October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Every year, over 200,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S. alone. People are hard at work all year studying and developing new treatments for breast cancer, and spreading awareness about the issue is incredibly important.
Performing routine self breast exams is incredibly beneficial. Catching breast cancer early significantly increases your chance of survival. If you discover something concerning, you should schedule an appointment with your physician to have the issue thoroughly evaluated.
At Pacific Plastic Surgery Institute, we have helped numerous breast cancer survivors restore their comfort and confidence with their appearance by performing breast reconstruction procedures. If you have undergone a mastectomy or may need to, contact our office to schedule a consultation. We will provide you with comforting and compassionate care.
