I tested for antithyroglobulin antibody and the result is 1.7, is it a worrying situation? Bse was told that I have hyperpeethyridism.

I tested for antithyroglobulin antibody and the result is 1.7, is it a worrying situation? Bse was told that I have hyperpeethyridism.

Anti-thyroglobulin: Antibodies that react with a protein in the body are not typically normal however, about 10% of normal persons do have this antibody. This can also be associated with hashimoto's thyroiditis, thyroid cancer and chronic urticaria (hives). Make sure your doctor understands these issues or see an endocrinologist. ...Read more

Can you get BSE from bovine collagen supplements?

Can you get BSE from bovine collagen supplements?

Not likely: I think there is probably no brain or nerve tissue in this. Also I think there has been no mad cow disease in USA in recent years. However, the epidemic among British milk cows was traced to bone meal and meat added to their feed. Prions tend to survive heating. Since the US govt does not regulate these supplements you cannot know exactly how it was made. Why take this useless supplement, anyway? ...Read more

How often should I do a breast self-exam (bse)?

How often should I do a breast self-exam (bse)?

Monthly if desired: The value of breast self exams (bse) in the early detection of breast cancer is not settled. Instead, a clinical breast exam (cbe) should be done by a health professional (e.g. Family physician) on a regular schedule such as every 3-6 months. If self exam is desired then the correct tchnique has to be practiced and verified by your doctor first. After that, a monthly bse can be done. ...Read more

Ok for a woman in 30's to rely on clinical breast exams if she has anxiety doing breast awareness? Always finding things and stressing when doing bse.

Ok for a woman in 30's to rely on clinical breast exams if she has anxiety doing breast awareness? Always finding things and stressing when doing bse.

It's OK, but better: Even better, if you can find a woman's clinic or willing professional (nurse would be fine) to teatch you how, including interpretation of your 'findings'. To offer an tactile example of a 'bad' lump so you can know what that is. I admit I'd also be unsure of what that would be. Hey, I should find a teacher too. This can work for other concerns too. Learning can lower stress of the unknown. Best! ...Read more

Is breast tissue supposed to be symmetrical? Meaning, when I do a BSE, the "landscape" of the tissue of my left breast pretty much matches the right

Is breast tissue supposed to be symmetrical? Meaning, when I do a BSE, the "landscape" of the tissue of my left breast pretty much matches the right

Generally, yes: Most women have fairly symmetrical breast tissue architecture from one side to the other. It is very common to have mild asymmetry in terms of size. It is even common to find different architecture within different areas of the same breast. Your best value in doing BSE is detecting a difference in any area of the breast compared to previous BSE's. ...Read more

Can endo cause lumpy tender breasts? Also can prodding to hard bse cause soreness? Not sure if what I'm feeling is normal Had breast checked 3mths ago

Endo: Is unlikely to cause lumpy painful breasts. Even tho you have had a recent check, you are experiencing a change. I would contact my doc for a recheck. In general, we see pain in the breast to be a benign sign. The lumpiness needs to be examined however. ...Read more

Left breast lump found on BSE; had mammogram followed by U/S. Complex cyst w/debri (5mm) identified. Told to have repeat mammogram in 1 year but how do I know for sure the "debri" isn't worrisome? Should I get 2nd opinion or request biopsy?

Left breast lump found on BSE; had mammogram followed by U/S. Complex cyst w/debri (5mm) identified. Told to have repeat mammogram in 1 year but how do I know for sure the "debri" isn't worrisome? Should I get 2nd opinion or request biopsy?

Breast cyst.: Given that your age does put you at risk for breast cancer, unfortunately, with or without a family history of such, a second opinion wouldn't hurt. Complex cysts are a bit more worrisome than simple cysts as they have some contents. I wouldn't panic right now, but a second opinion or a breast MRI wouldn't be a bad idea. ...Read more
