[+/-] My boobs are fine

Went for the mammogram and ultrasound.

She only did one view of my breasts, rather than the normal two, because I am too young and apparently breasts are really sensitive to radiation, so...

Anyway, the lump in the right breast could not be seen in the mammogram or the ultrasound, and the doctor said it was probably just some glandular tissue overlying a rib. However, they did pick up a small (3.2 mm) (most-likely) benign fibroadenoma in the left breast (too small to be felt manually).

If I get a chance (and access to a scanner), I will scan in both the mammogram X-rays and the ultrasound images... (hooray, I can display my breasts to the world!)
