Hi, Anon. I have a name for you, but I would rather send it to you personally. Could you click on my name (in orange by my photo)? It will take you to my profile and you will see a place where you can send me a private message. And then can you send me a real email address for yourself? Or else set up an EmpowHer account for yourself and then come back to this post with your EmpowHer nickname? (As Anon, I can't email you personally.)

Hello Anonymous,

I'd like to second Diane P's welcome to you--we are so glad you found us here at EmpowHer. I have read through all of your posts and Diane's too and I think Diane has given you a lot of really great information. Thank you so much Diane for helping this poster and trying to find her a doctor in her area of NY.

I'm so glad you are going to go and get this checked out. Like Diane P. said, it may very well turn out to be something that is not that concerning. But she also said something that I cannot agree with more--when it comes to our breasts, we can't be too careful.

Please post again and let us know how you are doing and what you find out, and if we can help you with any other information. You have done a great job explaining your situation and sharing your story with us. I am so proud of you for being proactive about your health and wanting to figure out what is going on. Big hugs to you, Michelle

You bet. It's a holiday weekend so it might take until Monday. But we'll get you a name or two.

OK. Let me get in contact with a couple of people I know and see if they have someone they would recommend. I'll bookmark this thread and see if I can't get you a name in the next couple of days, ok? Hang in there with me, there are fabulous doctors whom you can trust and rely on. We'll help you find one.
