Old granulomatous: Disease of the chest is a benign finding. See your doctor if symptoms persist.
Dr. Martin Raff

Several posibilities: Granulomas are a result of some inflammatory insult to tissues. In the lung they may represent old fungal infection such as histoplasmosis, or may be tuberculosis (in which case you should have a PPD placed and read so that it is part of your medical history). Non infectious causes also occur, such as sarcoidosis, starch granulomas, foreign body granulomas, and on and on.

What can be done to treat acne on the face, chest, and shoulders?

Acne Therapy: Acne treatments work by reducing oil production, speeding up skin cell turnover, fighting bacterial infection, reducing the inflammation or doing all four. With most prescription acne treatments, you may not see results for four to eight weeks, and your skin may get worse before it gets better. There are topicals like ziana and epiduo and oral medication like solodyn (minocycline). See your dermatologist.

How can I avoid putting pressure on my arm and prevent breast lymphedema?

General care: Lymphedema of the arm is seen following breast procedures (axillary dissection, radiation), and avoiding putting pressure on the arm doesn't prevent the swelling. Avoid scratches, injury of the arm that can result in infection and further damage of the lymphatics. Seek help of a lymphedema trained physical therapist for specific advice.

If I had a body scan today, when can I restart taking my hormone medicine?

Depends on hormones : I think that would depend on the type of hormone you are talking about and the scan you had. If you didnt get instructions then check with your doctor first. Did you have a thyroid scan? Was it a bone scan or a density scan?

Check with the doc: Many blood pressure medications take longer than a week to have their full effect. Check with your doctor as you may need a higher dose or another medication. Hbp is damaging over the long term most of the time and not over a few days so check with your doctor.
