Are You Dense
The website are you dense helps women understand why it is important to find out your breast density from your mammogram and what to do if you have dense breasts. Women with dense breasts can be at a higher risk for breast cancer because cancer may be masked in dense breast tissue. If you are dense a breast MRI or a full breast ultrasound may be done in addition to your yearly mammogram. Currently there has been a law passed that requires the radiologist to report on breast density in their mammogram results.
Be Brilliant. Be Bold. Be Bright Pink.
This website is a great resource for peer support and outreach groups. Bright pink is the only national non-profit organization focusing on the prevention and early detection of breast cancer and ovarian cancer in young women while providing support for high risk individuals.
More Than October
This website is one woman’s personal story about her breast cancer journey. The website wants women to commit to getting a mammogram and to do their monthly self breast exams. This woman describes her journey and encourages the reader to share a “postcard” with their family, friends, co-workers etc. You can send it by social media, e-mail or simply print it out. She also has many other links that are great for cancer patients and women’s health in general.
My Support 360
The website My Support 360 is a website sponsored by the genetic company Myriad. This website helps you determine if you are at high risk for cancer and would benefit from screening/testing. On this site you can take a quiz to determine if you are at an increased risk for breast, ovarian, uterine, colon and pancreatic cancers. There are details about genetic testing processes and how to find a facility that offers it. This is a great site to encourage people to be more proactive about their health.
