Because you are a few years out it gets harder and harder to get in to an oncologist. That being said, a surgeon friend said most breast cancer referrals come by way of OB/GYN so if it were me, I would start there.
This also gives you the option of asking for a different oncologist, should you need one.
Do you live near a cancer center or teaching university where there might be multiple onco doctors to choose from?

Thank you for the information. My lungs were hurting when I breathe and still does a little, but I thought I had Covid. Thank God I didn’t. I still thank God for all my ups and downs. I’m fine with my health regardless because I left it in God’s hands. I’m a happier person now.

Hi. I agree with zebra, auntieoakley and windyshores. The best way to really know is to make an appointment with your gyn or pcp and get the referral for a mammogram and/or ultrasound just to be sure. Let us know how you make out. 👍
