Saw the doctor today to get a new Celexa scrip and she wanted to palpate my breast that had a clogged sebaceous gland last year. Nothing unusual, my boobs have always been lumpy yet benign. (Fibrocystic breasts are very common in my maternal family.) She commented on their lumpiness today and asked if I'd been diagnosed with fibrocystic breasts before. I replied, "Only by civilian doctors. The last military doctor that gave me a breast exam insisted I had completely lumpless breasts, so I guess it depends on how you're reimbursed." My doc did not laugh. vogonpoet did.
My boobs have the texture of lumpy oatmeal in a plastic bag most of the time, so I can only imagine what that military provider must have felt on a regular basis.
