NEW YORK - New York is the latest state to pass a law that has some people calling it lifesaving, while others say it is unnecessary.
The state passed legislation that gives women more details about their mammograms. It says healthcare providers must notify women if their breasts are dense, so they can discuss extra screening options with their doctors.
Recent cases have surfaced and show dense breast tissue can cloud X-rays and makes it harder to spot tumors.
So far, only four states have passed this legislation.
