Customer Question

I'm reading about this experience because I had a chest xray and they want to redo it b/c of what they think is a nipple shadow
They said it appeared in a bit of a weird position (I think as I wasn't dealing with a person whose first language is English)

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

I understand your concern.

Do you have any symptoms?

The shadow of the nipple can be vary depending on the way the xray beams were focused on your chest.

I do not think it is concerning as there is no other abnormalities in the xrays.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
