Dense Breast Tissue

What additional kind of screening has anyone done when you have dense breast tissue? What exactly is dense breast tissue?

I have a friend that just got diagnosed with a rare type of breast cancer and she always has gotten her annual mammogram because her mother is a breast cancer survivor. They told her she has dense breast tissue and a lot of times a regular mammogram won't show any abnormalities. Here is a website that talks about dense breast tissue. http://ww5.komen.org/Breastcancer/Highbreastdensityonmammogram.html
Hope it helps!! Take care of yourself:)
