Beginning January 1, 2018 Iowa law will require that information regarding breast density be included in mammogram result letters mailed to the patient.
Having dense breast tissue puts one at an increased risk for breast cancer. Having dense breast tissue masks cancer on a mammogram making it difficult to detect.
Get involved - Help us spread awareness on breast density. Tell others, talk to your friends, family, and neighbors about the impact of breast density on screening mammography.
