Are there natural drugs to take to treat atypical ductal hyperplasia?

Are there natural drugs to take to treat atypical ductal hyperplasia?

I'd choose not to.: A diagnosis of atypical ductal hyperplasia on a biopsy means we need to do surgery to remove the area out. If in case that diagnosis was made on a surgically removed specimen and if it was completely removed then it does not need any additional surgery. Sometimes tamoxifen can be used to follow up as a medical treatment but I would not recommend natural drugs for this diagnosis. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with atypical ductal hyperplasia. I wasn't told much?

ADH (vasopressin) - risk marker: Long term, ADH (vasopressin) is a marker for elevated risk (2.5-4x's) and warrants increased screening (? Bmri) and possible chemoprevention. When found on a core biopsy, the standard is for open biopsy obtaining additional tissue to provide context for the pathology to exclude upgrading to dcis. It does not need to be completely excised with margins. ...Read more

What exactly is atypical ductal hyperplasia (adh)?

What exactly is atypical ductal hyperplasia (adh)?

Breast cancer marker: ADH (vasopressin) is an abnormal proliferation of breast duct cells that is benign but is associated with present or future breast cancer. ADH (vasopressin) is suspected on mammograms with microcalcifications and is diagnosed on needle biopsy and usually requires surgical excision.

To have a second opinion about the need of removing a fibroadenoma 5.5×5.2×2.4 CM with usual focal hyperplasia ductal in right breast.?

To have a second opinion about the need of removing a fibroadenoma 5.5×5.2×2.4 CM with usual focal hyperplasia ductal in right breast.?

Sure.: It's always OK to get a second opinion, especially when surgery is involved. See a breast surgeon. A breast mass measuring 5cm is quite large, and a biopsy only removes and tests a tiny piece of it. Without removing the whole mass, it's hard to know for sure that it's benign (not cancer). ...Read more

Need medical checkup: It is not uncommon to have some numbness/heaviness after surgery in any area of your body. This can take up 1 to 2 years to completely normalize. But you should have annual clinical breast examinations with your doctor who did breast surgery and seek his advice. An annual mammogram is also recommended. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma 11 years ago, but I prefer to follow a naturopathic doctor, may I know your opinion about naturophatic medicine?

No: People should stick with our regular allopathic medicine. There are as many ways to practice regular allopathic medicine as there are doctors. Each doctor is a little different in personality and practice style. After all, we're all human. I don't recommend any other types of "doctors". ...Read more

Taking medicine to dissolve gall stone, will it create blockage in bile duct or along the path? Advice me.

Taking medicine to dissolve gall stone, will it create blockage in bile duct or along the path? Advice me.

Not usually: The standard treatment for gallstone removal is to remove where they are formed: the gallbladder. Other means may be used to dissolve gallstones, such as pills, lithotripsy, or even "gallbladder flushes": these all fail to permanently solve the problem, and, in the case of the "flush", may be dangerous if stones get stuck in the bile duct. Thankfully, surgery is usually out-pt, safe, and easy. ...Read more
