I started menopause at 39 years old and was told by my GYN that the longer you are in menopause the less dense your breast become. My breast are getting denser every year and I don't understand why. My Mom and Sister are both breast cancer survivors and I worry every year when I go for my Mammogram because I am just not sure they are seeing everything. I end up getting an ultrasound every year as they quite frankly just can't see through the density. I have been told by the Radiologist that it wouldn't be a bad idea for me to have breast MRI's. I have had 3 biopsies on my breast and all showed cysts. What are your thoughts on my situation. Thank you for being available for us women.View Thread
