    cont) I used to do mammograms and know dense breast tissue can hide things. Mine have always been very dense and my one that remains is still 50-75% dense breast tissue. It makes me wonder how they saw the 2 cancerous areas they saw 2 years ago but thankfully (in some ways) they did. I know I asked when we were injecting the local for the first biopsy if my dense tissue could have obscured it from being seen earlier and the Radiologist wasn't sure as they compared them back for at least 3 years. I was hoping now that I'm 64 it would have decreased some but that's not the case (in mine anyway).
