    Problem with doctor

    Oh No

    I noticed a dimple in my right breast, while looking into the bathroom mirror, July 2012. My first visit was with a nurse practitioner, who told me it was "nothing", but to be on the safe side, she would order a mammogram. I had the mammogram and then ultrasound, and an extremely rude female radiologist informed me that the ultrasound was suspicious, and I should be scheduled for a biopsy. During the biopsy, the surgeron told me it was not cancer. Two days later, a radiologist called to say that I had invasive ductal carcinoma and I needed a surgeon. I immediately went "ballistic", because to me, invasive, meant that I had cancer all over my body.
