Dense Tissue

I just found out today that LAST year when I had my mamogram done there was dense tissue in my left breast so they're going to do a digital scan this time.

1) I got this information in a phone message
2) I was never told this before
3) Should I be worried? My Mom has dense tissue too
4) What's a digital scan?

Here is some information on digital mammography.


I hope this helps some.

Dense Tissue

I don't think it's anything to worry about. On my last mammogram, the results said that I had extremely dense breast tissue, so the sensitivity of a mammogram is limited. That is probably why a digital one is better for people like us. I have not had one, but maybe I should ask for it.

Update - had my digital mamo last week and have received my results, all is okay
