So You’re Saying There’s a Chance?

“So what is the likelihood that I will have breast cancer?” If you read my previous post, you already know that I have been jumping through the healthcare hoops to receive genetic testing. Although I was professional during my interview with my counselor, what my vain self really was asking is “How likely is it that my boobs will have to be removed one day?”

Her answer was statistically simplistic, “Mandy, as it stands now, and if your mother’s genetic test is negative, you have a 28% chance of developing breast cancer in your life. These statistics are generated from…” I had checked out at that point. 28%? Hmmm? I wonder what this really means? In my quest for answers, I went to a very close friend of mine, Google Search and here is what I’ve found:

  1. 28% of adults have not read a book in the last year,
  2.  28% of words are read on an average web page (593 words),
  3. 28% of people believe secretive, power elite, with a globalist agenda, are conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian world government,
  4. 28% of all vehicle collisions are rear-ends,
  5. 28% of people admit to participating in malicious online activity directed at somebody they didn’t know,
  6. 28% of IT professionals hide their career from family and friends out of fear of being asked to provide free tech support.

Although I’m still awaiting the fate of my boobs, I have reached some conclusions:

  1. I’m not alone,
  2. Most of you will miss the context of this post,
  3. 100% of those closest to me are in good company,
  4. I am solely responsible for the inflation of this statistic in 2015,
  5. I need the definition of “malicious” before commenting,
  6. Trust nobody
