mass in your breast is NOT what young women
should fear since most lumps are not cancer.
Having a cancerous lump in your breast that you
don't know about IS what we should fear. In
women under 40, breast awareness or breast
self-exam and clinical breast exams are the only
ways that we can find breast cancer. But women
over 40 also need to be in touch with their
breasts since 20% of all breast cancers are not
detected on mammography."
