Dear Dr. Bone,
I was just diagnosed with breast cancer at 33. My doctors assure me that it was caught early and that I will be ok. What really upsets me is that I found the lump myself a few months ago and both my doctor and his nurse didn’t take me seriously when I called. It wasn’t until after the second visit that they set up a mammogram and sonogram which showed it clear as day. I’m tempted to find a lawyer, but everybody says that it isn’t worth it. I don’t want money, but I do want to teach that doctor a lesson. You may not want to answer this one, but it would be nice to let your readers know. — Angry in Palm Beach Gardens
