breast cancer cells touched my skin
Hi,

While working with a culture of breast cancer cells (cell line), I felt liquid in on of the gloves. I think that although I didn't see any holes in the glove, there was probably some way for the media with these cells to touch my finger directly.
I sprayed ethanol, changed gloves and a few minutes after that I washed hands very thoroughly with soap.
Later that day I also put some bleach on that finger.
I just wanted to ask whether this exposure could be dangerous for me (cause cancer)?
Thank you very much!

Hello,

No, the type of exposure that you describe in your posting does not place you at increased risk of cancer.
