    Who knows what clicks cells over from being normal to abnormal? When in doubt, I would fall on to the side of having an extra test to MAKE SURE, those cells haven't gone to "The Dark Side." I was misdiagnosed for 7 months because a doctor said I didn't meet the criteria for the extra testing. If you do end up with breast cancer, you want to catch it as soon as possible. Take care, Sharon

      I agree totally with Sharon. I went a full year and a half after a mammogram even when the lump could be felt and the breast looked different. I had doubts but didn't act on them. I was diagnosed Stage 2A finally.
