“I would feel pain if I had breast cancer, so I don’t need a checkup.”
Early breast cancer is not painful at all 90% of the time, so you can’t rely on the presence of pain to tell if you have cancer. Mammograms and self-‐exams are vital for detecting cancer. If you do have breast pain, chances are it isn’t breast cancer.
