Dense breasts tied to TNBC in postmenopausal women
Dense breasts were associated with larger, high-grade, and estrogen-negative tumors, according to research online in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The study used data from the Nurses' Health Study on 121,701 female nurses who have been followed for more than 20 years.
Once again, I do not meet the criteria--my breasts are far enough from dense to be a little pathetic. Still, the disease found me.
