    It's so difficult to say what is "normal" as everyone's breast fluctuate. The mammogram will be helpful, and will let you know if you need any additional testing/examination (and here is hoping there isn't!). Anyway, please keep us posted!

    Anytime we find new changes in our breasts we should get them evaluated. Most lumps, bumps, dimples, indents, and rashes turn out to be benign, especially in young people. The older we get, the higher our risk for all types of cancer.

    I suggest you call your doctor tomorrow for an examination (don't go to the emergency room for this, they're not really set up for checking breasts). He/she will probably want to get an ultrasound or mammogram to check things out. Good luck. Let us know how it goes.

    hi Marie.

    Glad to hear your mammogram went well this morning! Yes, from what I know, you should definitely be getting register breast exams if there is history in your family. Do you know if she got a genetic profile done
