Create a Breast Density Inform Law - so women know how effective mammograms are for them
0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000.
Currently 30 States in America have passed a law stating that women having mammograms must be told about breast density. Tumours show up as white on a mammogram, so does dense breast tissue. If you have dense tissue it's like looking for a ball of cotton wool in a snowstorm. About 40% of women age 40 and over have dense breast tissue. Breast density is a well-established predictor of breast cancer risk. Mammography misses too many cancers in dense breasts.
