Moms mom has green eyes mom has brown eyes dads whole family has brown. I have brown my baby's dad has blue what percentage chance will baby have blue?

Depends: You either have two brown genes which means your children will all have brown eyes, or you have one blue and one brown which means 50% of your children will be blue. However not all genes are pure brown or pure blue so there is some uncertainty in these numbers due to greenish and hazel hues which alter the statistics. ...Read more

My wife says she has been experiencing sharp pains in breasts, sore nipples and pink. She has been breast feeding our new borne. Should we be worried?

Probably not: In the first few days and sometimes week or two of breastfeeding it can be painful. This is especially true if first child. There are many things you can do to relieve pain and the la leche league can be a good resource. If there is localized heat or redness or you have a fever there may be an infection and should see a provider to confirm. Even with infection you do not have to stop feeding. ...Read more

Nipple ins and outs: As long as the breast itself is self examined by you monthly after a period and there are no lumps or nipple discharges then after 9 years there really isn't a reason to be concerned.

My mother has stage 3 breast cancer. Could she still battle it?

My mother has stage 3 breast cancer. Could she still battle it?

Yes, curable: Although it can be a difficult treatment with a combination of surgery, chemotherapy and possibly radiation, most of these treatments are aimed at getting rid of the cancer and preventing it from coming back.

Im a 16 year old boy and my nipple has swollen and a small hard thing has grown under it, can anyone help?

Transient change: About a half of males will undergo a transient nipple/breast enlargement at the onset of puberty. Normally it will resolve slowly as other hormonal changes kick in over about a year. Less often it can persist over 3 years and surgery may be needed for cosmetic improvement. Carrying around extra weight can aggravate the issue as fat can masquerade as breast tissue. ...Read more

My daughter is 11 years old. She has a painful pimple like bump under her nipple of her breast. What could it be?

Breast bud? Abscess?: You're describing a "pimple-like" mass under the nipple in a preadolescent. If there's actually any drainage, or if there is redness or expanding borders, it may be an infection such as an abscess or cellulitis, requiring medical intervention. If none of these markers exist and there's simply a lump behind the nipple, this is a common finding, associated with fluctuating hormones. Your call! ...Read more
