    Breast Injury and Cancerous Tissue
    bcantor posted:
    Hello. My name is Miss Cantor and I'm a junior at a high school in West Palm Beach, Florida. Currently, I am doing an independent research project on the correlation between an injury to the breast and breast cancer. At Race For The Cure in West Palm Beach, I surveyed approximately 100 breast cancer survivors. Out of the 100 people I asked, I had a 32% response rate. I am in need of more survey results. The survey is strictly for women who have or had breast cancer. It is completely voluntary and anonymous; no identifying data will be used for the study. Tissue change from a traumatic injury in the breast may increase the risk of obtaining breast cancer (REF). Your completion of this survey will help me quantify whether or not an injury to the breast can be a plausible risk factor to developing breast cancer. Additionally, I may also be able to increase the likelihood of women obtaining mammograms post injury. The link to the survey is below. Please, if you have ever had an injury to your breast, complete the survey or forward to someone you know who has had a minor (punch-like injury to the breast) to severe injury (seat belt trauma). Thank you for your time and help in furthering my research!

    If you are interested in the research results feel free to contact me
