Breast Density cannot be felt by touch or self exam.
Breast Density can only be assessed and measured by Mammogram.
Your radiologist should inform your Dr if you have Dense Breasts, this however is not always passed on to patients.
If you have Dense Breasts you need to know. If you have high Breast Density you should supplement your Mammogram with ultrasound and MRI
Having dense breast tissue has nothing to do with the size of your breasts. Big or small breasts can be Dense so you need to ASK and know your Breast Density.
Dense tissue can mask tumors on a mammogram.
