Breast Density 

Breast Density is determined through a women's mammogram. 

  • 40% of women age 40 and over have dense breasts 
  • Cancer is 4-6 times more likely in women with extremely dense breasts than women with fatty breasts. 

"Have dense breasts...now what?"

Do not worry. Dense breasts are normal.

Most women with dense breasts still won't get breast cancer. 

If you have dense breasts you need to have annual 3D mammogram with an ultrasound.
