In partnership with Ascension St. Vincent, here is information that you might find useful.

Breast cancer awareness: Why breast density matters

Regular mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early. But, if your mammogram report says you have dense breast tissue – you may wonder what this means.

According the American College of Radiology, dense breast tissue is found in almost 40 percent of women and is a completely normal finding. Breasts are made up of a mixture of fibrous and glandular tissue and fatty tissue. Breasts are considered dense if there is a lot of fibrous or glandular tissue but not much fat.

If your mammogram shows that you have dense breast tissue, talk to your Ascension St. Vincent provider to determine the best screening options for you based on your family history and other risk factors. Additional screening options may include:

  • Whole-breast ultrasound
  • Abbreviated Breast MRI (AB-MRI)
  • 3D Mammograms

This health tip is provided by Ascension St.Vincent. Schedule an appointment online, anytime at GetStVincentCare.com.
