cluelessgal80- Hi! benign mass when proven by histopath will never be malignant. But there are premalignant lesions which need monitoring.

No adequate scientific proof to correlate sog and dairy products with breast cancer.

hi po doc she..ask lang po ako  year 2009 po nag pa ultrasound ako since may nakakapa akong lump sa breast ko..i was breastfeeding my 5months old baby that [textspeak!]..may nakita nga pong 3 masses sa breast ko.1 sa right and 2 sa left.when i went to see a surgeon para pabasa yung result..sabi nya po, nothing to worry kasi benign naman..milk lang po daw na tumigas..balik lang daw po ako after weaning my baby..di na po ako nakabalik doc..until now nakakapa ko pa rin yung lump..

planning to take saw palmetto and fenugreek po sana for breast enhancements..nabasa ko kasi ok daw un..

makaka affect ba yun sa masses na nakita sa akin doc even if herbal ang saw palmetto and fenugreek?

ijael- I suggest you have another breast ultrasound to monitor the breast masses seen before and consult the surgeon.

hi doc,
ask ko lang p0, needed po b na 7-10 days after 1st day ng mens magpa-check ng breast? last 2009 nagpa-examine me, then yung ob advise nia na magpa-ultra sound me ng breast, may nakakapa kc me na bukol, then dun sa ultra sound wala naman nakita. then ngaun po, kumikirot yung dibdib ko, pero wala naman akong nakakapa na bukol. napaparanoid ata ko,...

AVOIDING something doesnt always mean that you HATE it, it could also mean that you WANT it but you just know that it is NOT right.

mchummy- the best time to do your breast ultrasound or breast examination is 7-10 days from 1st day of menses. Consult your Surgeonfor peace of mind!

Hi san ba ok magpa sonomammogram? Ang mahal kasi sa MMC. 2700!

^DocShe ok lang ba na lumagpas sa 10 days? Kasi sa Saturday pa ako makakapagpa-ultrasound if ever. That's 16 days after my first day.  ;D

Try Women's Health Troubleshooter 2011.

Women's Health Troubleshooter allows estimating the probability of disorders in female patients, based on a set of answers to Yes/No questions.

This is very useful in cases where there is no opportunity to use medical equipment/tests to diagnose a disorder. Students also may use it to develop diagnostic skills.

A user should click on the "Yes"/"No" button if the answer to the question is positive/negative. At the end of this process, the possible disorders will be displayed, together with the probabilities (in percentages) of these disorders.

Download it here :

joining....

since highschool days naffeel ko na yung cyst sa right breast ko, then when i turned 20 nung 2008, i decided na ipacheck-up kasi parang dikit-dikit sila. that was the first and last time na nag pa-check up ako. the doctor said na multiple cyst daw.

and the result of my ultrasound was:
Breast sonography: presence of 2 fluid filled nodules measuring 1.7x0.6cm and 2.3x0.7cm at 8 o'clock zone A and zone B of the right breast respectively. Left breast is unremarkable.

Impression: Breast nodules, cystic, multiple, right.

DocShe what can you say about the findings? di naman sumasakit nor lumalaki yung lumps. TIA.  :D

yamo- by ultrasound looks like benign cyst but still a Physical exam by a Surgeon is advisable then correlation with the result.

Hi DocShe!  How are you?  I had an excision biopsy with you last year (Feb 2010).  Do you recommend a yearly checkup?  Are you Maxicare-accredited po ba?

greenaholic- How old are you? Usually if patient is less than 40 years old then we do Breast Ultrasound.
