Breast Density Notification Laws - Washington

May 14, 2014

Information about Washington's 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 common but can make it harder to evaluate the results of your mammogram. Adult women of all ages are encouraged to perform a monthly breast self-exam. This information about your mammogram results is given to you to raise your awareness and to inform your conversations with your primary care provider. A report of your results was sent to your primary care provider." 

Proposed legislation: SB 6050
