A year ago I had a mammogram and ultrasound done. The radiologist discovered "something" that necessitated a biopsy, which was carried out.
Yesterday I went back for the annual mammogram and ultrasound and was asked by the radiologist, "Why did you not return three months after that biopsy for a check up?" I had not been informed I needed to do so. Be that as it may, she continued to do the mammogram and ultrasound and said "It's still in situ, but not much changed." I was asked to call on my specialist surgeon, who received the results electronically.
He told me, after examining me and seeing the results of the mammogram and ultrasound, that there is a breast lesion there but that I must go back in six months' time for a follow-up ultrasound.
I hasten to add that I recently also experienced a discharge (no blood in the discharge) from the nipple. Another thing I must mention is that two years ago I had my right breast removed because of Paget's Disease. What I would like to ask is :
Should I not insist that this lesion be removed or a mastectomy done? I would love your advice on this, please.
