A 47-year-old member asked:

Dr. Andrew Hoffman answered
34 years experience General Surgery
Years: Breast cancers are usually present for years before being found. They may produce a mass and no other symptoms until very advanced. This is part of the rational behind screening. If found when small, there is an excellent chance at a cure. If found after a long existence, cures are more difficult.
