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?

I have an infant son that will be 11 months next week. A few

I have an infant son that will be 11 months next week. A few months ago I noticed a small bump under his skin under his chin. It feels like a pimple that won't come to a head. It is smaller than a pea.I thought it was a pimple and just figured it would go away on its own. My cousin was just diagnosed with round cell sarccoma so now I am nervous that I have not done anything about this.It does not seem to bother him nor has it gotten bigger. It it not that red but you can feel it under his skin.Should I take him to urgent care or can this wait until Monday so I can make an appointment with his Pediatrician?Thank you

My grandson is 17 months old. About 8 days ago he broke out

My grandson is 17 months old. About 8 days ago he broke out in large hives and the doctor said it was because it body was fighting off a virus. During this time he developed light red dots on the skin and the doctor said no need to worry. Told us to give him bendryl. We did and all is good now for about a week, but a couple days after seeing the doctor we noticed that his testicles were red. They are still red and it's been about 6 days now. When he changes his diaper, he tries to pull them like he's uncomfortable. They are not swollen and if we press on them gently it doesn't seem to bother him. We are going to change his diapers back to the ones we were using about a week ago because we recently changed them. And tomorrow we are going to let him run around without a diaper to see that helps. We are wondering if we should take him to the doctor but don't want to be over re-active.

My son is 4 years old (13 KG) and he has Zellweger's

Hi,My son is 4 years old (13 KG) and he has Zellweger's disease. He has gone through a new experimental therapy where I donated half my liver to him and it showed that the toxic metabolites have normalized and therefore he should no longer deteriorate. Since the operation (2 years ago) he has been getting stronger where he was deteriorating before that.My son has been having a lot of trouble sleeping, he cries a lot at sleeping time, rolls arround a lot and ends up getting very nervous and frustrated that he starts crying, beating his own head and biting his hands cause he couldnt sleep. we thought its because he is in pain but it doesnt seem to be the case as if i cary him in a certain comfy position he stops and I would have to rock him for 45 minutes to an hour until he sleeps. If I stop he would cry again.This is causing him sleep deprevation and us as well.... he keeps waking up and we cannot sleep. His brother who also has Zellweger's disease (but who has not done the operation and is now in a very critical situation) takes Rivotril to help him sleep.I was wondering if we should give him a Xanax or a Rivotril untill he can see a doctor just so he can sleep for at leat once. and if yes what kind of dossage?
