Lyme Disease Cause Breast Cancer
I have red itchy spots randomly all over my legs, stomach & chest. They itch horribly. I do have Lyme disease could it be related or other causes?!
Not sure of the:
Context. Lyme disease is an infection. It can have a rash and would need treatment. Mostly people mean "I think I might have had lyme disease sometime in the past". And the organism would certainly be entirely gone with treatment. While one can have an injury from it, it is less likely to have rash from treated lyme than treated gunshot wound.
THen, inflammations, infections, circulatory issues . ...Read more
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Would there have to be bulleyes mark on body for Lyme disease? Been experiencing chest pain/Sleep disturbances. Heart Tests were norm. Not Lyme Carditis?
Not always a rash: The classic bullseye rash is not necessary to diagnoses lyme's. If you live in an area with many deer ticks and there is a possibility that one was on your body for more than 24-36 hours, it would be beneficial to go in to clinic to discuss blood testing for lyme's disease. ...Read more
I recently got diagnosed with late Lyme disease. Could my shortness of breath, lightheadedness, chest pain, and rapid heart beat be related to this?
What causes breast cancer in people under 40 if there is no family history of the disease and no smoking involved?
No: There is no evidence of the type of clothing, type of bra, underwire or not, bra or not, that there is any relationship to breast cancer. ...Read more
Not necessarily: Breast cancer that is small and has not spread from the breast is considered a localized disease, making it easier to treat and less chance of recurrence. Cancer that has spread to the lymph nodes indicates that it may have spread to other sites and may be a systemic condition, making it harder to treat. ...Read more
Perhaps, but...: Perhaps, but it also raises awareness about the disease, provides an opportunity for friends & family to support survivors, raises money to help others, and allows people to memorialize those that may have succumbed to this cancer. I have seen a lot of good that has come from these events but its clearly not for everyone. ...Read more
Depends: Most benign breast findings do not lead to or cause breast cancer. Some breast tissue biopsies can show benign but possibly pre-cancerous cells, such as atypical ductal hyperplasia or lobular neoplasia (for example). You would need to discuss any breast biopsy results and their possible risks with your doctor. ...Read more

Exam,Mamm,(sono)Gram: Fibrocystic changes may interfere w/breast examination and/or mammography. Nevertheless, using these modalities along w/breast ultrasound, we can usually distinguish between the two. Rarely, we need to check an MRI or even do a breast biopsy to evaluate a suspicious lump or mammographic abnormality. ...Read more
I wore my mom's, aunt's, and my sister's USED bras now will anyone of us get any diseases like breast cancer or any other diseases?
You'll be fine: First, let me reassure you. One guy in ten cross-dresses because it's a turn-on. It's cool; you might not want to tell all your friends about this side of yourself, but you can probably let your romantic partners know about it early-on as many will find it an endearing feature of who you are. You are at no risk for breast cancer, either catching or transmitting. ...Read more
If my father sisters are died because of breast cancer how many chances of mine to develop this disease?
How many? how old?:
Breast cancer affects one in seven women, so having an aunt or two with breast cancer is not unusual.
More important, though, is to know how old they were. If they were under-age 45, that is cause for concern.
Make sure that you follow breast cancewr screening guidelines when the time comes. For now, I would just pay particular attention if you develop any unusual lumps.
Early diagnosis = key. ...Read more
Two different things: Paget's disease of the breast is a particular type of breast cancer that starts under the nipple. Most are very treatable, but like any other breast cancer — advanced cases may metastasize. Paget's disease of the bone is a chronic problem that is not realted to cancer. ...Read more
Why is breast cancer considered such an important a disease but less is heard about other cancers?
Power in advertising: Breast cancer occurs in women mostly and women have identified with this cancer. The attention women have brought to this cancer is amazing and has used advertising to gain awareness. Lung, colon, prostate, etc have not had the attention like breast cancer but have higher death rates. ...Read more
Both are form of Can: The Paget disease of the breast is a form of cancer which presents on the surface of the breast, in and around the nipple and areola. It is sometimes mistaken for a benign skin condition because of the itching, redness and crusting of the nipple. But there is often an associated mass/lump in the deeper part of the breast which can be confirmed with mammography. Both conditions are treated similarl. ...Read more
More info needed!: "Parenchyma" is a generic term and does not necessarily refer to a specific disease entity or any specific associated risk. Ask your physician for more information and clarification. ...Read more
Skin Invasion : Paget's "disease" reflects the presence of breast cancer cells within the skin layers of the nipple. It is usually associated with a cancer of the breast. The cells probably get to the niipple skin by migrating through the milk ducts. ...Read more

Can't avoid cancer: You should live a healthy life, eat well, exercise, limit alcohol and avoid illicit drugs, risky sex, and any kind of tobacco. Be aware of those risk factors you can't change (like family history) and discuss it with your doc to get the age and risk-specific screening tests for you. Sadly, nobody can totally avoid cancer or illness in general so do your best to enjoy the gift of every day. ...Read more
My mother had breast cancer age 43 but there is no familial deaseas so why did it happen to her and is it possible that I get this disease later on?
Majority: The vast majority of women who get breast cancer do not have family history of breast cancer. You mother should have undergone testing for the breast cancer genes brca1 and brca2. This would also help to determine your risk of breast cancer. ...Read more
Do great-aunts having breast cancer affect risk for this disease? Or is it only first-degree relatives, (mom, sister, daughter)? 2 great-aunts had it.
Depends: First degree relatives have more "punch" when talking about cancer risk but it depends greatly on the composition and the size of the family. Also, depends on the ages at which the patients developed cancer and whether there are other types of cancer in the family. Talk to your gyn or pcp, maybe you need to see a professional with expertise in cancer genetics and risk assessment. ...Read more
When given 3 to 6 months prognosis, because of metastic breast cancer that has returned 3 times now to brain, what will the body/disease do as result?
It depends: The degree of control of the brain tumor is important. Although it has returned, the question is whether all avenues such as surgery, gamma knife or both have been used to control the brain tumors. With respect to the rest of the body, imaging/staging studies should be done to see how extensive the breast cancer is. That is, has it gone to the liver or lung or bone? That would make a big difference. ...Read more
No, but...: All women at some time have some changes we used to call "fibrocystic disease". Fibrosis and cysts pose no risk. If a woman has sclerosing adenosis or one of the atypical epithelial hyperplasias, her risk for a subsequent breast cancer is somewhat increased. I'd urge old-fashioned self-exam at the same time each month for all women, with biopsy of any dominant mass. ...Read more
NO: Fibrocystic disease is now termed fibrocystic change and by itself is not associated with increased risk for breast cancer. However, regular breast self examinations and mammograms are still recommended. ...Read more
Biopsy: Biopsy will be needed to definitively differentiate paget;s disease of the breast or eczema. ...Read more
Occurs when glandular cells lining the milk ducts and lobules of the human breast begin to grow in an unregulated manner. Often curable if found early and treated effectively with surgery, hormonal therapy, chemotherapy and targeted therapy, or a combination thereof. Early detection before the malignancy becomes large enough to be felt depends on mammography/sonography and MRI imaging of the breast ...Read more
Most breast cancers are carcinomas. This is a type of breast cancer. These cancers start in the cells that line organs and tissues. In fact, breast cancers are often a type of carcinoma called adenocarcinoma, which starts in cells that make glands (glandular tissue).
