Finding the perfect bra is difficult enough, but if you have a smaller cup size, it can seem impossible.

Screening mammograms can also find microcalcifications tiny deposits of calcium that sometimes indicate the presence of breast cancer.
Breasts contain glandular, connective, and fat tissue. Breast density is a term that describes the relative amount of these different types of breast tissue as seen on a mammogram.

Dense breast tissue cannot be felt in a clinical breast exam or in a breast self-exam.
