IF YOU FIND A LUMP IN YOUR BREAST

1.Can you refer me to an accredited mammography facility for amammogram?

2.Can this lump be aspirated (fluid or cells removed with a needle)?

3.What about a biopsy? Why? Why not? What type?

4.Can you refer me to a doctor who specializes in breast problems for further tests and/or treatment?

5.Would ultrasound be recommended?

6.What non-cancerous conditions can cause breast lumps?

Helpful hint: If a waiting period is advised, consider getting a second
