I'm taking anabolic steroids and I've noticed to develope gynocomastia in my right nipple today noticed painless lump in right armpit, should I worry?

Yes: Yes, you should worry. There are very few reasons for a teenager to take anabolic steroids. Actually none that I can think of. Sure, maybe testosterone for medical purposes such as sexual maturation but this is always done under close supervision and it's never referred to as :anabolic steroids:. So yes, you need to be worried. Talk to doc who's prescribing your steroids. . ...Read more

Scaly, cracked, itchy, leaky nipples and finger webs that don't heal in high humidity. Steroid=temp fix. Also chronic vaginal candidiasis. Related?

For the others, see a dermatologist. ...Read more

I have had a chest infection and been given 6 day course of steroids and I'm asthmatic. Should I expect any bad side effects?

The adverse side effect that is very uncommon but bad is aseptic necrosis of the hip (decreased blood supply). Some people have "psychosis" but this is uncommon. If a person has diabetes this can increase blood sugar. Many more... ...Read more

I have tightness in my chest and I had a chest x ray last week my dr says my x ray shows I smoke but I never have and he gave me steroids?

Smoking is probably the most common cause, however. Other entities and forms of COPD, such as asthma, can cause hyperinflation. There are other causes of emphysema/fibrosis in addition to smoking. What specifically was the chest xray abnormality? ...Read more
