Surgery for Calcifications/Cancer from Calcifications
I have dense breast and I'm flat chested. Mammogram and Ultrasound again found a cluster of calcifications. They've been there for years but now the radiologist recommended a biopsy. The problem is the radiologist refuses to do a needle biopsy because the Calcifications are too close to the surface. My doctor refuses to give me any information so I was sent to a breast surgeon but had no idea why until I arrived. The surgeon said the needle biopsy can be done but since the radiologist refuses they must put me under and cut me open. I refused because the surgeon said he doesn't think I have cancer and the radiologist results on the ultrasound are wrong. They sent a request to my doctor to have me get a second opinion by another radiologist/hospital but there hasn't been any contact from doctor. Has anyone had breast cancer just from calcifications? Has anyone been cut open to remove calcifications? I feel like the system is broken and I'm being treated like a guinea pig.
