Iowa's breast density inform law was signed by Governor Branstad on April 13, 2017 with an effective date of November 15, 2017. Information regarding breast density will now be included in the mammogram result letter 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.
