In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I chatted with my dear friend and Professor of Clinical Radiology at LSU Health New Orleans, Dr. Brooke Morell. I learned SOOOOOOO much!
Because I am not of the recommended age to start receiving annual mammograms, I had no clue what the process was like, nor was I aware of the next steps if there were to be an abnormal findings. I personally know several breast cancer survivors and 4 of them are under the suggested screening age of 40. So how do we protect and early detect before then? We discussed this and so much more! Like: how do breast implants impact your risks for breast cancer, if at all, we discussed breast cancer in men, and the many misconceptions about breast cancer. Plus we talked about Dr. Morell’s journey to becoming one of very few women, let alone women of color, in the field of radiology. She is indeed a woman creating waves and I am so proud to call her a friend of mine.
