I know this is the funny thread, but one last thing on this serious subject: My mom's breast cancer was discovered by mammogram when it was still too small to feel. It was smaller than a dime, and they still chose to remove both breasts because that particular type spreads fast and can pop up later in the other breast. My point is that you want to catch it early in case it's an aggressive variety that spreads fast. Just saying.
