What could a tumor feel like?


What if we had a visual to help us understand what a tumor could feel like-like this one?

For me, it would have helped! I had no idea- If we can share this visual as much as possible we can at least educate people/ women to get a sense of what a tumor could feel like! How are we supposed to know this? Please share!

Dr. Julie Reiland, a breast surgeon for over 20 years carries a small jagged rock in her pocket to show women who ask what could a tumor feel like. “The stone I carry is 1 cm smaller than the length of a dime. One centimeter is about the smallest cancer that can be felt with a breast exam.” If you notice anything different make sure you go to your doctor and be an advocate for yourself!
