    You know, that's a darn good idea!!!

    Early detection is the best way to treat any cancer.

    Now, all you concerned fellows here on the board: Who's up for creating a mobile breast testing unit consisting of all the great men on FirearmsTalk???

    You can sign me up. I may even be able to fashion a decent vehicle, maybe the "Mammary Wagon".

    Breast cancer is a nasty disease and I wish we could eliminate it. But even more than that, I wish we could be honest about how few women die from breast cancer relative to other diseases. To see what I mean, take a look at these statistics from the CDC:

    CDC - Breast Cancer Statistics

    From all the pink ribbons you see around, you'd think breast cancer was the biggest killer for women. In reality, it's dwarfed by heart disease.

    A friend of mine got breast cancer and HE almost died from it. His wife found it one day when she ran her hand over his chest, if they had ignored it he probably wouldn't be here now.
