"Help! I had a stereotatic biopsey for a small cluster. The Breast Surgeon said it was negative and to follow up in a year. I am 44 and my younger sister had a double mast. 3 years ago for breast cancer. Should I see a specialist and ..."
If you need a professional to talk with:
800-221-2141 - National breast center
800-949-8154 - Cancer center
There are numerous websites you can google to research:
nccn.org - National Comprehensive Cancer Network. Has the guidelines that physician use
to help diagnose and treat.
cancer.org - American cancer society
When I recieved my pathology report, I researched every word
and found definitions, treatment, options, etc.
Which is why I don't understand why they are telling me radiation won't work
I can't make a logical decision unless I have all of the information.
Drs are very good, but they are very busy.
It is my responsibility to know as much as I can about what is wrong with me
Hope the above information is helpful
