Cancer: Breast Message Board

Cancer: Breast Board Index

When you go in to have your mammogram, get to the appointment early and stop up to the medical records department and request a copy of the ultasound report. Read the report and anything that you do not understand, tell the tech doing your mammogram that you wish to speak to the reading radiologist. Do not let them tell you that the films are going to be read later in the day, tell her that this is your second time coming back and that you do not want to be call back for additional films. Make them page the radiologist and have him/her explain all the findings.
If you are not the pushy type like myself, than still get a copy of the ultasound report and call your doctor office and tell them that you wish to speak to the doctor personally.
