Breast "knots": Changes in the breasts are best evaluated by a doctor. A lump requires careful investigation. Pain is not a reliable indicator of the presence or absence of cancer. Please see your doctor. ...Read more

I have undiagnosed lupus. We still take tests but i show many signs. I have recently noticed some new bumps on my forearm that are clustered together. I also have one on my neck and one on my breast.

Lupus?: Why do you think it is lupus? Have you consulted with a rheumatologist? If so and "many tests were done" and it is still "undiagnosed" then it most likely not lupus and there is something else going on. If you have not seen a rheumatologist, then it is time to do so and to trust the advice they give you. ...Read more

Bronchitis, lupus and dull, achy pain above right breast..Slight swelling to collarbone. Xray, mammo and us all neg...35 yr female?

Hmm. I'm not sure.: The area above your breast and below your collarbone has muscles, blood vessels, lymph nodes and breast tissue. Your lupus puts you at risk for blood clots, so that's one thought. You have bronchitis, and if you're coughing you could have muscle pain/spasm of your pectoral muscles. Inflammation of lymph nodes in that area is also a possibility. Make sure the ultrasound checked for a blood clot. ...Read more

Symptom:ringing in the ear, stopped- up ear, yellow runny mucus with foul smell. Taking allergy medicine on daily basis. What's up female  age 61, breast cancer survivor, lupus

Hello, : Hello, you may have an upper respiratory tract infection. Congestion can place pressure against the eustacian tubes, so that they are not draining the ears of fluid and pressure with resultant pain and ear ringing (tinnitus). The congestion can also cause a headache. The mucus could be coming from a variety of places including your nose or a sinus. Recommend that you see an ear/ nose/throat specialist. I hope you are feeling better soon. Take care. ...Read more

Honest: This is not a case for HealthTap. You need a 1-1 evaluation by a neurologist and/or rheumatologist. The efforts of the available HealthTap MD's have been outstanding as far as they could go In fact, if you are near the Mayo or Lahey clinics, then you should go there for an inter-discipline evaluation. In absolutely no sense of criticism, you have been through what I call "too much:" and need important psychological support to help you work this thru. H. Robert Silverstein, MD, FACC ...Read more
