Hi, I'm Doctor Robert, a Medical Internist (MD) who deals with diseases of all organ systems. All my education has been completed in the US.
The views expressed here are for educational purposes only and do not establish a physician-patient relationship. It is NOT intended to replace your own physician's advice or diagnosis. If this is an emergency, stop now and please call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest Emergency Room.
Because I can NOT see, touch, speak with or examine you, nor do I have access to your complete medical history, labs, scans or medications, I will NOT be able to give you an exact diagnosis. If that's what you are expecting from me here, STOP READING NOW. Otherwise you may possibly give me a negative I BAD/POOR SERVICE rating, which is not helpful. There are limits to what can be done across the internet. PLEASE keep this in mind as you read my responses.
Are you there? If so, NOW is the time to chime in so we can chat.
If you have cystic breast, these should show on mammorgram, and one should have been biopsied in all likelihood.
Yes, you an see your gynecologist as there are some issues that can be addressed and action taken to posssibly prevent them from recurring so often.
If you have an nipple discharge, or puckering of the skin, this DEFINITELY needs to be seen.
So, the answer to your brief question is: YES.
Wel, I will take your advise. only one of your responses fit my situation. also am experiencing severe. excruiating back pain, which I have been under the care of pain management for 14 years. This seems to out weigh my need to rum to a gynecologist, since have no means of transportation. I would be happy to rate you 5 stars for being sokind and thorough.
