Am I doing this right
I just got the call that I have cancer, but I don't think full pathology results from the biopsy (Wednesday) are in. Nothing is on MyChart yet. My primary care doctor gave me the number for an oncologist and a surgical practice. She said to take the first available for both. I have an appointment for an oncologist on Tuesday (happy it's so soon!). Should I let the oncologist direct me to a surgeon? Or just call the number the doctor gave me? I haven't told my family yet and would like more info before I do, but I may just tell them it's early stage and I have an appointment to find out more Tuesday. I kind of knew this was coming given my imaging report said BIRADS-5, but it still has me reeling.
