Can foreplay with breasts lead to breast cancer?

No: Cancer results from things that alter the chemistry of the nucleic acids in the epithelial cells and/or causes the cells to proliferate; fondling can no more produce this than it can give a woman a sunburn.

Do inverted nipples have a higher chance of breast sheet cancer?

Do inverted nipples have a higher chance of breast sheet cancer?

Maybe: Inverted nipple or nipples may be long standing or of sudden onset. Those of sudden onset would be more worrying, especially if on one side. There are many benign causes of nipple inversion (see http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/inverted_nipple).

However, breast cancer can cause distortion of the breast tissue and lead to nipple inversion. Inversion, especially unilateral, should be checked by doc. ...Read more

Hey, so my boyfriend is gonna give me a hickey on top of my breast not near the nipple or anything if he does will it cost cancer or anything and how long till it goes away?

A bruise: A hickey is a bruise. Biting or sucking the skin breaks tiny blood vessels and makes them bleed which causes a bruise. It won't cause cancer but it will take at least a week, if not longer, to heal up and disappear. And don't believe anyone who tells you toothpaste will make it heal faster! ...Read more

Nipple droop is symptom of breast cancer?

Possibly: Most patients with breast cancer will have either no symptoms or a lump in the breast.

This is not the most typical presentation, but it can happen. ...Read more

The side of my nipple is slightly dimpling was that mean I have a breast cancer?

The side of my nipple is slightly dimpling was that mean I have a breast cancer?

See breast doctor.: Dimpling of the skin and/or nipple inversion are both breast changes that can be associated with breast cancer, therefore, I recommend that you see your primary care doctor for a referral to a breast specialist. Depending on your age and examination findings, they may want to get a mammogram +/- ultrasound. Of course, there are many false alarms, but it's better to prove that it's not a cancer. ...Read more

If they take off your boob when you have breast cancer, what do they do with the nipple?

Removed or spared: Occasionally, the nipple and skin can be spared with a mastectomy, depending on the size of the breast, the size of the tumor, and how close the tumor is to the nipple. If there is tumor in close proximity to the nipple, the nipple and areola are removed with the breast tissue, and a new nipple and areola can be reconstructed later. ...Read more

You cannot be sure until you see a doctor for a physical examination & possibly a mammogram. ...Read more

When I press my right Brest just below the nipple I feel some pain and the pain started yesterday. Could it be breast cancer.

No cancer: cancer for the most part, when related to breast, starts in the ductal system and progresses to invade breast tissue with the appearance of a mass but no pain. This is followed by skin dimpling and again no pain. The latter is mostly induced by dilated milk ducts secondary to fibrocystic mastopathy. Have mammo to confirm. ...Read more
