Go Pink: National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Published by Aubrey Sohaney

Every October is a great opportunity for our cosmetic surgeon in Lisle, Il to call attention to everyone who has been affected by breast cancer in some way. Our team has seen firsthand the devastation that breast cancer brings upon families, but we have also seen the perseverance and grit that not only women show, but their families as well. Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers that women get, with about 1 in 8 women in the U.S. getting breast cancer at some point in their lives.

The Importance of Mammograms

Mammograms consist of scanning the breast tissue for cancer-causing cells. It is recommended that women aged 40-44 begin annual mammograms. Women 45 to 54 years old should get a mammogram every year, and women 55 and older should switch to mammograms every 2 years. It’s important to note whether breast cancer runs in your family; if it does, get screenings often and early.

Signs of Breast Cancer

Common symptoms of breast cancer include a lump or mass in the breast, nipples turning inward, breast pain, nipple pain, swelling of the breast(s), a red or thick nipple, and nipple discharge. It’s important that you visit a doctor if you are experiencing any of those symptoms.

Getting Involved

It’s safe to say that we all know at least one person who has been impacted by breast cancer in some way. October is a great chance to unite together and spread the word about the importance of mammograms, continued research, campaigning for high-quality services, and so much more.

Our team knows that breast cancer survivors may want surgery to get their breasts replaced. If you’re a breast cancer survivor and want to get your breasts replaced, contact our cosmetic surgeon in Lisle, Il today.

First time here & I will definitely be back! Allison did my Botox. She was honest when I asked her what areas she thought botox would be best for me & explained the whole process. I have received botox at other cosmetic centers & this was by far the best experience!
