    I saw a breast cancer surgeon. That is all she does so it's nice to meet and work with someone so specialized

    Yes, I agree with Anne. You should definately talk to an Onc. or breast cancer specialist. There are several different types if breast cancer. You need to learn everything you can about your particular type to improve your treatment results. Knowledge is power!

    Megan, the purpose on a oncologist is to set you up a road map once they found out what the surgeon has found

    Yes you should talk to an oncologist or at least a Breast cancer specialist to know what all your options and choices are with your type of breast cancer. The more knowledge you have in regards to your diagnosis the better you can be your own advocate and get the best treatment for you
