Learn the Facts about Dense Breasts
- Having dense breasts is not an abnormal condition; in fact, nearly half of all women over 40 have dense breasts. Learn about the diagnosis, causes, and proper screening methods for women with dense breast tissue.
Am I at Risk? There’s No Family History.
- Learn the truth. While women who have a family history of breast cancer are in a higher risk group, most women who have breast cancer have no family history. Dr. Avice O’Connell will discuss the reasons why family history isn’t always that important.
