3D 41% better: 3D allows radiologist to "see through" the normal breast structures and uncovers 41% more cancers. Also, 3D allows a 15-30% decrease in recalls sparing many anxiety and lost time. 3D still requires compression and increases radiation but negligibly and it is still of paramount importance to come every year beginning at age 40.

Not necessary.: Your breast tissue density on mammography of 25-50% is not considered "dense". Women with dense tissue density on mammography (greater than 50%) which slightly elevates the risk of breast cancer and, more importantly, makes it harder to detect cancer are advised to have a discussion with their doctors about further imaging options.

You're overdue : It may be somewhat uncomfortable but tolerable and well worth it. Mammography has decreased breast cancer mortality by up to 50%. If you get one every year rather than every other your chances of dying from breast cancer go down 30%. 20% of cancers are in women in their 40's. What have you been waiting for?
