    That means you need other diagnostic tests because mammogram does not show the cancer lesion when the breast is dense. Your next tesh should be ultrasound because it is safe, does not use radiation and not costly. The best quality of whole breast ultrasound is obtained by automated breast ultrasound (ABUS). You can get more information about the superiority of ABUS to mammogram by visiting the web site below www.vipbreastimaging.com

      But it does not always mean cancer. My mother in law's breast are dense and they did an ultrasound and thank goodness she didn't have cancer. They have a harder time seeing through dense tissue. Right?
