Mar 30, 2018 · Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma: My primary care doctor won't treat me! in Head & Neck Cancer

I guess I am not understanding why the ENT would need to send me to a gynecologist for a routine pap smear. Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma is in my sinus cavity.

Mar 30, 2018 · Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma: My primary care doctor won't treat me! in Head & Neck Cancer

I was diagnosed with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma on February 9, 2018. Since that time, my primary care doctor has refused to treat me for basically anything. I made an appointment for a physical and while I was there I had a few questions and wanted referrals for a mammogram, a pap and ophthalmology. I also needed a TB test because my son’s school requires an updated TB every few years. So, after I asked my questions, he refused to do the physical and I ended up leaving there with literally nothing but a referral for a mammogram. He is telling me that my ENT needs to refer me to these other specialists. Has anyone else had this issue before. Why would the ENT refer me to gynecology?? I feel like this doctor has washed his hands of me and I don’t know why.

Good Morning,

My name is Stephanie and I live in Sacramento, California. I was diagnosed with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma after a sinus surgery in February 2018. I have no symptoms and no idea that I had anything other than allergies and a blocked sinus cavity. During surgery the surgeon noticed the tumor. I have had one consultation with UCSF and am looking for another option.
