Breast pain: Pain is the most common problem involving the breast. Usually benign. But if the symptom is focal and persists, you should tell your doctor. An ultrasound and or mammogram may be required for evaluation in some circumstances. Breast cancer is extremely rare at your age, but not unheard of. Never ignore a lump -even if its been there for a while. Your doctor can help to decide if testing is needed. ...Read more

Thorough checkup: I'd recommend following up with your pcp. Either the reflux isn't well controlled and you may need to see a gastroenterologist, or this isn't reflux and there's some other underlying process that's not being treated. Your pcp will help sort out what to do next. ...Read more

Left breast swells immensely & hurts (7/10) for around 8-10 days before my cycle. My left ovary also cramps & cysts' before cycles (8/9months) i'm 22?

"Immensely"?: How is this something you even need to ask online? If one breast balloons up monthly with your cycle and causes pain, you need it evaluated, by your gyn--ideally while it is swollen. Will need ultrasound for ovarian cyst evaluation and for breast and may need fine needle biopsy. See your gyn asap. ...Read more

Pregnancy Question: If you have a full period - then you aren't pregnant. But if you have any doubt as to whether this is your actual period then you can take an early response type pregnancy test now or wait until you would have had your normal period and take a regular home pregnancy test at that time. May just be some menstrual irregularity. Take care. ...Read more

Breast exam: Have you had a careful breast exam by your md? This could have been muscular discomfort affected by motion. Other causes of sternal and chest discomfort include inflammation of the joint at the connection of the rib with the sternum(this would be tender to touch), rib cage strain, pinched intercostal nerve(runs between ribs). Any history of injury? Have an exam by your md if the discomfort recurs. ...Read more

Being sent for diagnostic mammo, u/s and biopsy, for 8mm X 6mm mass at 9 o'clock position left breast. Should i be worried?

Being sent for diagnostic mammo, u/s and biopsy, for 8mm X 6mm mass at 9 o'clock position left breast.  Should i be worried?

The probability: of malignancy is based on various mammographic/sonographic characteristics, and is the basis for the BIRADS code at the bottom of the report. Since biopsy was recommended, it is probably at least a BIRADS 4A(low suspicion,3-10% chance of maliganancy) up to BIRADS 5(>95% chance). Can't say much more without further details or images. About 75% of all biopsies turn out benign. ...Read more
