This study will examine behavioral and psychological outcomes of breast density notification using a 3-group randomized design comparing usual written notification to two educationally enhanced approaches.


This is a 3-group randomized clinical trial to compare usual care to two educationally enhanced approaches to breast density notification. Usual care involves sending written notification along with the mammogram report; all women will receive usual care. In addition, some women will receive written educational materials about breast density, with or without interaction with a promotora (culturally congruent health educator). Study outcomes include short and long term assessments of psychological (anxiety, knowledge) and behavioral (continued mammography screening, discussion with primary care provider) outcomes. The study also includes qualitative inquiry and a cost analysis.

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)

Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.

Tumors or cancer of the human BREAST.

The phosphoprotein encoded by the BRCA1 gene (GENE, BRCA1). In normal cells the BRCA1 protein is localized in the nucleus, whereas in the majority of breast cancer cell lines and in malignant pleural effusions from breast cancer patients, it is localized mainly in the cytoplasm. (Science 1995;270(5237):713,789-91)
