Wisconsin Assembly Approves Dense Breast Tissue Notification Bill.

The AP (1/16) reports the Wisconsin Assembly has passed a bill Tuesday to require mammogram providers to notify female patients if they have dense breast tissue, which “supporters say...will help them make better health choices since it’s more difficult to detect cancerous tumors in women with dense breast tissue.” Through the legislation, providers must “give women a notice explaining that they have what is known as ‘dark tissue’ and they can talk with their doctor about whether they need additional cancer screening.” The bill will go to the state Senate.
