Are You Dense?

Have you been told you have dense breasts? Do you know what this means? These are important questions to ask if you have had a mammogram. The “dense” refers to your breast density.

Women with dense breasts are at a 3-5x higher risk for developing breast cancer (unknown why) and have a 50% reduced sensitively to mammography to detect breast cancer.

I have extremely dense breast tissue. Even though I could feel my tumor, it was not detectable on a mammogram. Know your body, ask questions, advocate for your life✨
