Q. I could feel hard tissues in my breasts.I suspect it the other way, any idea what it may be?

I could feel hard tissues in my breasts. While reading article about breast cancer, I happened to note that these may be simple cyst and there is nothing to worry. My friend too had cyst and treated by the doctor with needle by removing the fluid out. But I suspect it the other way, any idea what it may be?
A1you cannot just guess it, I do encourage you to go see your doctor (oncologist is recommended), to have your breast checked.
first, your doctor will have a physical examination on you, and then it might help to find the correct diagnose by using some imaging procedures (ultrasound, mammography), or even by doing a fine needle aspiration on the lump. then it will be checked under microscopes to get the specific "what is that lump?"
A2A suspected cyst is taken as a lump by many. Doctor uses a very thin needle and a syringe to draw the fluid out. If it’s a cyst the removal of fluid will reduce the cyst. If it comes again same steps are followed. But for any cyst or lump you must consult a doctor and don’t try to find any solution or treatment yourself. If it’s a hardened cyst you may have to go for further test upon doctor’s suggestion. I think it’s better if you meet doctor without any further delay. It’s always good to start a treatment before and get well early.

Q. I want to get cure for asthma and develop my cardiac tissue. What is the best exercise for me to do?

This is Daron, 20/m. I have had asthma since I was 3 yrs old, and suffer from exercise induced asthma as well as weather and food. Running is the worst thing that induces asthma in me. I want to get cure for asthma and develop my cardiac tissue to ensure fitness. What is the best exercise for me to do? I will be very thankful if I get suitable suggestion or advice..
A1daron,their is no cure for asthma--asthma is controlled by meds--if you dont have one get a pulmonary DR.--you can try riding a bike,and walking,i was born with asthma and i have the same problem as you,--you can try walking or biking for a little amount of time each day,--you can also try taking your meds before doing any exercize,THere are meds on the market,that can help you to do the things that you like.--mrfoot56---peace
A2Hi Daron, doing mild exercise and swimming may help you because it is gentle and help to develop your cardiac tissue. You know that the best way is yoga; don’t over do it sometimes the stress may make you fall on a track. Please be careful. And eat quality protein and fruit juice. You can still be fit and healthy.

Q. I developed an AV Fistula after a heart catherization procedure. I am bleeding through the tissues in left arm

I am on coumadin, but currently have a lower than usual INR. Corrective surgery was scheduled for yesterday, but had to be delayed. I am concerned that I have a large amount of blood (dark red) bleeding though the tissues right under the skin in my left arm. Should I seek immediate medical attention? The bleeding is over approximately a 3 and 1/2" area on my left arm. Came about in a period of a few minutes.
Awell, you are on blood thinners. i wouldn't take the chance. i mean- i'm not sure i follow what is happening over there. it could be a severe problem or nothing. i would let a doctor check it out. the worse thing that could happen is you wasting a day at the hospital, on the other end of that scenario- you can end up dead. i would go with the first one.

Q. My neighbor's kid had a lens dislocation due to Marfan's disease. Is this a contagious thing?

My neighbor's have a sweet 8 year old boy. he had a lens dislocation due to a connective tissue disease named Marfan (I think that the name). It sounds like a very serious condition. My boy is playing with this kid several hour a week. should I take him to the GP to see that his is not infected with this marfan thing?
A1As in love and war so is in medicine the is no always nor never. It is probably the marfan that caused your neighbor kid the lens dislocation but you can never know for sure.
If you want there is nothing wrong in taking your boy for an annual check of an ophthalmologist.
A2Don't worry. Marfan's syndrome is a connective tissue disease that is genetic. This means that You can't "get" this disease. Either you are borne with it or you will never suffer from it.
lens dislocation is a known symptom of marfan's syndrome, and is not connected to infectious diseases.
