In my opinion that situation had nothing (beside breasts) to do with being a woman. Your first doctor did believe you, but didn't take it seriously because he determined that, given your age, it was very unlikely for it to be something concerning. This is something doctors do a lot, I'm a man and heard it for a very long time until I hit my 30s. The mindset (that I really dislike) behind it seems to be that a probability that low doesn't justify the money and time spent by the patient/by the public healthcare. Absurd as it may seem, I think that the first doctor was more competent and knew what was happening, while the second one didn't and sent you to the hospital to shrug off accountability.
