I've recently been suffering pain in my left breast. My GP has seen me twice, firstly prescribing me a course of antibiotics, secindly referring me to a specialist for an ultrasound based on finding a lump and red hot skin. I've been to the scan today, however the doctor was very flippant with me, he didn't scan me, he simply poked my rib cage and told me it was sciatica.
As you can imagine I am left a bit confused and feeling like an inconvenience. I'm worried it could be an abscess. There's a history of breast problems in my family, and I'm still in pain.
Can someone kindly advise on wether I should persist and get a second opinion with a different consultant?
