Women with fibrocystic breasts often have lumpy breast tissue that makes it hard to identify lumps that are significant.  Fibrocystic and glandular tissue can be soft or hard depending on the hormonal cycle. SureTouch determines the hardness of tissue and compares it with surrounding tissue, and identifies masses that are abnormal and not part of the fibrocystic lumpiness.  Sometimes patients with hard, lumpy tissue have a SureTouch exam and are asked to return in two weeks for a second exam; a second exam will allows SureTouch to identify lumps that are the result of hormonal changes, and masses that require a diagnostic test.
