    Norma is right about following your gut feeling. Four years ago I found a lump and got a mammogram. Nothing showed up on mammo but a biopsy proved my concern was valid. In february of this year I found a lump under my arm that doctor pooh poohed as nothing. I insisted on further testing and had 9 positive nodes removed 2 wks later Listen to your gut and be your own best advocate. It's your body.

    You can check your breast often, get mamo when you should and if anything feels funny such as in my case just a funny feeling....let your Dr. Know!
