yes, I have told you already that your prior mammogram and ultrasound would have looked at this area.
then you need to see a psychiatrist for you constant worry about this.
you might need to talk to a psychotherapist about your worries about having breast cancer.
that statement is a manifestation of your anxiety about breast cancer.
the vast majority 95% of all breast cancers are picked up on mammogram and ultrasound scans.
only a tiny percentage of breast cancers are found between mammograms and ultrasound scans.
yes, that is why yearly exams are recommended.
yes, I have said to you already, there is a minimal chance for cancer development now.
yes, your doctors have already looked there with mammogram and ultrasound.
there is not one right way to do self breast exam.
I recommend that you see your doctor and get annual mammograms and ultrasounds.
you shouldn't do self breast exams if it worsens your anxiety like this.
yes, let your doctor do your breast exam.
let your doctor do your breast exam annually.
you are feeling cysts in your breast which are benign.
yes, yearly mammogram.
no, it is not a big deal the change
sometimes mammograms and ultrasounds measure things slightly differently in size because your breast is compressed in mammogram.
yes, this is possible, those benign cysts can move.
