Approximately Half Of Women With Dense Breasts May Have A Low Risk Of Developing Cancer

The New York Times (5/19, Grady, Subscription Publication) reports that research published in Annals of Internal Medicine “offers help to patients and” physicians “who are trying to deal with mammogram results that many women consider troubling and confusing: the finding of ‘dense’ breast tissue.”

 TIME (5/19, Park) reports that approximately “half of the women in the study with dense breasts turned out to have low risk of developing cancer.” Among those “with higher risk,” just “24% would have benefited from additional screening such as having an MRI or ultrasound.” Reuters (5/19, Doyle) and Medscape (5/19, Skwarecki) also cover the story.
