Not so difficult to: It is not difficult to tell the cause of your pain. If you have good insurance, then your doctor can order tests besides doing a good examination of your breast by physical exam and mammography. Bone scan is a good test to make sure that your bones are free of cancer. Please discuss these options with your doctor and get over this anxiety!
