Troponin: Chest pain related tests include checking the blood for release of heart muscle cell Troponin and CPK. Release of these substances occur when the heart is damaged by decreased blood flow from a blockage in the pipe supplying blood to the heart, direct trauma or from inflammation of the muscle, etc. The rate of release and amount determines the significance of the release to guide management.

A 45-year-old member asked:

Can women go on birth control even though their mother has had breast cancer?

Yes: Bcp use is not associated with any significant incidence of breast cancer regardless of risk factors, however, certain breast cancers can grow in response to estrogen use. It is advised to begin cancer screening 10 years before your mother was first diagnosed with breast cancer. This should include yearly physician exam and mammography, ultrasound, and/or mri, depending on age and risk factors.

Misalignment: Many misalignments are biomechanical (how your body lines up and works - or doesn't) and may not show up on imaging. They can be caused by old injuries, compensations to injuries or sugeries, deconditioning or by life. Now that you know it's not something scary, find a good do who does manipulation (biodo.Com, aao.Com, cranialacademy.Com). Once alignment is better, consider adding phys therapy.

Biopsy when stable: The current studies suggest that there may be a cancer. The source could be the lung or thyroid. This could also be benign, but with the pe it will need further workup. After the pe is stabilized a biopsy is the only way to know.
