Women's Health

It is that time of year again, when I get my yearly mammogram.  Last year I had a couple cyst show up that gave me a scare. This year they are still there, but no change which is a good thing. Mine are just liquid, nothing to worry about.

I watched a video that talked about breast tissue density. I have dense breast tissue so this is important to me and I gives me more questions to ask my doctor.  I do not know the density of my breasts, but plan to ask my doctor on my next visit.  I strongly suggest that you look into finding out where you fall on the density scale. 

I have a history of breast cancer on both sides of my family, aunts, cousins, and great aunts. 
I am passing this list of videos on cancer because they touched a nerve with me and I hope that it touches one with you. One of them in particular talks about breast density.

 All women need to be on the lookout for changes in their breasts and to have their yearly mammograms.  Please take the time to watch these videos and remember to call and schedule your yearly mammogram.
