Told "probably benign" and to come back in 6 months
I am 35 yr old with no history of Breast cancer. My PCP suggested a baseline mammogram when I mentioned that I weaned my last baby over three years ago, yet was still not completely dried up. Had the mammo on 12/27. Got a letter to come back for more testing. Had a more advanced mammogram today where they "spot" still showed up. Immediately sent to Ultrasound. The first u/s tech could not find the "spot" and had to get another tech, who then found it right away. Both techs left and the first tech came back in with a Dr. (have no clue what kind of dr. He did not say and I did not think to ask). The tech tried to show him the spot on u/s, but once again she could not find it. The Dr. turns to me and says quote "I cannot say what it is, but it is probably benign, come back in 6 months and we will see if it grows". I told him I did not think I could handle waiting 6 months to figure out what this spot is, especially since I came in because I was having a weird issue. He told me "go home, forget about it for the next 6 months". The Dr. was really rushed and seemed like he just could not be bothered with me.
I don't like the fact that the dr. did not even get to see the spot and that he gave me the brush off. Both things were unacceptable to me. I plan on getting a second opinion at a place that had an actual breast health center. Should I insist on a needle biopsy?
