Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Surgery
October is breast cancer awareness month, so we’ve been giving you information all month long on the disease. Today we are talking about what’s new with cancer surgery. Joining us this morning, Doctor Karen Barbosa.
Dr. Barbosa says, “Oncoplastic surgery is the fusion of cancer surgery and plastic surgery.”
Dr. Barbosa also tells us, “It’s important to remember that no matter how good the surgeon is, tissue can settle differently over time. Radiation might also change the cosmetic appearance.”
She says it is important to talk to your doctor regarding your options and to be your own advocate.
