Customer Question

You confused me on your last comment. Youbsaidbwas a I could feel a pea size pop up? But then you said a cancer spot wouldn't pop up

This is Dr. David

the chances of a cancer spot popping up in the next month is one in a million changes.

sort of like lottery changes.

so you don't have to worry about having to try to feel one.

you asked me if you would be able to feel a new cancer pop up, and I said yes, you would

but the likelihood of one popping up is so small, you don't have to worry about it.

it would be safe for you to not do any self breast exams in a full year

and just get another mammogram and ultrasound next year.
