Surgical Oncology (BREAST CANCER) with Dr. Donna-Marie Manasseh


(Bonus: I bleeped the curse words so you can share this episode with your co-workers and my parents.)

Yes, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month but Dr. Donna-Marie Manasseh spends 12 months a year as a tumor hunter, saving lives. She is brilliant, uplifting, hilarious and a hero, quite honestly. She sat down in her Brooklyn office to talk about prevention, diagnosis, prognosis, when to get screened, what to do if you feel something weird, how to look forward to mammograms, how men can help family members stay informed, self-care and how she unwinds. Also: getting help with boob honkery, and rubbing rocks on your pits. This episode might be required listening for literally ... everyone. All the people.

Dr. Donna-Marie Manasseh is the Chief of Breast Surgery at Maimonides Medical Center
