Been waiting 2 months for an us scan on a moveable pea sized lump at the side of my breast under my arm pit; it hasn't grown is this a good sign?

Good sign.: Breast cancer at your age would be very unusual. Common causes for what you are feeling include an epidermal inclusion cyst, lymph node, fibroadenoma, normal glandular tissue, or, less commonly, a cyst. Hopefully the ultrasound will help clear this up. Overall, the risk of cancer is very, very low. ...Read more

Had GP and ENT look at this pea sized hard lump in the side of my neck. One says node one says knot. Been there 3 months. Good cbc. No tests, concern?

Lymph node: If the general practitioner or the otolaryngologist think that this is a lymph node, and it is FIRM and has been present for 3 months, I would recommend that you have it biopsied. Pea sized is on the small side for a lymph node, however. You should ask the ENT physician directly "should this be biopsied, " and if he or she thinks not, ask them to provide a rationale (they may have a good one) ...Read more

Can wasabi peas go bad and cause food poisoning? Ate some for first time ever, already were sitting in cupboard for while. Felt flu-ish next few days

Can wasabi peas go bad and cause food poisoning? Ate some for first time ever, already were sitting in cupboard for while. Felt flu-ish next few days

Not food poisoning: Dried foods like wasabi peas are an unlikely cause of food poisoning, and "flu-ish" symptoms don't suggest it. The main symptoms of food poisoning are gastrointestinal -- nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. And food poison symptoms generally clear up on their own within 1-2 days. Almost certainly your symptoms have nothing to do with the wasabi peas. See a doctor if they continue or become severe. ...Read more
