I have detected a lump in my breast that moves when pressed. Ultrasound-guided core biopsy indicated that it is benign. It is about 3 to 4 centimeters. I am 30 years old. Since it is noncancerous, should I have it surgically removed? What are the side effects of surgery? What is the best course of action?
Are there any known cases of complications during a breast augmentation surgery with a patient that has aplastic anemia? I am scheduled for surgery and have had no luck finding information to help me make an informed decision other than the obvious risk of bleeding due to low platelets.
I am a 51-year-old female perimenopausal woman. My mother got breast cancer when she was 40 (long before her menopause at 52). I have heard that premenopausal breast cancer is different from postmenopausal breast cancer. Will my inherited risk factor decrease after menopause?
If you have a hysterectomy, is it possible to still produce breast milk?
I'm 20 and have noticed that over the past few months my breasts seem like they are getting smaller. I have not lost or gained any weight and my diet hasn't changed. I would think that my clothes are just getting stretched out from being worn so much, but when I try on a new bra or shirt they don't fit the way they would have last year. Is this normal or should I be worried?
My mother had breast cancer when she was 54, and two of my aunts (mom's sisters) were diagnosed with breast cancer. I am 32 years old. Should I be screened for the breast cancer gene?
