I have dense breast tissue. The first time I had a mammo & the tech came & told me I had to come back in & do an ultra sound, I was freaking out. Turned out, I just had dense breast tissue.
My PS had me have a mammo before my BA, & I was told by the tech, that having implants doesn't make it any more difficult to read, than not. Not sure if that's a matter of opinion, or not...Lol. When I told my gyno, she said, no worries, it actually made it easier to feel for lumps when the implant is under the muscle, since your real breast tissue will be pushed forward. Idk if most doc's feel the same, or not.
