Was your breast cancer misdiagnosed by a radiologist?

I wish I knew why the two radiologists who looked at the test results didn’t suggest a biopsy. Of course, I know better now but back then I didn’t know that much about breast cancer. Can’t go back and change it. Now I’m Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer, which they guess now that I was Stage 4 when they first diagnosed me. It was too small to see the lesions in my liver back then.

I am so sorry you have gone through all of this. It is so difficult when you expect those with knowledge to guide you. Because I kept worrying about my other breast, I had asked the oncologist and my regular doctor for an MRI of the breast which they both told me was not necessary. It was my breast surgeon who I asked following my lumpectomy who said she didn't see why not to alleviate my worry, and it was at that MRI they noted another lesion on the opposite side of the affected breast which turned out to be a neuroendocrine cancer. I thank goodness I had decided to go to the other facility as had I not, that second lesion would have spread like wildfire. Stay strong Trivia, look out for yourself and keep questioning.
