WPXI-TV: Dense Breasts and Cancer Risk

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Women with so-called "dense breasts" face a higher risk of breast cancer, and in addition, the dense tissue may make it harder to detect cancer on a mammogram. A proposed law would require doctors in Pennsylvania to tell women if they have dense breasts. Dr. William Poller, Director of Breast Imaging at West Penn Allegheny Health System, talked to WPXI-TV about the issues surrounding dense breasts, and his recommendations on when women might want to consider pursuing additional testing beyond a mammogram.
