FDA Announces New Mammogram Standards for People With Dense Breasts – SheKnows

Women with dense breast tissue are more likely to develop breast cancer, yet most of us aren’t educated by our doctors about this risk factor.

Writing to United States Rep. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut, Klimczak said the FDA aims to “modernize” its breast cancer screening standards by requiring that healthcare providers “identify whether the patient has one of two categories of density (whether the patient has low or high density breasts) and include a prescribed paragraph on the significance of breast density.”
