Hi. My name is Marian and I have dense breast tissue. Apparently, this isn’t uncommon. Unfortunately, like my waistline and my brain, it’s getting more dense with age (thanks again, Age), which makes mammograms less useful than they might be. Cancers can sneak and hide behind dense tissue and just squat there like Chucky dolls waiting to jump out and go Boo!
So my doctor has scheduled me to see an oncologist tomorrow. He’ll decide what, if anything, to do next.
Here’s a link to a site I just turned up and may be haunting for a while, the awesomely named Are You Dense? You’re welcome.
I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about an instant and oh-so-good dessert.
