At 42-years-of-age, Betsy was worried about mammogram results that revealed a mass in her breast. When her local provider suggested she have another mammogram and ultrasound, she was anxious that if only imaging was performed, the results could be inaccurate and it would result in a missed diagnosis.
When Betsy consulted with a 2nd.MD specialist, she was educated on the importance of follow-up imaging since the initial mammogram could present a false positive. The specialist discussed that the additional imaging would be able to determine if a true breast mass exists versus an imaging error.
After her consult, Betsy stated that she was satisfied with the consult and had been scheduled for imaging.
