Afterall, my previous mammograms were negative, and nothing was ever detected on breast
exam. But in
February, I had a cancerous breast
tumor removed, which my surgeon said was probably there 3-5 years. It was very deep, right near my chest wall. Thus, it never showed on a mammogram. This time however, since I actually felt a lump, they kept shoving me into the instrument until it actually showed up...right on the very edge of the film.
