Breast Density 101

What You Should be Asking

If you think you might be at risk and would like to speak to your doctor, here are some conversation starters or questions you can use.

1

I have heard that having dense breasts is a risk factor for breast cancer. Has my breast density been reported on any of my previous mammograms? If not, can you request this information when you refer me for my next mammogram?

2

If my mammogram report shows that I have dense breasts, what screening approach would you recommend?

3

I have heard that having dense breasts makes it more difficult to see breast cancers on standard mammograms. Would a 3D mammography exam, MRI or ultrasound be better for me?
