General Surgeon today felt around on my breast (only right), he felt the lump after I told him where it was. He admitted that he hadnt even looked at the ultrasound images because the referral said "possible intramammary lymph node but lacked a hilum or vascular pedicle" not like I know what that means but he said he would only biopsy or remove it after I have waited 6 months. He kept saying "its only 7mm."
My PCM was beside himself as was I and he put in a "failure to establish therapeutic care/relationship" referral to a womens health clinic. Now only if military will approve it :( so needless to say I am still in the waiting game....
Has anyone ever heard of a benign lymph node lacking hilum or vascular pedicle?
