Q: 

What types of preventative methods do you employ to handle stress ?

A: Exercise really, really helps. I practice Krav Maga regularly. Since I started doing this, my overall perception of stress went down and I get much better rest at night. There is nothing like spending an hour or three hitting people and/or pads to blow of steam. The exercise is great, and the friendly competition of sparring lets you get all of your tension out of your system and release pent up frustration. I also found that going to the shooting range and doing some target practice can relieve stress. Shooting firearms (or even a bow) accurately forces you to concentrate on your target and technique to the point of pushing other concerns to the back of your mind. Pulling the trigger or releasing the arrow, and then being rewarded with hitting the target gives you a bit of satisfaction....

Q: 

I have recently been exploring preventative methods regarding BC. My mother had a mastectomy one year ago, her sister 7 years and also their two aunts (one of which did not survive). All of the females in our family have Fibrocystic Breast Disease which makes exams quite grueling. I am 36 years and a single mom to my three year old son. My OB noticed a lump last year which lead to my first mammogram/sonogram. Both tests were inconclusive. I followed this with a needle biopsy and then a core biopsy. These tested negative. I recently went for my annual and another mammogram and found the same issues. I have an extremely dense ''ridge'' of tissue in my right breast. This concerns me as this is the same breast/area that the BC in my family originated. I am extremely concerned about the future. I was not aware until tonight that there was a Skin Sparing Mactectomy and feel somewhat relieved knowing that that is a possibility. I did come across one website that stated that there are certain cases where the nipple can also be saved. Do you know if this is true? Also, I am very small... 5 ft, 100 lbs (on a heavy day)and a 34C. I am concerned that I do not have anough tummy for this surgery. Is it possible to have a SMS with implants? Also, I live in upstate NY. Any recommendations?

A: consider coming to us. we do this a lot... and yes, skin sparing mastectomy with implants is very doable... along with consideration for nipple and areola sparing too. call 443-287-2778 and have chanel schedule you with breast surgical oncologist and a breast plastic surgeon....

Q:
