  • Small white lump on anus, what is it?

    Over the past 6 months or so I noticed a small white lump on the anus area, it does not hurt at all though, if it is growing it must be slowly, but it's not shrinking either. Any ideas what it could be?

  • Evening primrose oil for fibrocystic breast pain

    My midwife suggested I start taking evening primrose oil for my non-cyclic fibrocystic breast pain. She prefaced the suggestion with letting me know that there's no real scientific data to support its benefits, but that there's enough anecdotal evidence for her to suggest it may help. Anyone...

  • 18 and Scared

    I've just come back from doctors for a lump in my breast. I'm 18 and she said it was quite normal (and said it was probably something with a long name I can't remember) and because of my age is probably fine and is to do with menstrual cycle, but to come back if anything changes or if it...

    I'm 18 years old, and have a lump in my armpit. It came up in late December and I got it checked out by a doctor who said it would just be an infected or inflamed lymph node, or perhaps a cyst. He said if it didn't go away to come back and he'd give me antibiotics incase it was infected....

  • Worried and need advice

    I'm here as I'm worried about my mother, not myself. About 10 months ago, she went to the doctor because she had a lump in her breast. The doctor examined it but said they didn't think it was anything to be worried about, so didn't send for a monogram. In December, after I had a lump...

  • Left Breast Lump Pain

    I am a 29 y.o male. Yesterday I discovered a painful lump just beside my left nipple. There seems to be a  pea shaped movable lump and it's extremely  painful upon contact.  The pain is now on and off even without touching it.  Could it be breast cancer?

  • Right breast heavy and bigger

    I have fibrocystic breasts - but one breast seems to be more affected.  It's worse with perimenopause. My right breast is definitely bigger, hangs a little lower and feels 'heavy'.  It's hard to check for cysts due to dense tissue.  I had a mammogram and ultrasound in April...

  • Breast Cancer At 95 Years of Age

    I am 95 years old and just diagnosed with cancer in my right breast.  It is in the early stages.  My thoughts on this is that since I am 95 and the cancer is in the early stage, it will take several years before it get to the late stage.  So, why not just leave it alone.  By the time...

  • Right to worry or totally overreacting?

    Hiya, I’m an 18 year old female and I suffer from a lot of health related anxiety, which often makes it difficult to know if I’m worrying for nothing or should really be concerned. For about 2 weeks I’ve had a small rash on both my breasts, one worse than the other but both definitely have the same rash....
