there must be a LOT of physician incompetence in NC if three of them gave you a tumour stage of your cancer before surgery without any pathologic diagnosis of your biopsy specimen or results of tests to detect metastatic disease

Kim,

There is a better way. It is called thermography. It can detect tumors growing 8-10 years before a mammogram. I am so sorry that you were misdiagnosed and you are going through this. I have gone through it too. Thermography saved my life. Please, whatever you do, go to www.thermographyfirst.com
It will explain what thermography is. You can monitor your breast health safely, painlessly and without radiation. Even if you are having a mastectomy, cancer can come back in the other breast or even on your chest wall. Thermography is the earliest detection available. Much luck to you. Donna
