Mammogram (Definition)

A mammogram is the "gold standard" screening test for breast cancer. It's well established that yearly 'grams will DX cancers well before they are palpable, leading to earlier diagnoses and saved lives. All experts agree to begin yearly mammograms by age 50; many (including myself) believe the pro's outweigh the con's to begin at 40. Regrettably, less than half of all women ...Read more

Can a 57 year old woman have breast cancer if last mammogram was 1.5 years ago and normal? Never had an abnormal mammogram. What stage cancer?

Can a 57 year old woman have breast cancer if last mammogram was 1.5 years ago and normal? Never had an abnormal mammogram. What stage cancer?

Yes: The normal mammograms in the past won't protect you from future breast cancer. Also, mammograms are about 80% sensitive for detecting cancer, so 20% of cancers won't be seen. 1.5 years is enough time for a cancer to double in size 6 times. If you have a lump, see your doctor. If not, please resume your screening mammography. ...Read more

Biopsy and/or I&D: Hi. You need to go to a breast clinic. You may need a biopsy of the lymph node and any other suspicious mass. The pain may be an abscess, which would need to be incised and drained. The internet is no place for this problem. You need a hands on physician. Good luck! ...Read more

Mastodynia : Breast pain is usually secondary to hormonal effects on breast tissue or chest wall pain; favoring the former are cyclic changes in the pain; the latter is most common after menopause & is often activity-related.

Pressure & pain left quadrants. Bloat with any food. Easily physically & mentally fatigued. Breast pain & bruising. Clear mammogram. Help?

Pressure & pain left quadrants.  Bloat with any food.  Easily physically & mentally fatigued.  Breast pain & bruising.  Clear mammogram.  Help?

Lots to deal with: Hang in there! You have a lot of symptoms, and they may not be related. First I see that you are taking Benadryl (diphenhydramine). That can cause "mental fatigue" so switch to a non sedating antihistamine like allegra. #2 gallbladder removed. This can cause problems with digestion so discuss that with an internist. Omeprazole can sometimes cause abdominal pain and low platelets which can cause bruising. See MD ...Read more

I went to my doctor  for breast pain he said he felt something there I have to get a mammogram It's in both breast change in meds have anything to do?

Mammogram: The pain is bilateral, but your doctor felt something on one side? Bilateral pain is generally not a sign of breast cancer. If your doctor felt something, however, it needs to be evaluated. At your age, ultrasound is typically the first imaging study, but mammogram not inappropriate either. ...Read more

My left breast hurts. blood work, 2 ultrasound and diagnostic mammogram all normal. Specialist says fibrocystic but it hurts all month Idk what 2 do. ?

Multiple causes: Fibrocystic changes are very common in women, and sometimes they can involve only one breast, or a part of one breast. Most doctors recommend a trial of avoiding caffeine first, which helps a large percentage of women. An infection can also cause this, and requires different treatment. Sometimes an operation is necessary. ...Read more
