Yesterday I had bloody discharge from an areolar gland. Saw md and have mammogram scheduled. What conditions could cause this?

Bloody discharge: Most of the times it's due to a benign papilloma, a tumor that grows within the duct. Bloody nipple discharge in someone under 40 is caused by cancer in less than 3-5% of cases so I would not be too worried but certainly agree with having it checked. Best to you. ...Read more

I'm 23 years female and I have some growing hair around my areolar region of my breast which irritate me. What I do??? although I have small breast

Is there an obvious scar after breast or areolar reduction surgery?

Is there an obvious scar after breast or areolar reduction surgery?

Docs, had breast US, result- thr is dilatation of d peri- areolar (depth 3.6 mm) in d left breast. No intraductal lesion is seen within visualized duct?

Ductal dilatation: Hi, I'm not sure why you got a Sono of breast at ur age, it is not very common to screen for breast ca at ur age.
Unilateral ductal dilatation on mammogram & Sono has not been reported to be cancerous unless there is other worrisome findings like a lesion or calcification inside duct. You always can repeat your ultrasound in 6 months, also MRI would be an option but I wouldn't be worried. ...Read more

Who gets omg?

Who gets omg?

Can you clarify?: Omg is a texting-age expression "oh my god" but used even by secularists to express amazement and dismay at once. It's no medical acronym that I recognize though there are some trashy websites preseting medical freaks as having "omg disease". To which disease are you referring? Someone on healthtap will be happy to answer. ...Read more
