Customer:

unfortunitley no, but i have it for almost 13 years

A collection of fat cells like lipoma is also possible.

Customer:

Dr. Saha :

As they are smaller so they are not such visible. However, you should get those checked by doctor.

Customer:

ok ... in general, what are the health symptoms if its cancer?

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

Due to site problem, the last part of my answer did not go through.

In case of cancer the tumor would continue to grow bigger.

There can be breakdown of skin, ulcer formation, bleeding.

If you have any further query, please feel free to ask.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

thanks god, i don't have those symptoms, plus based on my web search a bit pain is good sign.

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.
You are always welcome.

Pain can be due to an inflammation.

A cyst can get inflamed.

This can occur if you handle it too much.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

hi,


i went to doctor today, he said it should be ok, but asked me to do ultrasound in radiology clinic. I'm a big concerned right now ... If its serious, shouldn't it have some symptoms?

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.
You need not to be worried.

The doctor examined it & found it to be ok.

Still you should take the ultrasound to know its nature for certain.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Hi Dr. Sasha,


I did ultrasound today and results will be sent to my doctor by Monday.


What is ultrasound? and what can it determine?


 


btw, I use Pharascar as a part my hair loss control, can it have effect on forming that lump?

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.
Please write the composition of Pharascar.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

sorry its


pharmacor


finasteride 5

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.

Ultrasound uses sound waves to create images.

 

It helps to see the condition of various tissues & organs.

 

Finasteride can cause breast lump, pain.

 

You may need to discontinue it.

 

If you are satisfied with my answers, please leave an excellent rating so that I can be compensated for my time & effort.

off course , I appreciate your help and will notify you about the outcome.

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.
Thank you.

Let me know the Ultrasonography result.

Best wishes.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Hi,


Radiology result was:


 


Findings:


There were a number of lymph nodes in the left axilla. The largest measured 1.65 cm in diameter. Examination of the breast parenchyma showed no discrete masses. The parenchyma of the breast was normal.


 


Conclusion:


There were a number of lymph nodes in the axilla. The breast tissue was normal probably due to gynaecomastia.


 


The doctor said pharmacor, finasteride 5 affected breast tissue and lymph nodes. He asked me to stop it ASAP as well. He asked me to come back in a month for another check.


I appreciate your idea on radiology as well.


 


regards


David

Thank you for the follow up.

This is good news that there is no tumor.

Fortunately, you mentioned that you are taking Finasteride.

That helped to pin point the cause.

Best wishes.
