Go to see MD: You should see your doctor to get yourself checked. Mammogram an ultrasound of the breast likely be needed to further evaluate the breast lump. It may be a cyst/fibrocystic disease of the breast- however due to your significant history of cancer in the family- it is definitely needed to be checked. Also discuss with your mother - the need for her to get a genetic testing for brca 1 and 2. ...Read more

Can breast cancer look like a pimple?

Can breast cancer look like a pimple?

Not usually: There are a number of different types of breast cancers and they can have different appearences including a generalized inflamation of the breast -- like a bad rash or sunburn. If the pimple is limited to the skin and not connected to a deeper mass it is unlikely to be anything other than just a pimple. How big is this pimple? If it does not resolve in a week or 2 have an md look at it. ...Read more

No: Some skin lesions on the breast can be cancer, but these usually happen to older patients and they have nothing to "pop". This is probably a small skin lesion, often called an inclusion cyst. They can get infected or irritated. It may come back but a surgeon can easily remove it if it does. ...Read more

Probable cyst: Sounds like pimple was in the skin of the breast and not arising within breast tissue. It is not uncommon to have lesions arise in the skin of the breast. Other than for some rare inflammatory tumors, the cyst like growths are usually sebaceous in origin and have what appears to be a whitehead which when poped may relaease some sebaceous material. ...Read more

I'm taking diane-35  for acne but i'm worried about side effects, can it really cause breast cancer? And do you recommend this pill overall?

OCPs and Acne: I always offer ocps (oral contraceptive pills) as therapy for women with acne. There is always risk with any medicine, but i don't think ocps cause breast cancer. If you have family risk, you should consult with your doctor before taking it. ...Read more

Does pressing breasts hard or normally pressing them n sucking on nipples cause breast cancer ?

Does pressing breasts hard or normally pressing them n sucking on nipples cause breast cancer ?

This can manifest with similar symptoms to breast cancer on occasion (lumps, pain, bruising, etc). However, pressing on the breast and nipple-sucking (even if traumatic) does not cause breast cancer. ...Read more
