Ok I need some help on this I'm a bit confused and worried. 2 years ago I went my /ob/gyn found a lump on my right breast and had me fo in for an ultra sound. She was simply concerned because my past medical history which includes cervical cancer , placenta previa, and had 2 children under the age of 18 . I am now 32 years old. I go in and the result showed a palpable mass that can be clinically managed and nothing after that to worry about. I litterly changed doctors due to my doctor packing up operation and moving to a state with less malpractice laws. So I go in for a routine annual check up with this new dr. and she starts checking my breasts and finds a lump on a different area same breat though and this one hurts me . Then she refers me to get a mammogram and an ultra sound . The reults were never given to me but they did refuse to do the ultra sound because the radiologist found no reason for the ultra sound and that I was cancer free...hmmm...my dr calls me 2 days later and says I am very concerned because the result showed 2 areas of concern and now referred me to a breast disease specialist which conducted an ultra sound and told me that it was common for woman of my age to get cyst fibrousious and that he did not suspect anything but still wanted to watch the lump and never checked the other mass on the same breast. I litterly go back to him 4 days ago for the follow up ultra sound and now he tells me that he is very concerned about the mass that the first dr detected 2 years ago and started asking me questions about pain and leakage....which I now have none of the above but some slight discolration to the lower part of my right breast. Then also tells me that he wants me to go in for another mammogram and ultra sound in 5 months by another facility. I asked him if anything was wrong and he said no that he just wanted to watch . Now that's what I'm confused and worried about ??? why wouldn't he just do a biopsy and rule it out? why would he have me wait through what number 6 in 2 years of these tests ? Why is that I seem to be getting the run around with my life here? Is it my age?
Please anyhelp is greatly appreciated here as for I am very concerned on this it is my life and I'm very young and want to live a few more years.
