The best advice I can offer would be for you to seek assistance at a Breast Care Center. They deal with breast health issues 24/7, are the most up to date on information and have the most modern technology.

I can appreciate how concerned you must be, and I certainly don't like the way they have dismised your worries. You deserve someone who can find the reason for the anomoly as well as can ease your fears.

Please know we will be thinking of you, and do let us know how you are doing.

Blessings.
