Yellow/orange crusting in both nipples, pain in breasts & occasional sharp pain behind nipples. With Symptoms in both breasts; can Paget's be ruled out?

Not likely Paget's: Paget's disease of the nipple arises from a deeper breast cancer extending up to the nipple surface, so often presents in just one breast. Very very unlikely to have sudden simultaneous development of breast cancer with Paget's disease in both breasts. You should see a physician for proper diagnosis and treatment recommendations. ...Read more

No smoking or very very little occasional Marijuana use, have "minor" chest congestion, constant throat, chest tickle, no cold symptoms. I'm 35 yr old?

Bronchiitis: Sounds like it might be a touch of bronchitis that is viral in nature. You likely don't need antibiotics, and could just "tough it out". But if you are constantly coughing and clearing your throat you could try over the counter anti tussive medication such as dextromethorphan = robitussin (guaifenesin) or delsym. But if that does not work there are prescription based meds such as benzonatate. ...Read more

Does lymphoma present with symptoms? Swollen lymph node pea size x7 months. Normal labs, CT & chest X-ray. Somewhat tired, occasional itching.

Does lymphoma present with symptoms? Swollen lymph node pea size x7 months. Normal labs, CT & chest X-ray. Somewhat tired, occasional itching.

Node biopsy possibly: A persistent swollen isolated node for seven months may be related to a number of causes. I would suggest a visit with your PCP. Sometimes infections and drainage to the affected lymph node is the underlying cause rather than malignancy. If the node needs to be biopsied then a surgical referral can be made. Small moveable nodes tend to be benign.
Tissue diagnosis is usually quite definitive. ...Read more

Trust your physician: Or obtain a pulmonary medical consultation as a second opinion. Without symptoms such as weight loss. Anorexia, expectorating pure blood. Chronic spasmodic coughing, etc. This is not consistent with lung cancer, especially with a negative CT scan. I suggest behavioral counseling with a certified psychotherpist for CBT. ...Read more

"what are the symptoms for sensitive bosoms, and tender nipples? " I really can't explain how this feels but im really in pain.

Common problem: Fibrocystic disease/changes is very common in women. This is most often seen during the menstrual cycle. Breast feel lumpy and painful which is caused by cyst formation (fluid filled areas) due to hormonal changes. Some women may have these changes without being on their menstrual cycle. Caffeine may cuase the cysts to be overactive resulting in pain. This is not related to cancer.
