Studies have long shown an increased risk of breast cancer in women whose breasts are considered “dense,” or less fatty. A new study suggest that denser breast tissue does not increase the risk of a women developing breast cancer and does not increase her risk of dying from breast cancer should she develop it.
The study was published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
