I have found a lump, and it is freaking me out beyond belief so I'm off to the doctors. I am a little nervous though, it is a woman doctor thank God but still I am nervous. Will she just gently feel around where I say the lump is? Will she do anything else at this stage? And the big question, will they take it seriously? Sometimes I feel the doctors can't be bothered.
Re: What do doctors do during a breast examination?
GoldenShores: Yes, the doctor will gently massage the area and feel for lumps. She'll probably send you for a mammogram or an MRI so they can see what is there. Alot of times these things are just cysts. Try to stay calm and just let her tell you what you need to do. Good luck.
