ADH (vasopressin) - risk marker: Long term, ADH (vasopressin) is a marker for elevated risk (2.5-4x's) and warrants increased screening (?Bmri) and possible chemoprevention.

I'd choose not to.: A diagnosis of atypical ductal hyperplasia on a biopsy means we need to do surgery to remove the area out. If in case that diagnosis was made on a surgically removed specimen and if it was completely removed then it does not need any additional surgery. Sometimes tamoxifen can be used to follow up as a medical treatment but i would not recommend natural drugs for this diagnosis. ...Read more
Breast cancer marker: ADH (vasopressin) is an abnormal proliferation of breast duct cells that is benign but is associated with present or future breast cancer. ADH (vasopressin) is suspected on mammograms with microcalcifications and is diagnosed on needle biopsy and usually requires surgical excision. About 30% of excisions for ADH (vasopressin) will show cancer. For the other 70% of women the risk of developing breast cancer over the next 8 years is 3.7%. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

To have a second opinion about the need of removing a fibroadenoma 5.5×5.2×2.4 CM with usual focal hyperplasia ductal in right breast. ?
Sure.: It's always OK to get a second opinion, especially when surgery is involved. See a breast surgeon. A breast mass measuring 5cm is quite large, and a biopsy only removes and tests a tiny piece of it. Without removing the whole mass, it's hard to know for sure that it's benign (not cancer). ...Read more

My eyes dry out too quickly. Been told its due to blocked tear ducts/glands. What can I do to unblock them?
Dry eyes: Are due to a deficiency or an imbalance of the three components of your tear film. Ocular surface inflammation can also contribute to the symptoms, but this is not related to blocked tear ducts. Dry eyes are often not curable but can be managed well with various types of drops. You should see your ophthalmologist to discuss these treatment options. ...Read more
Perscribed 50 tramadols 50mg.Told to take 4/day 1 every 4-6hrs. In that case when do I refill and do I have to take 4? Its for bile duct stonepain.Sos
Problem: This is a big problem in my practice also. When i write an rx for pain medication and use those open end directions then patients tend think that they must take as directed on the bottle. The key word is adding 'as needed' on the prescription. I would look at the directions as a guideline to the maximal number you should take. If you do not need to take the pain medication, take as needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
