You may receive a sedative by mouth and an intravenous line may be put in. You will then be transferred to the operating table. Your doctor will scrub thoroughly and will apply an antiseptic solution to the skin around the area where the needle will be inserted. Then, the doctor will place a sterile drape or towels around the operative site... and will inject a local anesthetic. This will sting a bit, but your breast will quickly begin to feel numb. Usually, the surgeon will inject more than one spot - in order to make sure that the entire area is thoroughly numb Patient Education Company

Bye Bye Tata's  (An hour before my bilateral mastectomy in Oct. 2010)
 
01:40
In this video I say Bye Bye to my Tata's (An hour before my bilateral mastectomy in Oct. 2010) after I did 6 months of chemo. I was with my friend Lori. This video, along with a few other videos from my Breast Cancer journey we first posted on my old channel in 2010. They were under my old account, and I had no contact to them. Plus, the videos themselves, were made and saved on an old laptop, that i no longer have. So I couldn't save then to this channel, or do anything with them. Thank God, my son Christian just showed me a way to save them and post them here. Thank you CG! Anyway, For those who didn't know, when I was 34, I found a lump in my left breast. My doctor asked if it hurt. I said yes. She said "then its not cancer, because cancer doesn't hurt." SO NOT TRUE! Anyway, she told me not to worry. A year later, which was a month after I left my ex, and a week prior to my 36th birthday, the lump was much bigger. So I went back to the doctors, and insisted on a mamogram. A week later, I was told I had breast cancer. I ended up being diagnosed with Stage 3B breast cancer. In the end, I actually had 3 different tumors in my left breast, abmormal tissues in my right breast and many positive nodes that went up to my axillary nodes. My largest tumor was invasive ductal carcinoma, another was invasive lobular carcinoma, and the smallest one was ductal carcinoma in situ, which was not effected chemotherapy. Treatment was 6 months of chemo, radiation, six surgeries hormonal therapy, and a few more yrs of other cancer pills. And I finally reached 5 yrs NED!! But unfortunatly that yr I was already searching for what was medically wrong with me again. And in Feb 2016 I ended up finding a mediastinal and lung tumor they thought it was some kind of metastatic (stage 4) carcinoma, that was not related to my breast cancer. After another 3 months of being on the wrong chemotherapy, and many misdiagnosis, I was finally diagnosed with metastatic mediastinal melanoma, no skin involvement. Which is an extremely rare form of melanoma, which I was originally given 3 to 6 months to live on my current treatment. But I am still fighting. It is June 2018 and we just now started to see that the treatment may have stopped working. But I won't stop fighting. Anyway, you can watch videos about my entire Breast Cancer Story, and Melanoma story, along with updates below.

Breast cancer is a kind of cancer that develops from breast cells. Breast cancer usually starts off in the inner lining of milk ducts or the lobules that supply them with milk. A malignant tumor can spread to other parts of the body. A breast cancer that started off in the lobules is known as lobular carcinoma, while one that developed from the ducts is called ductal carcinoma.

Can Fibrocystic Breast Disease cause swelling of the armpit? - Dr. Nanda Rajaneesh

That man there is irregularity of the hormones on the surface of the breast leading to lobule formation, leading to nodule formation, leading to swelling, fibroadenoma, cysts formation and clumping of the breast tissue. If the breast tissue available in the armpit also we call it an accessory axillary breast, the fibrocystic changes can happen in these areas also if the preexisting or the predisposing factors for Fibrocystic disease is present. So they can present with increase in swelling in the arm, increased in the size of this lump and pain, which is cyclical pain, we call it as mastalgia which is cyclical in nature, which can even happen in the armpit. In these patients whether the fibrocystic disease is in the breast or in the armpit, we evaluate the patients breast and axilla to look for any swelling or cysts present by ultrasound scanning. We also have to evaluate these patients for nutritional deficiencies, especially Vitamin D3 deficiencies which is one of the raw material for producing hormones, which we work on these lobular cells of the breast. So if these hormones are deficient or these nutrients are deficient, then supplementing nutrient is known to improve the hormones.

Platinum Life: Petra Roodt (Breast Cancer)
 
09:14
57-year-old breast cancer survivor Petra Roodt resides in Krugersdorp. She is a housewife and a mother of two. Last year October Petra discovered a lump in her breast. It was almost like something had bitten her on her breast, she actually thought it was a mosquito bite. She rubbed and rubbed on the spot where she was itchy on her breast until she eventually felt a lump. Mrs. Roodt immediately went to her gynecologist who confirmed that it was indeed a lump. He was so certain he did not even want to send her for a mammogram, instead he sent her to the surgeon immediately. In the beginning of November Petra had her appointment with a surgeon, a week later her bilateral mastectomy was done. This was a procedure that they had to do immediately as the surgeon's biopsy had already revealed that Petra had breast cancer. The reason she went for a bilateral mastectomy was because she had lobular carcinoma. This is when the cancer is in the milk lobes and the cancer will eventually occur in the other breast in the same spot. The possibility of the cancer spreading caused a lot of anxiousness and stress, so that Petra decided to take her surgeon's advice and remove both breasts at the same time. Next up was her chemotherapy, which was not always easy. "The first two were fine but after the third one I felt like running away," says Petra. Although she was lucky enough to only receive four sessions, her treatment was quite drastic. She concludes that when times were hard the constant phone calls from Leandi really made her feel better. After her chemotherapy Petra went for her blood tests and they came back clean, for which she is grateful. All she has to do now is to go for her blood tests every three months to see if all is well. Petra has a family history of cancer, her mother died from ovarian cancer but breast cancer was a diagnosis that started with her and has never been diagnosed to anyone else in her family. A positive mindset and attitude is what helped her to deal with the diagnosis. "It could have been worse.... I could have lost my arm or sight, or something. The cancer was not the end of the world. I believed that I here now, I have to get through it and I will get through it," says Petra. The medical expenses were very high but fortunately her medical aid managed to cover most of the expenses. The ones that were not covered she managed to pay for with her payout that she received from Platinum Life. Petra mentions that she could buy her bra prosthesis among other items. Petra is very pleased with Platinum Life. She admits that when she was contacted she never thought that she would ever be diagnosed with cancer and thought that she did not need the policy. The low premiums and the fact that if you have not claimed by the age of 65 then you were paid back a percentage of that money was what convinced her to take the policy in 2009. When she was diagnosed with cancer in 2011 she immediately remembered her Platinum Life cancer policy. After correspondence with Platinum Life, the receiving of documents and the sending of her own documents, her policy was paid out within 3 weeks. "It was the most amazing service ever," says Mrs. Roodt. After a session of chemo Petra was not feeling all too well. She was shopping when she received a phone call from Platinum Life wanting to know what her shoe and clothing size was. A day later a package arrived at her home filled with pyjamas and all the other "goodies" in it. "You could see that the person who got these gifts knew what was going on...I was so ecstatic" says the 57-year-old mother of two. The biggest surprise was when she received another call from Platinum Life offering her more things to spoil her with. Petra can't remember all of them but says the one that jumped out at her was the option of staying at a five star hotel just to spoil herself. Her advice is the same one she gave to her daughter, to go for annual mammograms. Look out for lumps and take care of your breasts. Choose healthier food. And if you are diagnosed with cancer then you must deal with it and remember that it is not the end of the world. Cancer is not a death sentence.

Rita Wilson Has Breast Cancer, Undergoes Double Mastectomy and Reconstructive Surgery
 
01:44
Rita Wilson is sharing some difficult and very personal news: she was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and has undergone a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. In an exclusive statement to PEOPLE, the actress, 58, reveals the diagnosis and how she feels "blessed" to have the love and support of her husband, Tom Hanks, friends, family and the doctors who saved her life. "I have taken a leave from the play Fish in the Dark to deal with a personal health issue," reveals Wilson, who will return to the Broadway play on May 5. "Last week, with my husband by my side, and with the love and support of family and friends, I underwent a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction for breast cancer after a diagnosis of invasive lobular carcinoma. I am recovering and most importantly, expected to make a full recovery. Why? Because I caught this early, have excellent doctors and because I got a second opinion. "I have had an underlying condition of LCIS, (lobular carcinoma in situ) which has been vigilantly monitored through yearly mammograms and breast MRIs. Recently, after two surgical breast biopsies, PLCIS (pleomorphic carcinoma in situ) was discovered. I mention this because there is much unknown about PLCIS and it is often found alongside DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ). I was relieved when the pathology showed no cancer.

Mother who underwent double mastectomy after breast cancer battle poses for powerful shoot reconstru

Mother who underwent double mastectomy after breast cancer battle poses topless for powerful shoot – as she says reconstructive surgery would be 'a reminder of what I had lost' Photographer Jai Eastwood, 52, a mother of three from Pontardawe, South Wales, posed for topless pictures two years after a double mastectomy After surgery she felt unattractive and 'like a boy' But the photoshoot has helped her to feel like herself again Wants other women to see they needn't feel bad about not having breasts A woman who refusedce surgery after suffering breast cancer and undergoing a double mastectomy posed for topless shots – and said she has never felt so sassy. Photographer Jai Eastwood, 52, a mother of three from Pontardawe, South Wales, said two years post-surgery that she feels more confident than ever. 'I feel so attractive and feminine,' she said. Jai, while not critical of people who opt to have their breasts reconstructed, decided reconstructive surgery was not for her. 'It would be a constant reminder of what I had lost, you can't pretend these breasts are yours,' she said. 'I felt like a boy for the first year after my surgery with no hair and no boobs, but now I feel fabulous. 'I want other women to see what they might look like if they don't have reconstruction and not to fear it.' This is despite a cruel stranger asking Jai if she was in the right bathroom in a restaurant. 'She asked me what I was doing in the ladies, but I just turned to her and said, "It's cancer, you miserable woman",' Jai, previously a 34B cup, recalled. Diagnosed with invasive lobular breast cancer in April 2014, after noticing a ridge on her left breast, Jai – who is married to survey company director Richard, 54 – had gone to her GP thinking it was nothing. She was then horrified to learn, after a number of mammograms and ultrasounds, that she had several small tumours, measuring 5cm in total, in her left breast. Medics said her right breast was also presenting in a similar way and advised both were removed. She had a six-hour surgery at Singleton Hospital, Swansea, to remove both her breasts, before having four months of chemotherapy. Jai turned down radiotherapy. Doctors offered her the option to have her breasts reconstructed at the same time as the mastectomy, but she also declined. For her, it was an easy decision to make and she had the full support of her husband and her three children. 'I told the doctor to just get rid of the cancer – and remove the breasts,' Jai said. 'That's all you can do when you get this diagnosis.' Jai and her husband Richard said they found solace in Maggie’s, a support charity with a centre in Swansea. Jai, while not critical of people who opt to have their breasts reconstructed, decided the surgery was not for her. 'It would be a constant reminder of what I had lost, you can't pretend these breasts are yours,' she said. She had previously researched the reconstruction and learnt that, because of her small size, she would need them to be made from pigs' skin – something she was uncomfortable with. For four days, she locked herself away, while she researched what was going to happen – even putting a sign on the bedroom door, asking Richard to leave tea and sandwiches outside and not to knock. 'I needed to work out who I was going to become, who are the role models and what a double mastectomy is,' she said. While Jai was certain of what she wanted, it was other people who were questioning her choice to have a flat chest. 'I told everyone I wasn't having reconstructive surgery, but people still asked me why,' Jai said. 'One friend even asked me what size my new breasts would be. It made me feel so angry, as if losing my boobs was losing my femininity.' Jai requested that the surgeon made her scars as neat and flat as possible, with no lumps and bumps. And when she finally came to terms with her new look she realised her body had been transformed. She said: 'In the flesh, they're not pretty, it's not something I wish I had, but I still feel great. 'And I don't hide it. When I wear a vest, my ribs stick out further than my concave chest, but I straighten my back, broaden my smile and we are back on track.'

New View on Screening Dense Breasts
 
01:57
Up to 40% of women have dense breast tissue and there is a growing concern it may be harder for them to detect growing cancers with a traditional mammogram. "What we are talking about is the ratio of fatty and fibro glandular elements within a particular patient's breasts," says Dr. Gail Santucci, diagnostic radiologist with Lee Memorial Health System. Four basic categories classify breast tissue. "The main one is mostly fatty tissue, which is very easy to see a small lesion on mammography. Then there are people with scattered fibro glandular density, who have some density but there still is a lot fatty tissues. Then you move on to heterogeneously dense meaning that they have a lot of glandular tissue and then the final density category is predominantly fibro glandular," says Dr. Santucci. Here's what doctors are facing. "This patient has what we would describe as extremely dense breast tissue and the difference should be fairly readily apparent," says Dr. Santucci. In this mammogram, glandular elements make up most of the breast tissue, making it hard to spot small lesions. "You might not be able to see something until it is bigger and can show through that dense breast tissue," says Dr. Santucci. Studies show adding ultrasound in women with dense breast tissue increases the likelihood of finding early cancer. Now the FDA approved a new automated technology, which scans the entire breast. The automated breast ultrasound provides 3D images that can see through dense tissue. "It is significant because besides the mammography it's the only technology that's been FDA approved for screening. That does not unfortunately mean your insurance will pay for it," says Dr. Santucci. Lack of insurance coverage and limited availability are obstacles during this transitional phase. "As we move forward, we'll be able to clarify what the best screening of women with different breast densities is," says Dr. Santucci. The goal is to find cancer early in everyone.

Rita Wilson Diagnosed With Breast Cancer, Gets Double Mastectomy  Read more: http://www.usmagazine.c

Fighting through it. Rita Wilson revealed on Tuesday, April 14, that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer. The Girls actress, 58, recently underwent a double mastectomy to treat the disease and got reconstructive surgery as a result. She is taking some time off from her onstage role in Larry David's Fish in the Dark to recover, but will return to the Broadway show on May 5. PHOTOS: Stars Who Battled Breast Cancer "Last week, with my husband [Tom Hanks] by my side, and with the love and support of family and friends, I underwent a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction for breast cancer after a diagnosis of invasive lobular carcinoma," Wilson said in a statement to Us Weekly. "I am recovering and most importantly, expected to make a full recovery. Why? Because I caught this early, have excellent doctors and because I got a second opinion." "I have had an underlying condition of LCIS, (lobular carcinoma in situ) which has been vigilantly monitored through yearly mammograms and breast MRIs," she continued. "Recently, after two surgical breast biopsies, PLCIS (pleomorphic carcinoma in situ) was discovered. I mention this because there is much unknown about PLCIS and it is often found alongside DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ). I was relieved when the pathology showed no cancer. However, a friend who had had breast cancer suggested I get a second opinion on my pathology and my gut told me that was the thing to do." PHOTOS: Celebrity Health Scares "A different pathologist found invasive lobular carcinoma," added the recovering star. "His diagnosis of cancer was confirmed by, yet, another pathologist. I share this to educate others that a second opinion is critical to your health. You have nothing to lose if both opinions match up for the good, and everything to gain if something that was missed is found, which does happen. Early diagnosis is key." Thankfully, the Good Wife alum did catch her cancer early and is getting better as her famous husband of nearly 27 years, Hanks, stands by her. The Oscar-winning actor, 58, has yet to comment on his wife's health troubles, but he was honored by his love on Twitter last week. In the days surrounding her surgery, Wilson tweeted a vintage photo with Hanks from their 1985 movie Volunteers, and wrote, ".@tomhanks I'm as in love with you today as I ever have been. More. #tbt." In the years since the movie, the two stars have appeared in multiple other flicks together including Sleepless in Seattle and That Thing You Do, and welcomed sons Chet, 24, and Truman, 19. PHOTOS: Stars Who Beat Cancer Wilson, who also recently retweeted a message reading, "Hard times reveals true friends," added in her statement to Us just how lucky she feels to have loved ones supporting her during this tough time. "I feel blessed to have a loving, supportive husband, family, friends and doctors and that I am the beneficiary of advances in the field of breast cancer and reconstruction," she said. "I am getting better every day and look forward to renewed health. I hope this will encourage others to get a second opinion and to trust their instincts if something doesn't 'feel' right."

Prophylactic Mastectomy
 
01:50
When Leslie Anderson learned she had the BRCA gene, she knew it meant she had an extremely high risk of developing breast cancer. Anderson weighed her options- and took an aggressive step. "I made an appoint with a physician and discussed the option of doing a prophylactic mastectomy. To totally wipe out that risk," says Leslie Anderson. "A prophylactic mastectomy basically is a mastectomy performed for an individual that does not have a cancer," says Dr. Lea Blackwell, surgical breast oncologist on Lee Memorial Health System's medical staff. An increasing number of women who never had a cancer diagnosis are getting breasts removed based on genetic risk. Experts believe it's reasonable for those who are BRCA positive. But the trend is expanding. "When someone has a breast cancer and they have elected to do a mastectomy a lot of times they'll ask 'what about the other breast?' When you remove that other breast we call that a contralateral prophylactic mastectomy. Removing the opposite side of the breast to prevent a breast cancer in the future," says Dr. Blackwell. A few decades ago women were inclined to hold on to their breasts unless it was absolutely necessary. Nowadays there is much less resistance to mastectomy. Driving forces are anxiety over the risk of breast cancer and improvements in reconstruction. "I feel like it's a personal decision. They don't have to have that done, but if they want it done then that can be done for them," says Dr. Blackwell. Researchers found the rise in double mastectomy doesn't match people's expectation of reoccurrence. "A lot of people predicted 50 percent 70 percent, pretty high prediction. And actually the real number is probably about 20 to 30 percent," says Dr. Blackwell. Anderson is among the minority, who understood her risk had both breasts removed with both eyes open. "There was never a doubt in my mind from the very beginning, I knew that was going to be my choice," says Anderson.
