After putting off her annual screening mammogram for a few weeks, Dr. Reema Batra, a hematologist and oncologist affiliated with Sharp Grossmont Hospital, finally made an appointment despite her busy work schedule and home life.
“I thought I’d be in and out quickly like I always had been before. But this time it was different,” she says.
After the initial mammogram, the technician asked her if they could do more views. Then the radiologist let her know that they also wanted to do an ultrasound.
“That’s when I started to worry a little bit,” she says.
