Discussion Common reasons for seeing a breast surgeon would include management of benign or malignant masses with or without breast reconstruction, breast augmentation, and other reasons can be infection or trauma that need surgical treatment.

Prepared for the unexpected: How Henri beat C. diff
Henri and his sister, Lucienne From the time he was born, Henri has been very reactive — to everything. As a baby, he was allergic to milk and soy, which led to weeping eczema all over his body. His allergies meant frequent ear infections and sinus infections. As a toddler, he was anemic and underweight. He had two urinary tract infections (UTIs) with fevers. At age 3, he had a circumcision because of the repeated UTIs. At age 4, a sinus infection spread to his eye orbit. Every sunscreen on the market gave him (and still gives him) a rash. At age 5, a bug bite on his ear led to a cartilage infection that required ant...
