My friend tells me that its nothingg that im just developing more breast. But i have no idea. What do you guys think? Pleasee Pleasee help mee!

Top answer:

Answer by Crystle
it is possibly that you can get it at 14, and its good that you’ve started to check yourself now, especially with family history

if you have found a lump, you should get it checked at the doctor (grown up, like your moms doctor, not pediatrician)

will i get breast cancer too?

A question from : will i get breast cancer too?

my paternal grandmother and her mother before her both had breast cancer in their 60s/70s. they both survived it – apparently it was less aggressive? my grandmother had one breast removed and is now completely fine
anyway, i was wondering if the genes could be passed down through men, and if i was likely to inherit it from my parents
what im asking is:
1) can the genes from this type of breast cancer be passed down through men
2) how can i find out if i have it

oh and im 15 by the way

***please only answer this if you have medical experience or knowledge on this matter***

Smoking and breast cancer funding?

Question posed by hikl: Smoking and breast cancer funding?
I need to know the legal/ethical/funding and economic impact of smoking and breast cancer. Also i need another question to ask in my thesis
1.Is there a correlation between breast cancer and smoking tobacco?
2.What kinds of smokers are more susceptible to breast cancer?
3.Does smoking other illicit substances cause breast cancer?
I have those but do you have a better suggestion for number 3.
Can you tell me about future studies and future research on this.
Please please please can you help me.

The top answer:

Answer by Peter M
2 is dependent upon the answer to #1 and you don’t say that.
#3 refers to “other” illicit substances but you haven’t named any illicit substances. Your questions reflect a “tunnel” vision focusing more on an anti-smoking stance than on cancer research.

A question from Audrey H: Tumor Found in Supraclavicular Node 8 months after breast cancer treatment, could this be metastasis? ?
Diagnosed March 2007 with Stage 1 breast cancer, right breast. Axillary node removed, negative for cancer. Went through chemo and radiation, finished in February 2008. Went to follow-up October 13, first time for follow-up needed a break from doctors for a while. Complained of pain which I have had for the last 2-3 months from top of right breast to over shoulder and down the back. Sono showed tumor in supraclavicular node, right side. I have a CT scan on Thursday the 30th.
What does a CT scan show? Being that I just finished cancer treatment seems metastasis is the likely answer?

Most detailed answer:

Answer by Panda
Hopefully it will turn out to be benign or something different, but yes metastasis is always a worry once you’ve been diagnosed with cancer.
Cancer can be very deceptive. A CT will give a better image of the tumor or spot and also may give indication if there are any more tumors to be seen. Be persistent about this . . you need to know exactly what you are dealing with. Also if this turns out to be nothing it is always a good idea to have CT or even a PET scan to use as a ‘baseline’ . . the doctor needs to have the scans to compare every three to six months to make sure the cancer is gone or to measure tumor shrinkage or track relapse.

Good luck and stay strong.
