Breast Density Notification Laws - Illinois

Article

Information about Illinois' proposed breast density notification legislation.

Proposed recipient: Patients with dense breasts. 

Proposed notification text: “Your mammogram shows that your breast tissue is dense. Dense breast tissue is very common and is not abnormal. However, dense breast tissue can make it harder to find cancer on a mammogram and may also be associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. This information about the result of your mammogram is given to you to raise your awareness. Use this information to talk to your doctor about your own risks for breast cancer. At that time, ask your doctor if more screening tests might be useful, based on your risk. A report of your results was sent to your physician.”

Proposed legislation: HB 3765
