October: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

[ 0 ] October 3, 2014 |

Along with the changing colors outside, the dropping temperatures, the increasing amount of football on TV and the pumpkins on doorsteps around the country comes a month that should always be recognized: breast cancer awareness month. It’s the time of year to put on your pink ribbons and educate yourself about breast cancer.

WATCH as Dr. Julie Silver shares tips on coping with breast cancer…


Back pain and neck pain become a big part of breast cancer. “When you’re diagnosed with breast cancer, you start worrying about everything. And then you become stressed about being stressed… Don’t worry about worrying.” The physical strain of breast cancer only make up a portion of the pain–a bigger, more noticeable pain is mental and psychological. While Dr. Silver explains that it’s very important to stay physically active, it’s important to do that with the right mindset.

Dr. Julie Silver is a doctor at Harvard Medical School and the Chief Editor of Books at Harvard Health Publications. Her recent book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Saying Goodbye to Back Pain, is available online.
