Benign Breast Lumps

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?

Breast Implants with Aplastic Anemia

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.

Menopause and Breast Cancer Risk

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?

Changing Breast Size

  • Posted on: 18 September 2009

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?
