After being examined, she told me that there was a lump in
my breast. I told her that I had read where pain in
the breast associated with a lump is usually a benign cyst. However, she said not to count on that. She went further to tell me of mastectomies, lumpectomies, and radiation therapy. Also, I was informed about specialists in Duke. She scheduled me for a mammogram for the following day. However, I could not have it done that day and now I have to wait until Thursday, the following week.
