Comments for this study:

C Edwards (2 years ago):

I must be in that .06%. Had a nasty sinus infection that was not abated by antibiotics x2 so was prescribed Prednisone. Approx 30-45 days after my treatment finished (and my sinus infection was cured) my OB/GYN found a lump in my chest "the size of a golfball" during a routine breast exam. Underwent many tests and finally had a referral to an Oncologist. He took one look at test results and asked me if I'd recently been on Prednisone, that I had no worries with cancer, but I did have costocondritis and that I shouldn't worry. His office visit took maybe 5 minutes.
