Not necessary: It is unlikely the pain in your back is related to your breasts as long as other tests were normal. Hope the MRI of the spine was your neck. If not you might consider that. But you should talk to your doctors ad always to help find the cause ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...Read more

I had a black spot on my breast, it was itchy so I scratched it then it became like a pimple. I squeezed it then white pus came out then black pus?

Blackhead: It sounds like you had a clogged pore or blackhead. When you scratched it, the bacteria normally on your skin were able to make their way underneath and cause a mild infection. This was the white pus that you noted. If it does not resolve completely, you should see your doctor. A picture is always helpful when trying to diagnose a skin problem. ...Read more

Small red spot on breast with a small black spot in middle a little swollen I just started my period should I be worried?

Small red spot on breast with a small black spot in middle a little swollen I just started my period should I be worried?

Concern: is warranted. There are a surprising number of breast structures that can get infections. They grow. If treated while the area is small, you don't even need slight poking of the area and antibiotics treat it. If a bit larger can require opening the area with a needle (popping a pimple), larger still can require minor surgery and leave a scar. Really bad can require hospitalization. ...Read more

It means that: there was an abnormality or potential abnormality on the mammogram that required additional evaluation or confirmation with ultrasound. Or, if you have dense breasts, screening ultrasound may be performed as an adjunct test even if the mammo shows no abnormality. ...Read more

What does a normal breast ultrasound look like in a healthy person?

Black&White&Gray: Normal breast tissue will look gray on ultrasound; near the nipple, it is common to see ducts which can have a honeycomb pattern. Most importantly, cancers look very different than normal breast tissue. To the untrained eye, ultrasounds are like a rorschach test--you can see what you want to see in them. ...Read more
