Re: Has anyone been told re, there G.P

My doctor (who I also had never met before) told me that she was pretty certain that I had BC when I went to have my dimple checked out last May. She found a lump under it.

I was pretty shocked at the time that she had told me but, in hindsight, it prepared me for what was to come when I was formally diagnosed at the breast clinic. I don't think she would have said anything if she wasn't pretty much certain.

I now make a point of using this doctor all the time. She might not pull any punches, but at least I know that she's on the ball and honest.

Hi Kippy,

 

it's so hard to comment on the communication of the GP, I guess they would need to be fairly certain to even say it, and it may have been one of her specialities during GP training etc? who knows. It's a shame that in those situations we can be so shocked by something unexpected falling out of the GP's mouth that we don't manage to ask them clarify why they might make such a confident statement. My own GP was equally as sure but very reluctant to communicate that to me, I felt she wanted to but since we hadn't met before (she is new to the surgery) she was unsure of my personality and my potential reaction. A few questions down the road and I got the picture lol.

 

I hope that things turn out well for you.

 

Best Wishes x

Has anyone been told re, there G.P

has anyone ever gone to there doctors surgery (saw a doctor who they have never met before, so does not know you) given you an examination then proceed to inform you she was 99.09 sure you have breast cancer, this was just a hand examination. off course i have been referred to the hospital and i am sure it is cancer myself, its just the more i think about it surely she should not presume, some people i think would have freaked out being told so bluntly  ? she should leave it to the experts to do tests at the hospital, specialists in breast cancer. I was diagnosed with a rare breast cancer in 2005 called a Medullary which i was told had a favorable out come, that was in my right breast this lump appeared from no where on Saturday in my left breast, so hopefully if it is cancer it will be a new primary cancer and a very kind one at that.
