Well, I went to the breast specialist and he explained that there is not just one suspicious area that they were unable to see clearly, but 3. He feels a MRI of the breast is absolutely necessary because otherwise he would have to do 3 separate biopsies. We scheduled the MRI, but the new insurance company is also requiring what is called a pier to pier conference with the doctor. This is where he speaks directly to a physician that works for the insurance company and explains why he feels it is necessary to do the MRI. The protocol for this insurance company as well as our previous insurance company, or guidelines to authorize the MRI is history of an immediate family member having breast cancer, genetic test results showing that you are predisposed to cancer or tissue samples (biopsies) positive for cancer or precancerous cells. Because my situation would require biopsies in 3 separate areas of the breast from areas deep within the breast, it is his opinion that it would be cruel and ridiculous to put me through this, when an MRI would determine whether or not biopsies are even necessary. Unfortunately, the doctor was called out of the office on an emergency in the morning my MRI was scheduled for and was unable to have the pier to pier conference. Therefore, my appointment for the MRI had to be rescheduled for next week, so that the doctor can have the conference and we can get the authorization for the MRI. So, I'm still waiting without answers, with the exception that I have now found out that I have 3 areas of concern, not just one.
