Black Male Breast Cancer – an up close look at my mastectomy This is a real upclose look at my mastectomy wound not long after surgery. The whole right side of my chest was numb so the pain was minimal. Natural medicine was a huge help in the healing and treatment of the surgical scar. Some say MBC is rare...But i'm proof that it is on the rise. I stopped drinking alcohol and made big changes to my diet. I am practicing Tai Chi and Yoga as well. Positive Thought and Music or Art Therapy also are helpful.
