I went for an ultrasound of my L breast after having two mammograms and the doctor now wants to send me for a PIM test.  He said there are only 65 of these machines in the US and he recommends this test rather than a biopsy.  I was wondering if anybody has had this test and what could I expect.

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

My guess is that it is something new. Ask your doctor to explain it, or at least the nurse in his office and then share with us. There is a test insurance companies like to argue about but for the life of me I can remember nothing more about it. Too much going on in my life right now with a husband that is suddenly very ill with lung cancer. Hugs MK
