Where to Find Hair Loss Accessories and Breast Cancer Products

Cancer treatments can cause major changes in the way you look – like surgery that removes part or all of your breast, or the chemo that makes your hair fall out. Treatment can also cause major changes in how you feel about your body – your body image. For some people, this is a very tough time and these changes can be hard to get used to. Some of the companies listed here have products that can help you get back a sense of yourself and help you feel better by looking better. Sometimes you can do this by wearing an attractive turban or finding a comfortable breast form that looks natural and feels secure.

If you’ve had all or part of a breast removed, when your doctor says you’re ready, you should be fitted with a breast form or prosthesis (pros-thee-sis). Breast prostheses are breast forms that are put inside a bra to make your breasts look natural and balanced. They can be used in regular bras or mastectomy bras. Mastectomy bras have pockets inside that help keep the breast form in place and have a comfortable backing behind the form. You should wear whatever bra you find most comfortable. Keep in mind that the best isn’t always the most expensive.

For more information about specific products, contact your local American Cancer Society office, our National Cancer Information Center at 1-800-227-2345, or the company that sells the product.
