Ladies please have a read of this and share with friends and family.
As we wave goodbye to 2017 it is appropriate for Irish women to continue to share global efforts on Breast Density. With continued patient advocacy efforts, 2018 could ensure that women will be informed of ALL the information in their mammogram report. Get to know your Breast Density level as determined by mammography. Breast density can mask a cancer tumour, therefore you may need to have an Ultrasound and or MRI.
In 2018 Irish women will increase pressure on our Health Minister, Mr Simon Harris, to introduce #Breastdensity inform protocols as standard.
I want a breast cancer screening program that is personalized based on the unique risks and personal preferences of women who choose to participate in screening.
