    I agree with Sharon on both counts. MRI is usually the way to go for women with dense breast tissue. AND listen to your gut. There was something that told me to pursue something I thought was off. Trust your instinct!

      Nancy, I hope for your sake this all turns out to be nothing. You have a very strong survival instinct and I applaud you for relieving your worry by asking for a more in depth test. For my own peace of mind, I have an MRI each year... six months...

      Nancy, I hope for your sake this all turns out to be nothing. You have a very strong survival instinct and I applaud you for relieving your worry by asking for a more in depth test. For my own peace of mind, I have an MRI each year... six months after my mammogram. Please keep us posted, I will be waiting to hear how it turns out. Blessings, Sharon

      My Dr. Also suggested the MRI because of dense breast. I have been having breast pain close to 3 months.

      I would go with your doctor's suggestion. Get an MRI. It is tough to get a diagnosis with dense breast tissue. MRI will help show any breast cancer that might be hiding out in that dense tissue. My breast cancer was missed because of dense breast tissue. When I had an MRI, it lit up like a light bulb! Get one ASAP! Take care, Sharon

    Hi Nancy, I agree with Sharon & Erin. If you still feel something is wrong...don't hesitate to get more evaluation. An MRI will detect what a mammogram & ultrasound miss. My cancer was undetected even though I was diligent in getting my mammos with ultrasounds. It can happen ...and does happen much too often!!!! Hugs to you and I hope all is well.

    I would request an MRI. I know you are probably going to get a few other suggestions for other diagnostics... but the MRI was the one that really showed my breast cancer in it's full glory. I was also given a clean bill of health after 15 mammograms (YES... 15) and an ultrasound. My breast was also very dense and they couldn't really get a clear shot. 7 months later i felt a lump in my breast that turned out to be invasive ductal cancer a 2.2 cm tumor staged 2B with one positive node. I want to commend you for pursuing this further. My breast also felt funny and I had odd sensations but I just went along with what the doctor said.... "It was ok." When your gut is whispering something to you.... listen. Please follow through with your suspicions. Take care, and please keep us posted. Sharon
