10 month old baby girl needs diagnosis
Hi, my name is Jim. I have a eleven month old daughter, Cecelia, that is in the 75% for height and weight. She went for a physical today and the doctor noticed early breast developement. Everything else her pediatric doctor has checked out appears fine. From what I have researched this appears to be pretty common, one out of ten maybe.

Now here is why I am so concerned. My seventeen year old step-daughter has McCune Albright Syndrome. Those of you who are familiar with this disease know how serious it is. Cecelia has no other symptoms such as pubic hair or vaginal bleeding. I want her to be checked out more thoroughly and so does her pediatric. The endocrinologist my step-daughter deals with doesn't see the need for us to bring her in.

What do you think? This is making me sick to my stomache. Although it does not appear to be hereditary, I just don't understand why anyone would not want to get an early diagnosis. Why take such a chance?
