Mammography Changes May Be Coming, Including More Information About The Risks Of Dense Tissue

Mammogram centers could soon be required to give women more information about how dense breast tissue can increase their risk of cancer, under proposed rules from the Food and Drug Administration.

The new rules would update the Mammography Quality Standards Act of 1992.

The Show spoke more about that with Dr. Lora Hebert, a surgical breast oncologist at the University of Arizona in Phoenix at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
