Dense Breast LegislationImportant legislation regarding Dense Breast Tissue Screening, sponsored by Senator Bob Mensch, has passed the PA Senate Public Health and Welfare Committee.  We need YOUR help to make sure it becomes law in Pennsylvania.

Senate Bill 358 would require radiologists to alert patients who have dense breast tissue and to offer those patients alternative screening options.  Dense breast tissue increases a woman’s risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer at a late stage. Many women with dense breast tissue do not know they have it and, if they do, a mammogram may not be enough to detect a lump or irregularity in the breast. By asking your local Senator to vote “Yes” to Senate Bill 358, you can make sure that changes.
