Different Tests for Different Breasts
Ladies, yes, you are intelligent creatures. But “Are You Dense”? Even though public awareness of Breast Cancer has never been greater, a surprising 47-percent of women don’t know the answer to this question – in fact, they’ve never asked, or been asked. But the statistics on Breast Density are staggering: 40-percent of American women have dense breasts, and having dense breasts increases the likelihood of developing cancer by 4-6 times. Unfortunately, both dense breast tissue and cancerous growths show up white on a mammogram, which is why mammography may miss over 1/3 of cancers in dense breasts. Currently, the Invenia Automated Breast Ultrasound, or ABUS, is the only FDA-approved technology for dense breast screenings. Cancer shows up dark on ultrasound, and the automated ABUS. Join Breast Cancer Survivor and Advocate Dr. Rachel Brem for this potentially life-saving special report that helps raise public awareness on breast density, early breast cancer detection and early diagnosis.
