    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?

    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.
