Cancer treatment can be overwhelming and brings immense psychological impact to some cancer survivors. Research studies have shown that more than a third of cancer patients struggled with adjusting to their life after cancer. Approximately one-third of cancer survivors reported having experienced prolonged negative moods such as depression and anxiety, even two years following the cancer treatment.
This is particularly true for breast cancer survivors, as changes in physical appearance following breast cancer treatment can take a drastic toll on their self-confidence and emotional well-being. Breast prosthesis can help them rebuild confidence by restoring the natural look and feel of their breasts and eases the discomfort associated with mastectomy and lumpectomy by relieving stiffness, numbness, and pain in the neck and shoulders. This in turn helps alleviate the adverse impact on their psychological health.
