Hair Loss


Its OCTOBER! Also known as PINK Month EVERYWHERE!!

Virtual U @ TNS is bringing awareness to Breast Health but more importantly Breast Cancer and Hair Loss. YES! There is a connection that you may not believe.

Breast Cancer is a malignant type of Cancer cells that form in the tissues of the Breast. It's estimated that 1 in 8 women will develop Breast Cancer with no symptoms and its is estimated  42,170 women will die from breast cancer in the U.S. (nationalbreastcancer.org, 2020).

The causes of Breast Cancer is thought to be related to Genetics (family history), Environmental, Early Menstration, Late Menopause, Dense Breast Tissue (fatty tissues), Non-Cancerous cells. Non-Cancerous and Cancer cells can often produce changes in the body that can affect other parts of the body.

One of these changes is Hair Loss. Hair Loss is closely related to things that are happening within the body that may not be detectable like Breast Cancer. It isn't until hair loss becomes noticeable that concerns arise.

Because there are many factors that contribute to Hair Loss, I wanted to take this time to shed light on Breast Health (Cancer) and how it affects the hair growth cycle.

The best thing you can do is get educated about Breast Health and to remind your family and friends to get their yearly Mammogram. Prevention is a huge part in beating Breast Cancer.
