Lied too by 2 doctors about BI-RADS!
First mammogram/sonogram last week.Had a very LARGE 9cm lump that needed looked at- Radiologist on staff reviewed images same day. I was told abnormal. Yep thats it! Abnormal. My PCP got the report couple days later and said ABNORMAL! I said thats it?? Thats all anyone can tell me? And I need biopsy. Made 3rd appointment for biopsy and thankfully that doctors office gave me access to my OWN report which says 4C BI-RAD!!! This was on my original report yet 2 doctors wouldn't tell me! Is this normal for them to withhold information like that?? I'm beyond angry!! So nobody was going to mention this 4C until they said CANCER??? I'm a 50 year old woman not a child! Has this happened to anyone else? I shouldn't have to fight to get straight answers! BTW its a large 9cm lump I KNOW its abnormal!!??? I can only imagine what I'm in for if this is cancer! I don't have the patience for these games!
I want to explain a little bit more on this post! After the mammogram AND sonogram a week ago I never received a report, a letter anything! Nothing. All I was verbally told ..was it was "abnormal" I have a 9cm lump! I'm very aware its not normal! Yesterday I made the biopsy appointment the receptionist was asking me questions I couldn't answer!! I said I never received ANY of that information so I can't answer the questions! Somehow she got some information a report that the radiologist had wrote a WEEK ago! Thats the first time I received any information at all!! The letter states that the radiologist explained EVERYTHING in the letter to me a week ago! Lie! I was never ever told anything except one word ABNORMAL. There's alot of info in the report not just the bi-rad! ALL of that info should have been shared with ME!! I honestly can't imagine anyone not wanting to know whats going on in their body!
