This is not so much an etiquette question as a 'what would you do?' No medical advice please - let's not lock the thread.
So I went for my annual routine mammogram today. No family history, no worries. After two sets of photos (normal for me) and 20 minutes of waiting for Dr. to review the photos, Nurse comes in and says in a low whisper "Doctor requires an ultrasound" . 20 more minutes of waiting, during which time every horrible scenario is running through my head. Dr finally comes in and informs me that my photos were fine, no concerns, and that they 'just like to do an ultrasound every few years'.
So forget my 20 minutes of hyperventilating panic. It didn't occur to me until later that this was simply running up the bill for insurance. It's hard for me to say 'no' to a doctor - what do I know, after all? - but in hindsight I feel like I should have refused. A breast ultrasound is messy and uncomfortable.
Thoughts? Would you have gone along with it because Doctor knows best? Complained? Refused? Or not been concerned at all?
