GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) On June 1, 2015 women across the state of Michigan will begin to receive notifications of breast density in their mammogram results. The bill opens the door for women to have further discussions with their doctors about their breast density.
Dense breast tissue can ultimately hide cancer on a mammogram. Women with dense tissue need to have conversations with their primary care physicians about their density. If you receive a notification that you have dense tissue here are some important questions to ask your doctor.
