In this episode you’re going to learn about a really important topic: pregnancy associated breast cancer and breast imaging in pregnancy and while lactating.
On today’s episode we have Dr. Kristin Robinson, a board certified radiologist specializing in breast imaging. She educates women about their breast health, including breast density and personal breast cancer risk to help them make informed decisions about breast cancer screening. Breast cancer in pregnancy is not common but it does happen; two patients have had it during my career.
Dr Robinson reached out to me because she learned some alarming statistics about breast cancer for women in their 30s and she felt like the podcast would be a great platform to share important information about breast cancer and breast imaging as it relates to pregnancy and younger women, and I agree!
In this Episode, You’ll Learn About:
- Why Dr. Robinson decided to switch specialties from surgery to radiology
- What pregnancy associated breast cancer is
- How common pregnancy associated breast cancer is
- What might cause pregnancy associated breast cancer
- Whether imaging during pregnancy is safe
- What the different types of breast imaging are
- What happens if you have a suspicious breast mass
- Why it’s important to advocate for yourself if you find anything concerning
