HI. When there is no lump , there is no need to worry.
The dense breast s due to no children , hence not affected by the physiological changes at all.
You can be assured if there is no lump in the breasts.
Please continue your regular check-up.

There will be no symptoms unless there is going to a disease of the breasts.
