: My biopsies were all negative.
: 2 yrs. ago.
: 2 subsequent mammo's fine, u/s fine.
: Worry
: Help!
: Any legitimate advice, would appreciate!
: GailD.
i don't think you have to worry. i have never read a study with a correlation between breast reduction and cancer. i would imagine you do have a lot of scar tissue and your doctor is just being cautious because it is hard for him to do an accurate breast exam. your risk should be no higher than anyone else.
