Remember that, although you can discover your own breast lumps, only your doctor can determine accurately whether a lump is benign or malignant. An estimated 46, women and men died of breast cancer inin spite of treatment including surgical removal of the cancerous breast, lymph nodes, and in extreme cases ovaries. Upper outer quadrant of the right breast finding was consistent with most of the published studies in Western women [ 22 — 24 ], Eastern women [ 34 ], and Asian women [ 3536 ]. Another study applied a computer algorithm to align serial images from the same woman, and used an overlaid grid analysis to measure density in 1-cm squares on prediagnostic mammographic films, and estimated the odds of subsequently developed tumor in relation to its prediagnostic square-specific MD [ 21 ].
