    As far as i no it isnt routine.It might not be a bad idea to get in contact with the authorities with his name,what time you saw him etc.Right down and explain everything you went to see him for and what he did.

    You don't think I should speak with my doctor about it first?

    Yes you should.And i think he may also provide more information as to what you should do.Sorry first response for me would to call the police but yes talk to your doc but document everything.

    I agree that you need to write everything down, even before you speak to anyone. Date it and sign it too. That way all the facts will be there. The longer you leave it the more you will forget, and the brain also naturally confuses things. This way there can be no discrepencies.

    It is possible that he was checking your breasts legitamately, ie some breast lumps can present as shoulder pain, however, it was not right for him to do it in a manner that made you feel violated, so I definitely agree you should speak to your family doctor.

    Write it down and when you go and see him/her take what you have written and s/he will be able to make an informed decision on it

    Yes scum summed it up nicely.i would imaginge if he were checking for lumps he would perhaps tell you "i am going to check your breasts for any lumps in case that may be what is causing yadda yadda yadda" but who knows.Best to see your doc right away.
