Go to your doctor!: Bloody nipple discharge could be a sign of intraductal breast cancer. You need a diagnostic mammogram and possibly breast ultrasound for further evaluation. Don’t delay!

Boot it is!: Most minor distal fibular fractures will be treated with a walking boot for 4-6 weeks. A cast, however, may need to be applied if the fracture is not healing well.

Don’t have surgery: If you do not have symptoms, no need for surgery. Adenomyosis is very common and often asymptomatic. Is your doctor worried about something else that surgery was recommended?
