RT #NoBraDay October 13
This day is celebrated without a bra because many women who have survived breast cancer can no longer go without wearing a bra because they need it to hold their prosthesis in place after undergoing surgery.

One sickness I can’t pray for anyone even that one person I hate most in this life to have is cancer. Love and light to everyone suffering from it. ❤️

I haven’t talked about my #breastcancer journey much on the twitters but since it’s #breastcancerawareness month, let’s do this.

Warning: Don’t follow me on the basis of this thread w/o checking the profile. I’m liberal AF & I mainly tweet about racism & sexism.
I was 1st diagnosed w #breastcancer in Jul 2014. Went thru dbl mastectomy, chemo, & reconstruction. Was rediagnosed w a local recurrence in Oct 2018.
The 1st dx was hard but not unexpected. My mom was dx 20yrs earlier w a more advanced #breastcancer. For 20 yrs I’d tell drs that and they’d look at me like I had an expiration date stamped on my forehead.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

I wish to update everyone on the role we play in early detection and treatment for women affected by this terrible disease.

As part of my training at the University of Pennsylvania, we were taught the role of regular Oral Cancer Screening to be carried out at each visit.

The mandible is the most common site for metastasis aka secondary spread of Breast Cancer.
As such we contribute both towards primary diagnosis and ruling out recurrence. A simple panoramic xray is generally sufficient in most cases.

If a patient is to undergo Chemotherapy, it becomes very important to eliminate all potential sources of infection.
