Breast Density, a Contralateral Breast Cancer indicator

Research published reports that “The study, “Mammographic breast density is associated with the development of contralateral breast cancer,” is one of the first to describe the association between breast density and risk of cancer in the non-cancerous breast. It was published in the journal Cancer.

Know your breast density. Ask at your next mammogram. Insist on the answer.  If you don’t ask you may not be told.

In Ireland women are not given information regarding their breast density. Tag and tell a woman you know……it might just be her key to early detection.
