CONCLUSION: DBT may be appropriate for the evaluation of focal pain. Low breast cancer incidence was observed at the site of focal pain across all mammographic breast densities and breast cancer risks.PMID:34798561 | DOI:10.1016/j.clinimag.2021.11.003

ConclusionsThis patient ’s case highlights the importance of integrated communication among front-line primary care and other health care professionals to reduce the risk of invasive procedures and avoid institutional costs. GM is a rare disease. We raised the manifold red flags in which the multiple professional chains recruited to care for this patient were concerning for advanced breast cancer. The lack of experience and evidence-based medicine contributed to the contradictory interpretation of the findings on GM's diagnosis.

Authors: Kulkarni D Abstract The breast tissue undergoes significant physiological change during pregnancy and lactation. These changes can give rise to some unique disorders during pregnancy , puerperium and lactation or exaggerate pre-existing conditions. Clinical examination becomes less reliable due to textural change and density of breast tissue as a result of hormonal changes. The main symptoms during pregnancy and lactation are breast pain, mastitis, lactational abscess, breast lump, and blood- stained nipple discharge.Lactational mastitis/ abscess must be treated without delay. Open incision and drainage of...

Dr. Laura Mulvey, 33, practices emergency medicine at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. After spending six days receiving treatment in her own hospital, she is now recovering at home from what is presumed to be COVID-19, though her test was inconclusive. What follows is a lightly-edited transcript of her story as told to TIME. Early on, sometime in February, [COVID-19] was something that people were thinking about. And worried about. Certainly, the worries were not what they are now. But hospital-wise, we had a bit of an earlier jump on it, because we recognized that this was a potential threat. We’re ...

Abstract Palpable breast masses, mastalgia, and nipple discharge are commonly encountered symptoms in outpatient practice, causing significant patient anxiety and precipitating medical consultation. The initial workup includes a detailed clinical history and physical examination. Women presenting with a breast mass will require imaging and further assessment to exclude cancer. Diagnostic mammography is usually preferred, but ultrasonography is more sensitive in women younger than 30 years. Any suspicious mass detected on physical examination, mammography, or ultrasonography should undergo biopsy. In most cases, a ...

ConclusionDue to the low performance of women in using screening methods such as mammography and breast self-examination, it seems necessary to design programs in order to educate women about methods of breast cancer screening. Also, it appears essential to establish changes in lifestyle such as changing diet and pay more attention to physical activity that can reduce the risk of breast cancer.
