breast

Avatar n tn If someone can, please help me figure out what this is. And what the youngest age of breast cancer is. thank you.
656157 tn?1224641403 The chances of breast cancer are only slightly increased but it does kill off the thyroid cancer (which is good!). Do you know if it is a genetic breast cancer (BRCA 1 or 2?) - that would be triggered by the genetic mutation and estrogen, not so much from radiation. Feel free to PM me about any of this. You may also want to start your own thread so more people can answer.
Avatar f tn I had a bi-rad 3 and yet I have breast cancer. They are supposed to call and schedule my MRI this morning. Dr is feeling lumpectomy and radiation will take care of it. I am in such shock. I am only 39, my youngest child just turned 4. I don't even know what to ask.
Avatar m tn I was just wondering if anybody has ever heard of such a young woman being diagnosed with breast cancer. The youngest we can find so far is 16 years old. I cannot comprehend that my daughter is the only one.
Avatar n tn I had a double mastectomy when they found a 1.5 cm tumor in my left breast. I insisted on the double mastectomy and they found cancer in my other breast which did not show at all on mammogram.
Avatar n tn I've had 3 biopsies. My husband is always sure they'll be benign. I am always scared they'll be cancer even tho we both heard what the doctor said. Fortunately, all 3 of my biopsies were benign. As women, we tend to worry a lot about breast biopsies. At the same time, you need to know that a high percentage of birad 4 biopsies for calcs are benign. There's a great chance you'll be just fine.
967168 tn?1477588089 I know I shouldn't worry but I've ignored symptoms for a year that points to Endometrial Cancer and it's a common cancer that can be caught early and treated. Here's where I'm beating myself with worry, I haven't had a GYN exam since 2007 and I've been going to the same dr since 1998 so he knows me and my symptoms very well.
Avatar f tn Over the years i thought ive had testicular cancer, (yes im a guy), lou garrigs disease, early parkinsons, certain mouth diseases, throat cancer, male breast cancer, intestinal cancer, brain tumours, skin cancer, muscular dystrophy...etc...does it ever end? i feel like if it keeps going on like this im really going to go insane, and i dont mean this as an exaggeration, i just dont think my mind can take it and i dont have the mental fortitude for this.
1271365 tn?1306763979 I am basically scared. I am scared because my grandmother died of Breast cancer at the age of 60 i was little when she died. I am not questioning the Dr. I want to be sure i do not have to get tests that i do not need the cost of the testing is what worries me and also i am scared. I have insurance but the outer cost is what scares me as well.I can't afford a lot and i am living pay check to pay check one illness can cost me right into the poor house.
Avatar f tn My youngest sister was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and the anguish of the possibilities is almost too much to contemplate. Peace be with you.
Avatar n tn Some forms are easier to treat and slower growing (like thyroid cancer) but it is still something that needs to be taken seriously and removed. Consider it like you would cancer anywhere else. If you had a lump in your breast that big that you knew was cancer would you have it out?? There is one good thing about thyroid cancer over other cancers. Now don't get me wrong - I'm **NOT** saying that it is a "good cancer" - some people think so but I don't.
Avatar f tn I have gone to the doctor so many times and they always tell me maybe it is my lympnodes or cancer.. I had a breast ultrasound done and there is no trace of cancer. I had blood work done and there is no traceof infection so... Upon removal of this tissue they are going to send it out for testing. I am very anxious to get this procedure done. The surgeon advised me the procedure will take 30-45 minutes and of course it is Same Day Surgery. I will let everyone know how it goes.
Avatar n tn I miss him everyday. I am now watching my mother in law suffer with liver cancer. She started with breast cancer 3 years ago and it has spread from there. Her husband made a very hard decision on the 31st of Oct. He declined anymore treatments for her. And we put her on hospice. If anyone has the opportunity to use the hospice program, please do. It is wonderful. I see my mother in law suffer and it breaks my heart.
Avatar n tn You want to be seeing a surgeon who specializes in breast cancer (not your obgyn). Young breast cancers are rare; but they are happening more and more often. Take it from me; you'd rather catch a stage I and do lumpectomy with radiation rather than be in my shoes! I think the youngest recorded death from IBC is 12. Good luck, hopefully it's nothing. I would stress about it; but I would see a specialist and make sure it is indeed nothing.
Avatar f tn no breast cancer to my knowledge. however there is cancer in my family. my father survived testicular cancer, he was 38. my mother cervical. both living. maternal grandfather died of cancer of the esophagus. uncles and aunts (maternal side) lung cancer and died. i had nipple retraction off and on for the past two years. itchy skin...but no noticable difference in appearance other than more moles appearing on my left breast. i have swollen lymph nodes all through my neck and armpits.
146866 tn?1199599344 Unfortunately, lung cancer often produces no symptoms until it is at an advanced stage. Symptoms of lung cancer include shortness of breath, persistent cough, coughing up blood, pain when coughing, fatigue, weight loss, loss of appetite, hoarseness, chest pain, recurring bouts of bronchitis and/or pneumonia. Less common symptoms which are usually associated with advanced lung cancer are difficulty swallowing, swelling of the face, swelling in the neck, pain under the ribs on the right side.
Avatar n tn Went to a different massage therapist who really presssed too hard and the pain got worse. I had breast cancer seven years ago, so immediately called my oncologist, had a cat scan of the chest. Nothing. Went to my family doctor, who noted my back under she shoulder blade, under the arm and breast area was all sore to the touch. He gave me muscle relexants and said to take ibuprofen. That has helped, but the pain flared again today.
Avatar f tn This most recent episode began with a rash, burning, as well as breast discomfort. My right breast which is the one that always flares up began to feel heavy and became painful. I was evaluated by my NP and she gave me a shot of Rocephine and started me on keflex. Over the next few days my symptoms worsened and the pain as well as a lump was discovered in my breast. I then was given an additional shot of Rocephine followed by a steroid injection.
Avatar f tn My moms sister had ovarian cancer when she was in her 20s. My mothers mother died when my mom was 8 years old of cancer so I have a lot of history of it on my mothers side. I am not sure about my fathers side though because I never met him. I only know he had the same kind of arrhythmias like me and he had heart disease, he died suddenly at age 51 and his father also suddenly at age 50. I know no one here can tell me what my lump is but maybe someone has been through something similar?
Avatar f tn My grandmother's youngest sister died of breast cancer in her 40's and her oldest sister died at 82 of bladder cancer. But on the web site of the hospital where my mother died it says that women with a close female relative, a mother, daughter or sister, with endometrial cancer are twicwe as likely to get it.
Avatar n tn The oldest (me) and youngest with cancer (24) both had to have RAI. The 24 year-old because of spread had 3 courses of RAI. I initially didn't have RAI but my thyroid cancer came back this year (3 years following surgery) and I've been through one course of RAI so far. Try to get some rest and enjoy yourself during the holidays. Don't let this consume you.
Avatar f tn My husband seems to not think about it acts like this is just like any other time in our lives, and it's not. we may be facing cancer. and he just ingnores it. Maybe I think to much. Just wonder sometimes how one prepares for all this. I don't think I know how. Just keep thinking in 2 days our lives may change forever.
Avatar n tn By the way, I'm 31 years old, have two children, aged four and fourteen months, and the onset of my breast pain more or less coincided with stopping breastfeeding my youngest (don't know if that could be significant). There is no directly relevant history of breast cancer in my family, but I believe my maternal grandmother did have it in her 60s.
Avatar n tn I am 32 years old. My youngest child is now 7. My family is the worst case of cancer . I have white bumps on both of my nipples and i found a lump on the left brest, and they are very sensitive. I also have flaking skin on both nipples. And i have noticed thickning on my left brest. I had a mammo and they said that they didnt see anything but thay couldnt say that they didnt. And this was in bold and highlited in the letter they sent me.
Avatar n tn I squeezed again and a watery discharge with a little blood came out. Could this mean breast cancer or could it just be a simple case of i had a spot in my nipple? My youngest child is 15months ive never breastfed, but could it maybe even be a blocked milk duct? The stuff was not runny, it came out in a lump. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated-especially as i am a terrible worrier and panick at the slightest thing! Thanks in advance. Michelle.
Avatar n tn But do tell someone you trust to get it checked out just in case (not saying breast cancer, but maybe something less minor like a cyst or just growing). But I'm with ya girl! I can't wait till this whole "being young" thing's over!
Avatar f tn My moms sister had ovarian cancer when she was in her 20s. My mothers mother died when my mom was 8 years old of cancer so I have a lot of history of it on my mothers side. I am not sure about my fathers side though because I never met him.

Avatar n tn Two sisters with breast cancer, one three years ago and other one year both stage 3 when found. I’ve seen a second surgeon who agreed with 1st and had my 4 month mam at a clinic using digital mam. Should I be concerned. My youngest sister’ DutalCell was found as a result of a routine check with digital called back and was pretty much told 2 days later that what the radiologist was looking at was C. Had biop. Class 3b Chemo. And Rad. She is very concerned for me.
Avatar f tn If the skin looks dimpled - kind of like an orange peel - you need to see a doctor quickly. There is a form of breast cancer that grows in sheets rather than lumpy tumors and it's often misdiagnosed as mastitis. I don't say this to scare the liver out of you, but to impress on you how important it can be to waste no time seeing your doctor.
Avatar f tn (usually the doctor will have a pretty good idea what sort of biopsy is warranted, and they may guide where they are going with the ultrasound) Also, and I know it sounds scary, any type of biopsy does, but the breast is really relatively painless an organ to do stuff on unlike for example your nose, or from what I heard also something like a liver biopsy. Even having your breast removed when you do have cancer is not nearly as painful as something like a c-section.
