I am a 5x cancer survivor including cancer in each breast. The Saturday before Easter my mother showed me a lump on her left breast. Called primary 1st thing Monday morning and he wouldn't see her until Thursday. Also would not write script to go to Roswell, a national cancer institute about 10 miles away. He blew it off as just being fatty tissue and small, even though it protruded and was visible without palpitation. Sent her for Mammogram Monday 4/29. Radiologist was concerned enough to follow up mammogram with sonogram and said tumor is 2 INCHES long - wanted to send her for biopsy ASAP but docs had gone home by that time. Called primary today and he refuses to write script for biopsy until he sees her on Friday. When I told my mother, the look on her face was pure devastation. Now having per home care nurse get doc to write script. My last b/c was 2009 and I want to present all the options to my mother since she does not want to go through what I did with chemo and being so sick. Also want to help calm her. So if anyone can treat me like a newbie and explain a lot of the advancements, I would deeply appreciate it!!
