Hello, I'm 22 and have dense breast tissue Ever since
Patient :Hello, I'm 22 and have dense breast tissue. Ever since I started developing breasts at 12 I was worried about the lumps in them. I've gotten them checked out when I went in for my first pap smear a year ago and the nurse practitioner said that they are normal and there's nothing to worry about. But still I worry. What age do you suggest I should start getting a mammogram done? I don't have a history of any cancer in my family.
