Pituitary fxn: Nipple discharge, if not explained on mammography, may be further assisted w/ a complete endocrine function, particularly serum prolactin level from the pituitary gland. If elevated, an MRI brain would be warranted. ...Read more

18 mnth ago I had stage 2 idc with no metastasis. Today they found microcalifications in same breast on mamo but sono was clearmastectomy orbiopsy?

Biopsy: Most likely a surgeon will recommend a biopsy. There are many reasons for microcalcifications. Since the ultrasound was clear he may also recommend an mri. No need for mastectomy without a clear diagnosis of non-udc. ...Read more

After mamo and u/s showed microcalcifications in wife's breast, had biopsy with benign result. Now radiologist wants another biopsy?! is this needed?

After mamo and u/s showed microcalcifications in wife's breast, had biopsy with benign result. Now radiologist wants another biopsy?! is this needed?

I'm sorry, yes: They must not have removed the calcifications, so they didn't really biopsy the area of concern. This sometimes happens; the breast can be confusing terrain, and calcifications are very tiny. If the radiologist is recommending another biopsy, please have it done. I know from experience how uncomfortable it can be, but this is exactly what a good radiologist does. You want to be sure! ...Read more

Agree: Agree with dr george marosan.

Some of my patients did not want the saline implants any longer and they did not want to spend the money for the surgical removal - so, I have punctured them - without any problems (and I never removed them). You can get the mammogram done, few weeks after that. ...Read more

Bloody discharge out of one montgomery gland on right breast. Mamo and us negative, pathology inconclusive. Does this mean no cancer? What could it be

Bloody discharge out of one montgomery gland on right breast. Mamo and us negative, pathology inconclusive. Does this mean no cancer? What could it be

Pathology report?: A common cause of bloody nipple discharge is a benign papilloma. Most times, the duct has to be excised to remove the papilloma both to see if there is cancer present and to stop the bloody discharge. I am not sure what type of biopsy you had (needle biopsy or excision), not sure what inconclusive means. Consider getting a copy of your pathology report and resubmit your question. ...Read more

I had a clear mamo and echo on my right breast- dense tissue and cysts. Still concerned about the really protruding veins on r-breast, is this normal?

Need exam to answer: A normal mammogram and ultrasound is reassuring that there's not a concerning breast finding. If you feel a lump or mass, you should continue to get follow up with your doctor who may want to have it biopsied in the future ...Read more

My mom is going thru chemo after lumpectomy, she noticed a lump in her other breast recently which showed probably benign in her mamo, is this a worry?

Probablecyst: If nodes neg after lumpectomy with adequate margins, lesion in other breast probably benign. This is confirmed on mammo, but dx required even if benign. That is fibroadenoma or cyst. After lumpectomy or mastectomy, remaining breast tissue constantly needs exam since cause of the Ca remains, such as MMTV virus. New lesion in remaining breast can appear at 1%/yr. For up to 15 yrs. ...Read more

Wife has small pea sized lump left breast, it's located on the inner side near the sternum, not quite in breast tissue, to me it feels like muscle knot. She's pregnant. Mamo next week, worry?

Wife has small pea sized lump left breast, it's located on the inner side near the sternum, not quite in breast tissue, to me it feels like muscle knot. She's pregnant. Mamo next week, worry?

Breast lump: If the lump is hard, the first step could be an ultrasound to determine if the lump is a cyst or a solid mass. If she is 40 weeks pregnant, waiting 1-2 more weeks until after the delivery is an appropriate course of action before doing a mammogram. It is most likely an enlarged milk duct or lymph node, but it is important to follow through. ...Read more

My mother 65 years old, went to the dr. For breast lump. After mamo, u/sound she did neddle biopsy. Report shows the 'papillary neoplasm'. What is it?

Excision Needed: "papillary neoplasm" encompasses both benign, pre-cancerous, or malignant lesions, depending on the underlying pathology seen in the entire specimen. Therefore, a needle biopsy is insufficient for diagnosis; excision is necessary. ...Read more

Before pregnancy, I was proud of my firm, b-cup breasts. Now they are saggy and gross. What’s happening? Will they ever be the same again?

Before pregnancy, I was proud of my firm, b-cup breasts. Now they are saggy and gross. What’s happening? Will they ever be the same again?

Tissue is damaged.: What makes young girls have those high shapely breasts is the amount of collagen in their skin and the amount of gravity they've been exposed to. When your breasts expand during pregnancy and lactation, the collagen is stretched and potentially damaged and there is more gravitational pull on the larger breasts. Invest in some really good bras and you will look just fine. ...Read more

My right breast is way larger than my other. (like right is a d and left is a b) how can this be fixed. Will it even out over time? I'm 17

See your doctor: It is possible that this could be due to natural development. There are conditions where one breast can be larger than the other. On occasion this needs to be addressed surgically. See your doctor for further evaluation. ...Read more

Hi. I have been having very odd sharp pain all around my breasts. They have recenty become heavy and bigger in size (I was a B and now a DD in less than a year). I have also noticed that I have a sharp pain in the left side when I breathe. Is this normal?

Hi. I have been having very odd sharp pain all around my breasts. They have recenty become heavy and bigger in size (I was a B and now a DD in less than a year). I have also noticed that I have a sharp pain in the left side when I breathe. Is this normal?

See physician: Pain on breathing can be due to a viral infection of the lining of the lung (pleura) called viral pleurisy. On occasion it can be due to muscle strain in the chest wall or a pulmonary embolus.
Breast cysts can cause pain in various areas of the breast. If persistent see your physician ...Read more

You are normal!: Our culture has an obsession with big breasts. There's nothing wrong with you. If you have a hard time maintaining your weight after your baby is born--and your weight is normal--talk to your doctor about what you can do to gain weight. But gaining weight won't necessarily make your breast bigger. ...Read more
