Patient discussion about annual

Q. I am having mammograms annually since 10 years (now 43). I am having mammograms annually since 10 years (now 43), I'm not sure how much of the "armpit" area is included. I have recently noticed a lump on my right about half way between my breast and my armpit. It can be tricky to locate at times and I really don't think it's anything serious as it feels smooth and round. I do have very dense breasts. I had a core biopsy done on the same breast, upper & outer quadrant, some years ago that was benign. I am going to have my mammo for this year and I was wondering if this area between the breast and the armpit will be covered?

A. It’s difficult to get that area of the armpit in mammogram and I don't think they can get that close. If there is a lump, it will need to be addressed. Just let doctor know. Maybe they will send you for ultrasound. Good luck for your treatment.

Q. What is the best way to treat fungal infection so it wont come back every year at the same time?? I don't know where I got it from- maybe caught it in a public shower,some people say it develops while the foot is in the shoe for long hours- I'm not sure- but every fall, for like 5 years now, I've been having this fungal infection in a few spots in my feet. usually in the same exact spots and ewvery year another one show up. what to do to make it go away?? it's real ugly and itchy, can't stand it. any help would be appreciated...

A. i also used to have fungal infections (Athlete's foot). i just applied a topical anti fungal cream to treat it and then continued applying it for prevention and started to use sandals in public showers. and thank god, i don't have any now.

Q. During every year winter my mom depression increases,so please tell which ways to cope up? My mom is 47 and every year during winter her depression increases. She craves for sweets and cannot work if she does not bask in the sunshine every day. During these days she eats a lot and sleeps a lot. She is gaining weight. This weight gain increases her depression. She loves cooking but she cannot cook and eats all the junks available in market. She sleeps in day. She cannot get good sleep at night. This again adds on her stress. Please tell any ways to cope up.

A. I think your mom is having Seasonal Affective Disorder. Where the person gets depressed with the change in the season and cannot bear that change. This depression repeats every year at the same time. They can also get depression on the sudden change of weather which depresses them. Let your mother have lots of sunlight. Make her room and kitchen brighten with lights. This will make her feel better.
