What to do if I am here in this radiologist office because I hve do a breast spot compression I'm a bit worried cuz I'm 43 n my sister had breast cancer shld?

About 10% of: The time, the radiologist finds a potential abnormality on the screening mammo, or an area not well seen, requiring extra views to evaluate. 80% of the time this turns out to be nothing of concern. Of the remainder that go to biopsy, 80% of those turn out benign. ...Read more

Mammo asymmetry on 1 breast had a spot compression&ultrasound told overlapping tissue what is overlapping tissue? And why a 6 mon follow up ¬ 1 yr

Mammo asymmetry on 1 breast had a spot compression&ultrasound told overlapping tissue what is overlapping tissue? And why a 6 mon follow up ¬ 1 yr

Agree with 6 months : Mammograms are recorded in a two plane projection of 3 dimensional breast tissue. Any breast tissue overlapping another part of the breast will make it appear dense mimicking an abnormality or growth. . Compression views help to move these normal tissues away and clear the dense appearance provided there is no growth. 6 months follow up picks up any progression earlier than 1 year. ...Read more

I was told to apply cold compressions to my sore milk filled breast for comfort until all milk is gone what are cold compressions?

Heat vs. cold: Hot compresses are better than cold ones because they help dilate the breast milk ducts and help the flow of milks. Cold compresses are helpful after injuries to help with the swelling. ...Read more

Mammo shows asymmetry at superior in breast seen only on mlo view. Spot compression view reveals asymmetry dispersed into normal glandular tissue.?

Normal: Abnormal breast masses will not compress out but imaging artifact will. All imaging studies have a multitude of technical reasons why one single view could show something that really isn't there at all. Multiple views and other techniques like spot compression will tend to give a better picture of equivocal findings. ...Read more

How frequently does a spot compression lead to a breast cancer diagnosis?

How frequently does a spot compression lead to a breast cancer diagnosis?

Sometimes: Spot compression is used to determine if an area of abnormal appearing tissue on a mammogram spreads out like normal breast tissue or holds together densely like a more worrisome mass. Usually it spreads out and you forget it. Even when it leads to a biopsy because it doesn't compress it doesn't by any means absolutely mean cancer, it just increases those chances. ...Read more

Is a compression bra always recommended during sports for those who had a breast augmentation with implants?

Is a compression bra always recommended during sports for those who had a breast augmentation with implants?

Compression Bra: Each surgeon is different with what he/she recommends. Generally, if you want the breasts to be supported while performing a sport, it is best to wear a supportive sports bra. This is especially true for those that have larger breast implants.

Is a compression bra always recommended during sports for those who had a breast augmentation with implants? I am considering breast augmentation with implants, is there a type that is recommended for someone who spends a lot of sports year-round running

Generally : Generally after breast augmentation, we ask patients to refrain from excessive exercise for a period of two weeks. After this you are able to return to most activities as long as they are not causing you pain. It is important not to mask pain at this point with pain medications but rather listen to your body as it tells you what it can and cannot do during the recover process. After two or three months your result should be fairly stable. We generally tell our patients to go out and enjoy themselves and live their lives to the fullest, after all, breast implants are supposed to make your life better, not confine you to living in a bubble forever. That being said, just as women with larger natural breasts benefit from support during vigorous, high impact activities, you may now find your self pleasantly surprised to be in the same situation.

The short answer is listen to your body. If you find your neck, back, or breast strained by certain activities, then you should use a well fitted sports bra for those activities. Make sure it fits your new breasts properly without distorting them and never be afraid to ask your surgeon to double check the fit if you have any questions.

Hope that helps! ...Read more

I want to reduce my breast n how to keep diet on breast?

My son 10 months 10 kgs doesn't want to eat anything he just breast feeds n lil top feed his hb was found 10 what to do?

Anemia and poor feed: Well- exclusive breast feeding is good until babies are four months old only. After that, baby needs to be transitioned to other sources of diet. I suggest greens (veggies), fruits and iron fortified grains. It is hard for babies to transition as the comfort provided by breast milk is not replaced by other feeds. But you need to show ' tough love" here. Breast feeds only twice/ day. ...Read more

Am expressing 40ml at n average evry 2hrs as my son has difficulty latching. My breasts are still very sore. Why is it sore and any tips for relief?

Wrong latch: If at all possible, get the help of a lactation consultant. I am almost certain he is just patching to your nipple and not to the whole areola. This causes you to be sore and him to be frustrated because the milk will not let down correctly if he is just getting the tip. There are techniques to show you so he gets the whole area he needs to into his mouth, but someone would need to show you this. ...Read more

Whn I tighten breasts both hav indents but not at same position.left hs more obvious dents n is swollen2.also gained overall weight.
Grandmas had bc.

Weight gain: The skin over the breast is tethered to deeper structures with connective tissue. Due to weight gain and tightening the connective tissues pulls on the skin making dimples. This is not a sign of cancer. It would do you good to lose weight.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

What step should be taken besides medication which I am taking n surgery so that fibroadenoma in my breasts go. Won't it dissolve over time.

None: The fibroadenoma will not disappear. It is a growth and nothing will dissolve it. However, if the radiologist and your doctors feel that it is definitely a fibroadenoma, you can choose to just watch it over time and not have it removed. For more info www.Askyourgynecologist.

Yes it is: The breast size can be reduced by reduction mammoplasty which is a procedure performed by most plastic surgeons.

Surgery...: Sexual breast stimulation doesn't result in permanently larger breasts. Outside of surgery, there isn't any way to permanently increase breast size. There are a lot of "snake-oil" salesmen who will try to sell you something to increase breast size but none of them work. Best wishes! ...Read more

I been having a sharp pain that comes n go on my right side right under my right breast since yesterday should I be worried I'm 44 female.

Mastalgia: Only 1-6% of women complaining of breast pain have breast cancer, but if you're worried, contact your md to order a mammogram. Other reasons include cyclical hormonal pain, fibrocystic breasts, mastitis, pendulous breasts. Most mds recommend mammograms every other year in the 40s. See your doctor for a breast exam and consider some imaging to rule out a cancer. ...Read more

Hi, i just cooked some chicken breasts for my 15 year old son. While he was eating it we realized it was not cooked all the way through. He ate some n?

Not a problem: The scary issues with chicken or similar products are on the outside surface. This differs from hamburger that is a blend of shredded meat rather than solid. If the outside of a solid chunk of meat is cooked well, it kills any germs that might have been on the surface and they don't get inside solid meet. Just monitor the situation, but problems are unlikely. ...Read more
