Birads 5 score-scared
I just picked up the results of my mammogram and ultrasound. The Birad score is 5. I have been up for days reading this site and others and my head is spinning. I have 10 days to wait til I see the breast surgeon. I could get in earlier with someone else-my question is do I get a second opinion before I see first surgeon that I think I really want? I have self-diagnosed by reading so many of the forums here. I have an ill defined hypoechoic lesion with posterior shadowing that measures 3.2cm. It hurts like crazy. Sharp jabs all the way into my chest.
The receptionist at the first surgeons office said "I would be statistically no worse off for waiting 2 weeks" Boy, was that reassuring. I have only told my best friend-until I know for sure why have everybody's head where mine is? Hoping for good advice on one of the forums on how to tell my family.
Sorry this is all over the map but I have been sitting here with this report typing in questions to try to figure it out and I just keep seeing that roman numeral V. I am off work for a few weeks with recent knee surgery so I have had WAY too much time to read all the bad stuff. The inspirational stories are great but I am of course riveted by horror.
Thanks-I had to get this off my chest (guess that will be literal and well as figurative in days to come).
