Patient discussion about TISS

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?

A. you 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?"

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..

A. daron,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

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.

A. well, 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.
