    I am reaching my 30’s and my paternal grandmother passed away from breast cancer. I have a maternal aunt who found breast cancer early and beat it. Every OBGYN that I have gone to will not perform a mammogram due to my age. Why?

    Women younger than 40 have breast tissue that is too dense for a mammogram to see through–basically it’s a worthless exam in younger women. Ultrasounds, thermography, physical exam and MRI are the best exams at your age.

    What is that mushroom compound and the Ayruvedic detox treatment?

    The mushroom formula is called AHCC. The detox program is called Panchakarma.

    I’m a black 40 year old female. During a breast self exam I noticed blood from one of my milk duct when I squeezed my nipple and a dark green sticky discharge. I have since had a diagnostic mammogram and everything appeared fine. Breast density is scattered fibroglanfular. My gynecologist said I probably popped a vessel causing the blood, but I still see the same discharge when squeezed. Is there a reason for concern? Dr. advised to ignore if I see it again.

    The most common reason for bloody discharge from the nipple is from a benign papilloma in one of the breast ducts. Green fluid comes from a cyst. I recommend seeing a breast surgeon who would be an expert in this rather than your gynecologist.
