I found an excellent resource for second opinions of mammograms and breast ultrasound exams: Mammogram Security.
Thank you Jill1998, the GP still didn't have the letter from my clinic visit a week ago when I phoned yesterday but I will try again today.
I don't have private medical insurance (or a high income) but I'm thinking of getting a second opinion from a private consultant as I don't want to be seen at the same clinic again!
Thank you Jill. I'm really not sure what to do. I will see what is written on the letter to my GP and take it from there.
I'm just a bit unsure what to do!
I saw a nurse practitioner and sonographer at the breast clinic last week. I was told that they found inflammation and thickening on ultrasound but that it was felt to be of a benign origin. I'm just a bit concerned about why there is inflammation in my breast when I have not had an infection and I cannot think what else might have caused it.
Should I just wait and ask my GP about the letter that will be sent to him from the breast clinic? Or should I ask to referred to a private breast clinic for a second opinion? Or do you think it would be better to just accept that everything is ok?
