In brief: Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is definitely a deadly disease.
The patients that survive deal with the psychological and physical ramifications from having cancer. Many times, the therapy (surgery, chemotherapy, radiation) can treat the cancer, but also dramatically affect the patient's well being. Seeing a plastic surgeon early can help patients deal with their disease and start to feel whole again.
