    I was just reading a blog, that said people don't want any extra screening done. I wish that one of my mother's doctors treating her would have done some extra screening. Maybe,today she wouldn't be full of Cancer!!! I can't imagine,her having a mammogram every two years(that's what it also said,over 70 once every two years).It would show something,but no doctor bothered to do more screening to see what it was.

    Hi! Wow,sorry to hear what you've gone through. I just  don't know why it takes them so long to find it. I would think with todays techology, there should'nt even be anymore cancer. I've come to the conclusion that doctors today only think about the money and not the patient. Your right,your doctor probably didn't look at your scan.Cause about an month  ago,we took MRI disks to her family doctor and a speci...

          Hi! Not to scare you,but my mother's mammogram showed a little something each time. But,no doctor was concerned till her left hand swelled. Shortly after, her left breast  turned red and swelled the flag raised. Well,after 1 year of many doctors and tests. We found out that it's Stage 4 breast cancer that has spread all of her left side, chest, neck and bones (spine). And now that she also has a tumor(canerous) ...

            Hi! Sorry to hear that you've gone through all that too. I realize that doctors are only human,but wonder where did all those years of schooling go.  Or are they too concerned about money, that they don't about their patients anymore?? With all of todays techology,this shouldn't be happening. Thanks,well.so far she's has 2 treatments. She goes once a week. So far,she hasn't had to bad of symthons except s...
