 "My doctor said I'M DENSE" DENSE BREASTS" Remind=A-Band Wristband

 

Get this band. Wear it if you have dense breasts and until you get the correct imaging. Wear it if you don't yet know if you do and until you find out. Wear it to be part of the dense breasts conversation.

 

The problem in a nutshell:

Four of every ten women getting a routine screening mammogram for breast cancer have dense breasts that can make seeing their cancer impossible. Many of these women, however, are told their mammogram is normal.

Why?

Because cancer can hide behide the tissue that makes breasts dense look dense and the radiologist has to say 'no cancer was seen'. That's a lot different than saying it is normal, isn't it?

Look to the right and see how Mary is  told by a card in the mail her mammogram "appears to be normal"  but her doctor is told she has dense breasts, something Mary wasn't told!

NO ONE TOLD MARY SHE NEEDED DIFFERENT IMAGING!

 DON'T BE MARY, GET YOUR RESULTS!
