#diepflapreconstruction is a surgical procedure used in #breastreconstruction after #mastectomy . It stands for "Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator" flap, and it involves taking tissue from the patient's lower abdomen (similar to a tummy tuck) and using it to reconstruct the breast. This method is often chosen because it provides a natural-looking and feeling breast while minimizing the impact on the abdominal muscles. It's important to consult with a #plasticsurgeon to discuss whether this technique is suitable for your individual case.#mastectomy #doublemastectomy #breastimplantsbeforeandafter #preventativedoublemastectomy #learnlooklocate #breastcancerunder35
#ductalcarcinomainsitu is the most common type of #breastcancer and begins in the ducts that carry breast milk from the lobules,. #DCIS can remain within the ducts as a non-invasive cancer or it can break out of the ducts and become #invasiveductalcarcinoma #invasiveductalbreastcancer #mastectomy #breastcancerunder40 #dcisbetter #breastcancerdiagnosis
#Metastaticbreastcancerdenovo refers to breast cancer that has already spread to distant parts of the body at the time of diagnosis, without showing any signs of a primary tumor in the breast. This is a less common presentation of breast cancer, and it typically indicates an advanced stage of the disease. Treatment options for metastatic breast cancer de novo often include systemic therapies like chemotherapy, targeted therapies, hormone therapy, and sometimes radiation therapy to manage symptoms and slow the progression of the cancer. It's important for individuals diagnosed with this condition to work closely with their healthcare team to develop a personalized treatment plan.

Treat #Radiation Side Effects with #hyperbaricoxygentherapy
Radiation therapy is a commonly used treatment for #cancer that uses high-energy radiation to destroy cancer cells. While it can be highly effective in destroying cancer cells, it can also cause long-term side effects that appear 6-months to even years later, known as late effects of radiation.
These effects can include damage to healthy tissues, scarring, and even the development of secondary cancers. Fortunately, there is a way to alleviate some of these side effects: hyperbaric oxygen therapy #HBOT #breastcancertrauma #breastcancertreatments #woundcare #radiationtherapy #woundhealing #breastcancersideeffects #sponsored
