My mother has a mass on one ovary, and the radiologists/gynecologists can't determine from the ultrasounds or MRIs what it is; whether cancer or a fibroid or a nonmalignant tumor or something else entirely. Their solution is a full hysterectomy. The doctor they offered her for a second opinion is in her gynecologist's office. Does anybody have advice on how to find a specialist in New York State? Like a radiologist who is an expert in telling the difference between the different types of masses, or a cancer expert who might first try more exploratory methods? She's in the Capitol District, but anywhere in NYS is paid for by her insurance. Thanks!!!
