Breast Density Awareness

  • Aired: 05/17/2012

  • Rating: NR
Increased awareness has helped women detect breast cancer earlier, yet many are unaware that dense breast tissue can lower mammography sensitivity leaving cancer unnoticed. Lawmakers have introduced legislation that would mandate mammography reports to clearly indicate dense tissue so follow up measures can be taken. Also, Congressman Paul Tonko talks about his 3rd trip aboard Air Force One.
