Pink ribbons are everywhere as October heralds in:

“Breast Cancer Awareness Month”

which I prefer to be know as:

“Healthy Breasts Awareness Month”

for women (and men too).

Over the 20 years of my medical practice I have diagnosed, worked with, treated and alleviated the fear of breast cancer in many women.

This year it is a bit more personal…

Today I will share with you what procedures are available for diagnoses and then over the next couple weeks will share with you tips to have the healthiest breasts possible!

First, I want to share with you my journey over the past several months and in this sort of brief documentary, make you aware of breast health and the diagnostic procedures that go along with diagnosing disease of the breast.

Believe me I understand the fear around this.

Earlier this year, I felt a swollen lymph node in my left axilla…

I first did a follow up thermogram as I have been doing those yearly.

Then, I went for a Mammogram (this video includes a clip of that – you can hear the shaking in my voice).

I was so scared that I’d be told that something was wrong.

That was followed by an ultrasound, and recently I had an MRI.

My technician Ashley allayed my fears by giving me a good description of what to expect and then Dr. Cunningham read my films.

This is the typical sequence of events:

  1. Mammogram,
  2. Ultrasound,
  3. MRI, and
  4. Biopsy

However we are, or however our breasts are today, with a history of breast cancer or not, they can be healthier tomorrow.

I will share with you how over the upcoming weeks.
Wishing you a Vida Pura,

Dr. Anna
