my 7 year old daughter has a firm mass behind her nipple.

my 7 year old daughter has a firm mass behind her nipple. nipple appears inverted (i think) but i dont think the inversion is a change...seems like it has been that way. she says it is sore - though that just may be from me checking it today and having other family members do the same. it appears to be about the size of a quarter and directly behind the nipple. wondering what i should do? just found it today and have not noticed it before. visually, there appears to be no change.

my daguther who is 13 experienced what seemed to be the flu

my daguther who is 13 experienced what seemed to be the flu over two weeks ago. a week later her glands were swollen in her kneck, she ran a low to medium fever. I took her to the doctor her tonsil had abscessed. She was put on antibiotics and steriods and it cleared it. That was two weeks ago and now she has a swore throat and very low grade fever and general malaise. We went to the doctor today and strept test came back negative and Dr. said it is a virus. However, she just started complaining of her breast hurting this evening and there is a knot in her areola..........could this be the virus causing it?

My 8 year old son has been taking .5 mgs of Risperdal. He

My 8 year old son has been taking .5 mgs of Risperdal. He has had a stomach virus, with fever, and I haven't given it to him in about 3 days. Now, he seems to be having an anxiety attack. He keeps saying he can't keep thoughts out of his head. Is risperdal like an anti-depressant, and he should be weaned off of it, or can he stop it "cold-turkey"? I just gave him his dose about 30 minutes ago, and he seems to be calming down.

My grandson who is 3 1/2 mos. old has a swollen breast (lump) and is bleeding-spots from the left breast nipple. He went to the Dr. who sent him for an ultrasound which showed everything was fine, to come back in two weeks for a followup. What causes the bloody discharge? Is this anything to be concerned about?

My 1 year old son has had a fever for 2 days now yesterday

My 1 year old son has had a fever for 2 days now yesterday it was as high as 103.4 and today was as high as 103.7. both times I gave him Tylenol and the fever went down right away. When should I take him to see a doctor? He has not shown any other symptoms. Just the fever. He is eating and drinking ok. Also I have been using a tympanic thermometer to take his temperature. If he has a ear infection is it ok that I do that or should I take his temperature another way?

My baby boy is 82 days old (almost 3 months) when he was 38

HelloMy baby boy is 82 days old (almost 3 months) when he was 38 days old he got fever. I went to the hospital the doctor said any infant who has fever without any other symptoms may have meningitis and so lumber puncture was performed it was positive wbc was 570 (clear) monomorph 80% polymorph 20%. though the culture of CSF was negative, no bacteria found. He was put on penicillin and cefotaxime for 2 days but the fever didn't settle down until penicillin was replaced with vancomycin then the fever finally went away. He was on cefotaxime and vancomycin for 14 days.Then CBC &Diff had been tested and neutrophils were low. It read 0.6. The next day before my baby was discharged it read 0.7. The doctor said as long as it kept raising there is nothing to worry about. A week later the same test was done neutrophils were 0.9. Two weeks later (which is today) it read 0.6. it decreased.I haven't noticed any viral infection. He is a happy baby, smiles laughs squeals. He refuses to drink milk sometimes. (formula/ no breastfeeding).The test says he also has low RBC too. (3.34 then 3.56)When he was in the hospital I found a soft lump on his head but MRI says it is just a hematoma.He was born by an emergency C-Section
