Mammogram and breast ultrasound

I am over 40 and my gynae sends me each year for a mammogram and breast ultrasound, but he still insists on checking my breasts himself, is this necessary as surely the mammogram and ultrasound are going to be far more accurate than him anyway.

Checking the breasts manually is important and should be done monthly by yourself. You will detect any changes early.
