New York now has a breast density law

The radiologist didn't recognize my face, but I knew what would trigger her memory.

"Remember me, really dense breast tissue lady?"

She lit up with recognition.

Apparently I had some of the densest breast tissue this side of the Mississippi. Getting a wire in me was an exceptional ordeal.

I believe my surgeon said dealing with my breasts was like "sawing into concrete."

New York State now has a new law requiring mammogram patients to be told if they have dense tissue. The density can make mammograms less conclusive and indicate higher risk.

I know women who fought for this bill, one who believes she might not have metastatic disease had she  been warned.

It's a done deal.
