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 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 8 week old baby is on Zantac which seems to help a little

My 8 week old baby is on Zantac which seems to help a little bit. About every other night, she's screaming and writhing around. The doctor wants to give the Zantac another week before we try something else. In the meantime, can I also give her Colic Calm (http://www.coliccalm.com) when she's really having a bad time? This seems to calm her. However, I am not sure if having both in her system is safe. Thanks!

I have been noticing my 7 week old breathing funny after

I have been noticing my 7 week old breathing funny after eating. It matches the description of retractions but maybe not as intense..je remains a good colour and it goes away after 10 mons or so and he is either happy and smiling or peacefully asleep. I noticed it seems to happen when after he eats and when he needs to poop..always stops after he poops. I am not sure if he is just really full because it's always after he eats. Online it says go to emerge however it would be over by the time we got there and he seems pretty much fine aside from breathing wierd. Do you think this needs immediate medical attention?
