This was my first visit with Dr. Carter. I had a biopsy done at Cooper in January and it showed I had a mass in my right breast, a papilloma, and the radiologist said to see a breast surgeon. My daughter accompanied me to the visit because she wanted to know what the surgery would entail. Dr. Carter explained everything thoroughly and I decided to have another biopsy in 6 months to see if there are any changes.
