Breasts :: Discharge And Itching With Family History Of Cancer

Apr 8, 2015

I'm 34 years old. Family history of breast cancer.

My first benign breast (right) tumor was surgically removed when I was 15 years old. It was a mass that grew in size with time but, thankfully, benign.

In 2013 I had a lump in my left breast (mammo and ultrasound showed lump w/ it's own blood supply and jagged edges) and when I was having my biopsy done the Dr. saw there was puss. Biopsy returned normal and diagnosis was mastitis even though I wasn't breast feeding. After weeks and weeks of strong antibiotics, the mass was surgically removed.

In 2014 I had another lump in my right breast(mammo and ultrasound showed lump w/ it's own blood supply and jagged edges). During the biopsy my Dr. was able to break the mass apart. No surgery was needed after this one. No antibiotics. And again, biopsy was normal.

Now it's 2015 and about 2 weeks ago I woke up with pain on my right breast. It was very swollen, red around the areola, felt very dense/heavy, and was very warm. A few days later, symptoms are the same but now I had green discharge coming out of the nipple. I didn't squeeze to get the discharge out. I noticed it on my bra. Some days there was more discharge than other days, but always green. I think I might have seen a reddish brown color at one point but wasn't too sure as it was faded into the padding I was putting in my bra. Went to the Dr. and was seen by a nurse practitioner and she felt a lump (though to me, it didn't feel like a lump, more of just a very dense/thick area) and we noticed that my nipple was inverted and it wasn't before. I was finally scheduled for a mammo & ultrasound a week and half after the symptoms first started and by then, the swelling had gone down, the pain wasn't constant - more of a shooting sharp pain throughout my breast and nipple area, but the discharge continued. The nipple is still slightly inverted, specially at the bottom. Mammo and ultrasound came back fine except Dr noticed that there is debris in my milk ducts. Oh and no fever at any time, no feeling sick, and my breast is very itchy... nipple area is flaky... maybe from scratching?? Should I get a 2nd opinion or does this sound like something I should concerned about? I've had so many issues with my breast already I just get really scared that there is something bad going on. I'm sure this is benign but worried at the same time.

Ovarian Cyst Of 4 Cm With High CA 125 (family History Of Cancer)

6 weeks ago I went into hospital and was told I had a cyst on my left ovary , which was about 4cm. I have recently been back to my doctors and had some blood tests done and waiting for a repeat scan. My ca125 has come back high, and I have got to go and see a gynecologist a week monday. I am 44 years old, I was sterilised 2 years ago. I am so worried. I lost both my parents to cancer.

I have pain in my left side all of the time, could this be because of the cyst?

Breast Cancer Family History - Ache In My Left Breast

Hey, so breast cancer runs in my family and so I check myself regularly. Lately tho I keep getting an ache in my left breast and sometimes the right one. I have had children so they have changed a little but when I feel them I keep feeling lumps and can't tell if they are normal or not.. Sometimes it is tender to press.. I have noticed also my nipples go a little crusty almost (I am so sorry for that info :-/).. I know I should see a doc but I suffer anxiety badly to the point I can barely leave the house alone and my husband is about to start a new job so he won't be able to come with me.. I am so scared!! I don't want to tell any friends incase it's nothing but then I'm freaking out about going alone esp with my children .

Pregnancy :: Varicose Veins - Family History

Has anyone gotten them before? I'm preg with #6 and I think I have signs of them. I'm concerned because on my mother's side the women have them severely (to the point my sister almost lost a leg in pregnancy). I'm high risk and on adjusted bed rest so it's not from standing too long and I'm only 12w so it's not from pressure.

Genetic Blood Pressure With Family History - No Other Risk Factors

41 year old female diagnosed with HBP earlier this year. family history of it, but no problems for me until now. non-smoker, weight normal, exercises on 4-6 times/week and eats a low sodium diet.

driving me crazy that I have this condition and wish like hell I could do something to lower it.

was already taking a beta blocker for an abnormal heart beat, had high blood pressure earlier this year. doctor doubled dosage of beta blocker. BP was the same when I returned for a 3 month follow up appt. last week.

she put me on diuretic, started it a few days ago and I hate taking it, the constant peeing is killing me.

anyone have a similar situation? HBP with only a family history and no other risk factors? I don't want to be on the diuretic for the rest of the life. i'm fine with the beta blocker b/c of irregular heart beat, but I don't like being on other meds.

I cried when my BP didn't go down. my doctor said it was a matter of my age and genetics. sometimes this happens.

anyone, anyone? looking for a similar story or someone to tell me things will be ok. I have a fear that my BP will never be normal again and i'm trying NOT to stress about it.

Ovarian Cysts Removal :: Thyroid Cancer History

I am a 50 year old who started having left back pain two months ago.  After pelvic US discover 3.8 cm complex cyst.  Gyro recommended waiting and follow up ultrasound, so two months later repeat ultrasound showed an additional 2.5 cm complex cyst, original was measured at 3.1 cm.  Gyno Dr recommended surgery to remove left ovary and both cysts.  I still have left back pain, some pain when urinating, constipation, so stomach upset.  Part of me wants to continue waiting in pain to see if they resolve, but it's not fun having the not severe but constant ache in my left side.  Have a history of thyroid cancer, but have been cancer free for 4 years.  I am in perimenopause, periods are very irregular.  Went 3 months without a period, had a period, and now it's been two months with no period.  Have a surgical consult with gyn/ob at Kaiser Mr. Talbert in Sunnyside Oregon next Thursday.   I need advice and suggestions on what to ask Dr.   Part of me just wants to do the surgery and get it over with, but the other part thinks what if I wait and they go away?  With my history of cancer (I had a 10% chance that my thyroid tumor would have been cancerous and it was) I'm a little leary of just saying that since there is only a slight chance of complex cyst being cancer I shouldn't worry about that.  Maybe should have the cancer test?

Breasts :: Clear Discharge, Pain Travels Between Breast And Arm Pit

I have been having pain in my right breast for about six weeks now. The pain travels between the arm pit and breast, but is mainly a stabbing pain on the top of my right breast. When i just lightly squeeze my nipple it has clear discharge coming from it and can actually decrease the pain in my breast for a short time. I do get a stabbing pain in my left breast now and again but no discharge. Pain in the right breast can last a few hours at a time,or constantly on

certain days. It does feel a bit lumpy but i don't know the difference between a possible cancer lump or normal one. I hope i can get an answer or possibility of what is happening with me. I am 40years old, i had my only child 22years ago, i also had a mammogram and ultrasound and had one lump just outside of my right breast under my armpit taken a sample of, when i was 38 years old but everything was normal. Hope someone can help me.

Breast :: One Is Smaller Than Other, Discharge, Itching, Lump

I am 16 years old and about 3 or so years ago i noticed what seemed to be a lump on my left breast that is a slightly different color than my skin. I told my mom and we went to the doctor to get it checked out...they did an ultrasound on it and found nothing and said it was most likely a cyst and that a lot of women get these. For the next few years i just let it go...but about a year ago i noticed that my left breast was noticeably smaller than my right breast......I started feeling self-conscious about it and I felt like it kept getting worse over the months....people started noticing and saying stuff about it or making fun of me and its been really hard to deal with....about 3 or 4 months ago the nipple also on my LEFT breast became inverted...this freaked me out so i told my mom and we made another doctor app......when we went this time they did another ultrasound (since Im still too young for a mammogram) and they found nothing that time either....that calmed me down a bit cause i thought for sure I had breast cancer....they said to keep an eye on the lump, invertedness, the size of the breast etc.....

and now RECENTLY like in the past 2 months maybe....I've been having discharge out of...again..the LEFT breast..its only a little bit and its like white or cream colored. I have absolutely NO idea what's going on with my left breast but its extremely embarrassing, scary and just inconvenient...if anyone knows any natural or cheap cures to any of my symptoms or knows what is going on or what it is...

Vaginal Health :: Yeast Infection Or HPV? Discharge And Itching

I female, 29 years old. For the past three years I’ve been only sexually active with my boyfriend, we are living together and are probably going to get married next year. So, it’s a pretty serious relationship. I’ve stopped using birth control about a month ago because the new doctor prescribed me generic which had horrible effects on my mood. For the last week I’ve been experiencing extreme itching in my vaginal area, and it’s accompanied with the white discharge. Over the last three days I’ve noticed 3 small pimples appear and that’s when I started to worry this might be HPV infection. I’ve taken a pregnancy test and it was negative, but we’re a bit low on money now so I can’t get to ob-gyn for at least 3 weeks. Do the symptoms I’m experiencing sound more like I have yeast infection or HPV?

Atrophic Vaginitis? Mild Discharge, Burning And Itching

I have been having lower abdominal discomfort, burning and mild itching for the past three years.  It seems like I have got a urine infection but tests came clear.  I also seem to have slight vaginal discharge.  My GP referred me to a gynae and he could not find anything wrong, vaginal swab and urine test came normal.  I asked about AV and he did a blood test for oestrogen and this cave normal and he said I have not got AV.  Everything seems quite healthy down there except I keep suffering from this burning sensation and discomfort.  I keep going to my GP and she said I have got AV and prescribed me Ovestin cream which I used last year & did not help, I was having hot flushes and sore breasts.  Today I went to see her again as this burning sensation was driving me crazy.  She prescribed the cream again, I do not know whether it will help or should I give it another go.

I was also surprised that I had blood in my urine and suffered two urine infections without me knowing.  Although I suffer from burning sensation, it does not burn when I pass urine and I have got a good flow.  She also treated me for thrush with no effect.  In the end she took a swab and it came negative although the nurse said she could see thick white discharge up.  I have come to the conclusion the slight discharge I suffer does not mean I have thrush.  Looking at the symptoms of AV, it does seem I have got it.  Now who do I believe the consultant or my GP.  The consultant did quite a few tests like ultra sound and probing my vagina with something I cannt remember what it was last year.  Strange when I was on holiday for three weeks, no symptoms, it only bothers me when I am idle and watching TV.  I am also concerned I might suffer with urine infection without me knowing due to this burning sensation.  Aftet two lots of antibiotics for urine infections and cream for thrush, I am still the same.
