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?
