"breast clinic"

About: Broomfield Hospital

I was referred to the breast clinic as i have been in severe pain for over 2 months with no explanation. The doctor done a 2minute examination and saying he can see i am in a lot of pain he refused a ultrasound as i am too young for a mastectomy. Just recommended different over the counter pain relief and if it doesnt work theres a breast pain clinic. Yet again i have been fobbed off on to a different department and no one seems to care about the constant pain i am in. I understand there can be no explanation but i expected more help than just a leaflet and sent on my way. As three doctors have now done this i am starting to loose faith in the medical profession and they wonder why people can get addicted to painkillers but in my case they just dont work anymore.
