Rad Dr wants ductogram. L nipple d/c single pore. Is DCIS still possible on ductogram even though my mamo and sono were normal?

Rad Dr wants ductogram. L nipple d/c single pore. Is DCIS still possible on ductogram even though my mamo and sono were normal?

Not likely: You cannot see DCIS on a ductogram. These studies are rarely done these days. White, yellow, milky and green discharge are considered normal. Bloody discharge is usually caused by a noncancerous mass called a papilloma. I recommend you get examined by a breast specialist before proceeding the a ductogram.

Can you tell me about mammary arteriosclerosis?

Usually resistant: The mammary artery is usually resistant to atherosclerosis and is the best conduit we have for CABG patients. It usually lasts a life time. Most of the time if a mammary artery fails its because of a technical problem with the surgery, poor out flow, or the artery wasn't blocked enough and competetive flow causes the vessel to become atretic.

I've never seen any scientific literature or patient studies that show any real improvement without surgery. I thnk a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon is the right place to start if you are thinking about breast enhancement.
