Each month, we ask a breast cancer expert to respond to your questions on a specific topic during an ask-the-expert residency. Answers to select questions will be posted to our website on an ongoing basis throughout the month.


The topic for the month of May is:


Body Image



If you have questions about strategies for dealing with the impact of your changing body, what kinds of reactions to physical differences are common or how body image can impact intimacy, ask our expert, Barbara Musser, using the form below.


While we make an effort to answer as many questions as we can, we are unable to respond to all questions submitted. Ms. Musser will answer questions on an ongoing basis throughout May; check back for updates.


If you have an urgent question or would like to speak with someone by phone, please call our Breast Cancer Helpline at (888) 753-LBBC (5222).
