Yes: It is not uncommon to have a clear discharge from the nipple if the breast tissue or nipple is compressed (squeeze). Continue doing your mammograms when recommended by your doctor.

A 21-year-old member asked:
Is testosterone treatment for aging men comparable for hormone replacement therapy for menopausal women?

Yes: Having been in this situation, i can tell you that balancing out hormones in men is just as important as doing so for women. Men lose their sex drive, become Insulin resistant, lose their vitality. I'll post a page later that describes my own personal treatment success. I feel great at almost 52 years of age.

A 37-year-old member asked:
I recently had epidural steroid injection and I have a burning pain in groin. Is this normal?

Yes: Within reason. The injection itself may initially irritate the tissues around the nerve and the nerve itself. Especially if you had what is called a transforaminal injection. It sounds as if your injection was given around the 3rd lumbar nerve, right ?

A 40-year-old member asked:
I had my kidney stone removed by scope and stent removed 6 days after. Is it normal to still feel pain?

Not Usually: Typically, after a stone is removed the the stent is removed, the pain goes away almost immediately. Sometimes, there is still some swelling in the ureter that could be giving continued pain or even possible a small stone fragment. I would check with your doctor with the pain persisting that long.
