What could cause milky green dual nipple galactorrhea in a male with normal prolactin levels? Ongoing since age 13. Nipples are never stimulated.

Not worrisome: It sounds like this has been going on for a while (12 years). That, and the bilaterality, suggest that this is not something you need to be worried about. Figuring out what the cause is harder. Are the breasts enlarged (gynecomastia)? Are there any medications? Has anyone confirmed galactorrhea (not all discharges contain milk). Assay for altered forms of prolactin (macroprolactin). ...Read more

Is it possible to suffer from hypothyroidism with a TSH within normal range. My TSH is 1.1, but I had a thyroid ultrasound and have a 0.5 cm mass?

Is it possible to suffer from hypothyroidism with a TSH within normal range. My TSH is 1.1, but I had a thyroid ultrasound and have a 0.5 cm mass?

Technically.......: but it would be highly unlikely. If the brain doesnt put out enough TSH, the level of that is low to normal and the other hormones are quite low (thyroid NOT stimulated by TSH). the mass is perhaps NOT related because they are pretty common anyway. ...Read more

Gynecomastia breast tenderness has lasted over yr. Mammogram findings normal/benign with f/u scheduled.  Is time abnormal.  Finasteride  caused.

See answer: Finasteride-induced gynecomastia, either uni- or bi- lateral, is one of the potential side effects of Finasteride (f) that likely does not get the attention it deserves. Usually improves or resolves after stopping f but not always. Almost always benign, but rare cases of breast cancer have been reported.

Is having decreased menstrual blood flow than normal for two consecutive cycles a cause for serious concern for a woman of 24 years?

Is having decreased menstrual blood flow than normal for two consecutive cycles a cause for serious concern for a woman of 24 years?

Not necessarily: The amount of flow depends on the balance of estrogen and progesterone . The more estrogen the more uterine lining grows and the more you have to bleed off. Progesterone is produced after ovulation and makes the lining stop growing and get mature. If ovulation is early you will have less time for the lining to grow. ...Read more

Is a peak flow of 300 a reason to be concerned in a 58 year old 5 ft 7, normal weight?

Is a peak flow of 300 a reason to be concerned in a 58 year old 5 ft 7, normal weight?

Normal is 370: You are just barely in the green assuming your normal peak flow is 370. A number of assumptions. You probably have some underlying disorder like asthma or COPD causing your peak flow to be lower? Green means that you are ok, yellow range would be from 300 to 185 and below 185 is the red range. Red range, seek medical attention. Yellow range - you should have a plan with your regular physician. ...Read more
