Dense Breasts, 44 yr old.

Updated: Apr 6, 2022

Our client came for Body Inc.'s Breast Health Program.

She had a scare when she was told to repeat her mammogram as it was difficult to tell her scan results due to dense breasts. Her mother had died of cancer so there is a family history of the illness. There are 4 types of breasts. Hers are in the densest category, which may mean a higher risk of cancer. Thankfully, she was cleared after the mammogram.

However, she thought it was better to come and do some breast health maintenance with treatments that can unclog lymph nodes and improve circulation.

When circulation is not excellent, breasts may sag easily.

Better circulation also allows nutrients to be brought to nourish the breasts. This also helps to lift breasts for better shape and size. If you feel lumps or pain when you massage the sides of breasts, you may want to look into your emotions or dietary habits.

Women experiencing prolonged negative emotions such as anger, anxiety, nervousness, and apprehension may suppress ovulation in their ovaries, thus leading to the decrease of progesterone and increase of oestrogen which may lead to hormonal imbalance and lumps in the breasts. Prevention is better than cure.

The 4 levels of breasts density are...

A: Almost entirely fatty indicates that the breasts are almost entirely composed of fat. About 1 in 10 women has this result.

B: Scattered areas of fibroglandular density indicate that there are some scattered areas of density, but the majority of the breast tissue is non-dense. About 4 in 10 women have this result.

C: Heterogeneously dense indicates that there are some areas of non-dense tissue, but that the majority of the breast tissue is dense. About 4 in 10 women have this result.

D: Extremely dense indicates that nearly all of the breast tissue is dense. About 1 in 10 women has this result.
