CMAJ Article Questions Effectiveness of Density Disclosure
An article in the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ), “Breast density disclosure may do more harm than good,” drew powerful responses from Dr. Paula Gordon, DB-I Medical Advisory Board member and Volunteer Advisor for Dense Breasts Canada, and Dr. Martin Yaffe, Research Scientist at University of Toronto, Ontario Institute for Cancer Research. DB-I applauds them both for their responses that effectively highlights the implications of dense breasts and addresses concerns about the need for women to be aware of their density status.
