What is breast density?

Breasts are made up of a mixture of different tissues.  Your breasts are considered dense if you have a lot of fibrous or glandular tissue, but not much fat.  Density may decrease with age, but there is little, if any, change in most women.  Density is determined by the radiologist who reads your mammogram, and the density is classified according to a standard 4-level scale.  Your doctor should be able to tell you whether you have dense breasts based on where you fall on the density scale.

Testimonials

Thank you is an inadequate phrase to express what I would like to say. Your well-trained eye picked up subtle changes in my mammogram that even my gynecologist thought “will probably turn out to be nothing." Unfortunately, this was not the case. I am not three weeks post mastectomy and considered to be cured! The biopsy you did detected the cancer so early there was no tissue or lymph invasion. Thank you for being a conscientious and detail specific doctor. I am grateful to God for your level of professionalism.
