Customer Question

Hello Dr David - I'm convinced there is a bigger more stuck out rib on the right side of my sternum much more than the left. Does this sound like breast cancer to you? Could there be a lump underneath pushing this out more? How can I tell if it's a bigger
rib which sticks out more or a breast cancer tumour on thhe rib? Pleae can you reassure me it's nothing serious as I'm v worried and can't sleep for the last 3 days

This is Dr. David
thanks for leaving positive feedback for the last question I helped you with
your rib on one side doesn't sound like breast cancer.
it sounds like your anxiety is out of control on this
it is normal to have asymmetry on one side compared to the other.
this is not a sign of breast cancer.
what you need is to see your doctor to get better treatments for your anxiety symptoms
let me know if you have questions.
