Dense or fatty breasts?
How do you tell the difference without a mammogram? I'd pinch in some areas to see if I can find fat but I don't. I have a large bust and when I pinch, I feel something like veins which I guess are really glands or something, not fat. Feels like I have veins or glands everywhere and no fat! When I pinch, that hurt as if whatever I'm pinching have nerve endings and fat have no nerve endings, right? That's not normal for large breasts, is it?

Re: Dense or fatty breasts?
You can not pinch dense breasts...only a mammogram will pick this up. Its the tissue under the skin which is dense- thus hard to read on a mamo...

What you are feeling is skin, not tissue.
