gynecomastia Posted By gopal Date : 08-Jul-08
i am 52 years old man and recently i am feeling terrible pain in my right breast and the family physician advised me to consult a surgeon as he suspected that pain is due to gyneco mastia. i consulted two surgeons in corporate hospitals and they suggested mastectomy and they informed me that if i fail to undergo that surgery, breast cancer would develop. i consulted a plastic surgeon in gandhi hospital and he simply said that no surgery was needed. he passed adversary comments against the doctors who previously suggested mastectomy. he stepped into the role of a psychiatrist and counselled me that this was nothing but a psycho somatic disease. whose advise i have to follow? recently doctors in KGH, vizag refused to treat a woman suffering from severe stomach ache and referred to psychiatrists. did these people study medicine to deceive gullible people? is not unethical for a doctor to speak ill of his colleagues?
