Mammogram showed grape size white area. Had view redone because breast tissue wasn't compressed. 2nd test the "grape" not there. Why? Concerned?

Try not to worry : This is common and a big source of confusion and concern for patients. When taking the picture of the breast, tissue sometimes randomly overlaps and will appear denser (white) than it should. This happens roughly 10% of the time. The only way to know this isn't cancer is to take another picture. If it disappears (it usually does) then you know it's tissue overlap, not cancer. I hope this helps! ...Read more

Patient had cauterized her nose in ER but her nose still bleeds any remedies such as grape seed oil might help if put inside nose thanks in advance ?

Nose bleed: Hello, i would recommend an afrin (oxymetazoline) soaked cotton ball be placed in the side that was cauterized. Replace this as needed. Keep your head back with your nose pointed to the ceiling. Blood, drainage and clots will pass to the back of your throat. Just spit these out. This position will decrease the blood flow to the nose and stop the bleeding. ...Read more

Full face: I'm not aware of any topical treatments that can make the face "fuller". It usually has to do with genetics and underlying musculature and fat distribution. The best and safest things you can do are to keep well hydrated, avoid smoking, and use sunscreen daily. Best of luck. ...Read more
