Important News on Mammograms

News on Mammograms

Here is some important news on mammograms.  It pays to double check if breast cancer is suspected at all.
  • "Happygram” reveals the oft-ignored side of breast cancer screening with mammography — the fact that more often than not, it fails to identify cancer in women with dense breast tissue
  • 49 percent of women have high breast tissue density, and nearly 75 percent of dense-breasted women are at risk for a cancer being missed if they rely solely on mammography
  • Dense-breasted women are also up to six times more likely to develop breast cancer than women with less dense breasts
