne Somers

Yes, that is one catchy title. There is a direct link between breast cancer and prostate cancer. I lost my sister to breast cancer which metastasized into brain cancer. And I have been dealing with prostate cancer, four years ago had surgery and now undergoing radiation for a rising psa which indicated a re-occurrence.

Patricia- yes we have to take charge of our bodies and encourage our friends and loved ones to do so as well. Many years ago I had a mammogram. I was sitting in the waiting area after my test waiting for them to tell me that I could leave. One of the nurses came out and said that the doctor wanted to talk to me. 

I was scared, worried, frightened...all of the words you'd associate with hearing the news that no one wants to get. 

When I went to the back, it turns out that the doctor was a former client who recognized my name and wanted to say hello to me. 

She was overwhelmed when I gave her a huge bear hug!!!

Good morning, Patricia... I think these days we would be hard-pressed to find someone who hasn't been touched personally by breast cancer... while I haven't had it, one of my oldest friends lost both breasts at a relatively young age, my oldest sister had it, one of my favorite colleagues in the corporate world ultmately died from it. And that's just for starters... it's an insiduous disease. The best thing about it these days is that it's no longer a shameful secret women keep to themselves and getting it out in the open has no doubt saved many lives.

Thank you mamacita! Lost my mom to it as well. She survived 2x over 20+ years, and the third she was just too tired.

And also thank you for bringing up that men can be affected as well.

Hi Patricia:

Thank you for sharing this important message. I lost a cousin and a number of friends to breast cancer - it’s a horrible disease and thankfully the chances of survival have improved but there is still so much to be done!
