TNBC Series Part II: Body Image After Surgery for Black Women
Body image issues may not be the most pressing concern at the beginning of a breast cancer journey, but they can dramatically affect quality of life. Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) has a significant impact on Black women. Since Black skin comes in a multitude of beautiful hues, that means scarring, bruising, burns, and stitches look different on the skin than white women. Dr. Regina Hampton, Breast Cancer Surgeon at Doctors Community Hospital in Washington, DC, will discuss how to advocate for yourself and feel comfortable bringing up body image concerns and challenges, even if your doctor doesn't look like you.
