About January I had mild aches in my right breast, finally in March I went for a mammogram and was told there was nothing wrong, but that I have dense breast tissue.
Then in May I found a lump and went back to my doctor and she felt the lump and sent me for another mammogram and ultrasound, and again was told nothing but dense breast tissue. My doctor said she wanted to see me back in 8 weeks.
After 4 weeks I started to have more pain and I received a letter from the imaging place that I was told to get a breast mri and they don't show I did this yet.....I was not told this by anyone....so I went back to the doctor and she sent me for a breast mri, which 2 weeks later I still haven't gotten the final report, but the imaging place called me and said they were waiting for my 2 mammograms to compare and there was nothing bad they just wanted to compare.
My doctor office then called and told me the same thing but added no malignancies were found, so I asked now what? She said the doctor may send me for a 3D mammogram, and I asked why we can't just cut to the chase and biopsy the lump and she said she'd cross that bridge if we get there.
So I am confused how there can be a physical lump I can feel, my doctor can feel, the mammogram tech could feel.....and one that causes me pain, and now sometimes in the night, but yet not show on 2 mammograms, ultrasound, and mri.....is 3D mammogram better than an mri? Should I go to a different doctor?
