Okay so update to my last question, the lymph node by my boob is still sore, its not swollen, just hurts when I touch it.?

Get examined!: This is not normal. If you have not been seen, then you should. Serious things could be causing this and you would not want to delay. Not all enlargement and tenderness is due to infection. Depending on your age and other risks and issues, you may need a diagnositc mammogram, an ultrasound of the area or even an MRI of the breast. Start with a history, exam and then go from there. Antibiotics? ...Read more

Hi yes when I went wipe I had pink spotting today my boob's are sore was it implantation bleeding?

Hi yes when I went wipe I had pink spotting today my boob's are sore was it implantation bleeding?

May be: More information is needed to answer the question. However, implantation bleeding is not a reliable sign. If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

Yes I had pink spotting today that came and left and my boob's are sore and back hurt is implantation light pink 10 dpo today?

Can't really tell: Wait. A positive pregnancy test can tell a woman that prior spotting was actually implantation spotting. It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. ...Read more

Black lump under boob for about 2 wks. I thought it was from a bad underwire or a pimple. It's not sore now but was initially.

Abnormal: It is difficult to guess what this could be without a visual examination, but this sounds abnormal enough that you should see your doctor or a gynecologist to see if this needs imaging or a biopsy. You'll want to know what potential this has to be a cancer. Hopefully you don't have any family history ...Read more

I have a fibroadenoma in my right breast. I found it last march and since then it has gotten bigger. It makes my boob very sore. Isremoval necessary?

I have a fibroadenoma in my right breast. I found it last march and since then it has gotten bigger. It makes my boob very sore. Isremoval necessary?

Usually not: A fibroadenoma is benign by definition, and soreness is also not associated with cancer, so that if your description is accurate there is no need to remove it. The increased size is of some concern and you might need a needle biopsy to confirm the diagnosis if that has not been done. Cutting back on caffeine--coffee, sodas, chocolate--may help with the soreness. ...Read more

My boob's r sore and I squeezed the nipple and clear liquids was coming out. Wht should I do?

Breast self exam: A clear nipple discharge is not something to worry about. It is normal gland secretions. Worry about a bloody or milky discharge or new masses or thickening on self exam. Tenderness can be due to several things including trauma and fibrocystic breast change. The fibrocystic breast changes are normal, occur in 90% of women by age 40, and are aggravated (made more pronounced) by caffeine.Keep examining ...Read more
