MY MAMMOGRAM IS ABNORMAL AND THE RADIOLOGIST RECOMMENDS AN IMMEDIATE BIOPSY

FINALLY had Mammogram. The technician was very nice. Sonogram took FOREVER. A Brazilian technician gave me the sonogram. After about 45 minutes on my right breast I lost my temper…and asked her to hurry up as I was really worried about my left breast. She explained, in very good temper, that I had so many […]
