See below: There is conflicting and contradictory research about the benefits of supplements for prostate symptoms. Saw palmetto most studied. Despite much anecdotal evidence suggesting benefit(s) from the supplements you mention, high quality and more reliable research seem to indicate that these supplements have little or no benefit for reducing bph-related symptoms. Very high placebo response. ...Read more

Bust size: Anise, fennel, fenugreek red clover & red raspberry may cause galactorrhea (breast milk production) but does not mean that you would have lasting breast enlargement. See: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/galactorrhea/basics/causes/con-20025628 ...Read more

Can you see veins on color doppler during breast ultrasound? I saw it on u/s image and asked and dr said normal, blood vessels in breast? Nursing too

Can you see veins on color doppler during breast ultrasound? I saw it on u/s image  and asked and dr said normal, blood vessels in breast? Nursing too

Yes: A color doppler does show blood flow and does show arteries and veins. Since arteries and veins tend to have blood flowing in opposite directions, the color doppler will show this as a red or blue signal. The breast normally does have arteries and veins within it and these will increase during pregnancy and breast feeding. Your doctor was right. ...Read more
