Hi there. Board-certified obgyn here. Have you had a mammogram recently?

Hi - thank you for responding. Yes in April and the findings were that I️ have dense tissue but nothing that was alarming.

Thank you.

Nipple pain and sensitivity (like other breast pain and sensitivity) is pretty common and can come and go. The "red flags" that make us worry are if you have a lump that is rock hard, fixed in place (as opposed to being mobile) or distinctly tender to the touch.

All that being said, because unfortunately breast cancer is so common, we tend to take such symptoms very seriously. You've up to date on your mammogram so you don't need another one until next year, but it may not be a bad idea to call your doc to get an order for an ultrasound of that breast (especially as you have dense breast tissue) to take another look.

Thank you! I️ will do that. Unfortunately my mother’s sisters both passed because of Cancer; one with breast and the other from Ovarian so I’m always concerned about this.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope all turns out well (it usually does, especially if your mammogram was normal.)

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

Hi, I was hospitalised on thursday after waking up after sleeping with a tampon. I immediately after removing it felt dizzy, started vomiting and got a fever (39 degree). I went to the hospital where they found that I had tachycardia (pulse was 130), high infection level etc, and my skin was red like a sunburn. Somewhat low blood pressure (100/60). They gave me antibiotics and fluids, and I felt much better when discharged on saturday. I was called now from the hospital and told that they found Staphylococcus aureus from the vaginal swab.
