Thank God we have two breasts!

Why do I say that? Yikes, can you imagine, as a patient, undergoing a multi-breast mammography, or, as the radiologist, having to read more images for every screening patient? And what if there’s an odd number of breasts and they do not all look similar? How can we tell what is normal for that particular woman?
