quote:Originally posted by moonfireOkay, weird subject line....but I have a question. Men are welcome to answer too....but do any of you women ever experience sharp pain in any of your breasts? I have an issue with one lately....but do not want mamo procedure as I don't want radiation put in my body....or if there is a new procedure, let me know??? I haven't heard of such, but will use an alternative method to see inside the tissue if possible..."Just Me, Lo" Loretta

quote:Originally posted by GBSBI don’t thing that it is anything serious. Many people (man and women) on some point in life experience sudden sharp pain in the breast, lasting a few second. It can happen a few times a day or a few times a week. Causes are stress and physical exhaustion. Presence of this type of pain is usually mistaken for heart attack by male and by female for sign of breast cancer. In reality, it is nothing serious.
quote:Originally posted by Karen W.Loretta when I gained weight my breasts became much heavier and this also was a cause for the type of pain you are describing. I was very worried and had the mamagram..It was worth the risk and not painful like I thought! After loosing this huge amount of weight, my breasts have felt much better and have alot less pain then they did before.. I have always been large buted, DD cup my whole life, so even when I loose the weight I am very top heavy so have known that for along time.. but excess weight can really cause breast pain!! Not constant but intermittant like you described.. Go get checked anyway friend .. You are worth it! We don't want to loose you!Karen

Indirect is different..if it is not, please expound a bit on it...?

quote:Originally posted by moonfirequote:Originally posted by another_someoneThe other two imaging technologies that might be able to detect tumours, but I do not know how well or how available they are, is MRI, and infra-red imaging (which can possibly detect changes in the vascular system if the tumour is fairly close to the surface)I know about MRI, but mostly used here for bones and organs..hmmm, maybe breasts...? I will check with my doctor and my friend who is nearly unreachable most of the time...aagghh

quote:How does Thermography work?All objects with a temperature above absolute zero emit infrared radiation from their surface. Measurements of infrared radiation emitted by the skin can be converted directly into accurate temperature values and a law of physics called the Stefan-Boltzmann Law defines this relationship. Human skin emits infrared radiation mainly in the 2 - 20 micron wavelength range, with an average peak at 9-10 microns. State-of-the-art infrared radiation detection systems utilise ultra-sensitive infrared cameras and sophisticated computers to detect, analyze, and produce high-resolution diagnostic images of these infrared emissions. The problems encountered with first-generation infrared camera systems (such as improper detector sensitivity, thermal drift, calibration, analogue interface, etc) have been solved for almost two decades. The strict environmental control that is essential whilst performing a thermal image, eg. 1 degree C of change during the examination, is necessary to produce a physiologically neutral image free from artefact. Breast thermography, therefore, is a clinical diagnostic procedure, which uses highly specialised infrared cameras to measure the heat coming from the body, in this case, the breast. Thermography as a test of physiology is not capable of, and will never be, capable of detecting breast cancer. Anatomical testing, such as mammography, can also not detect breast cancer. Both procedures demonstrate abnormalities indicating the possibility of the presence of cancer, as well as a host of other breast conditions. These clinical findings require differential diagnosis. Only laboratory confirmation of abnormal cell morphology can make the correct diagnosis of cancer.Thermography of the human breast is not a stand-alone tool as some have suggested in the screening and diagnosis of breast cancer; it is adjunctive. We cannot ignore thermography's tremendous role as an early risk indicator or as a monitor for treatment. In this way changes in tumour angiogenesis can be evaluated and other procedures can be performed to aid in the earliest possible diagnosis. The procedure is non-ionising and safe and there is no reason to simply "wait and see" any longer.

quote:Originally posted by Karen W.I am with Neil on this one.. You need to go to the Doctor just Like I did... If I hadn.t listened to my friend I would be dead,..Loretta go to the doctor right away! make sure you are safe and sound now not January!!I am at my desk as we speak with my feet up again as my ankles are out of control again and I am done with the antbiotcs and need to go back to doctor too.. So you go I will go and we will be better safe then sorry! DEAL!! If you don't go I won't go see who lasts longer!!Karen

Seriously !!..PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZE get the hell down there !!This is not to engender panic...I am sure it is nothing serious too..BUT please get a second opinion !!!

quote:..So when you give fish oil you are giving omega-3 fatty acids mainly.Omega-3 may have amazing effects on the human brain and they are currently being tested in patients with bipolar disorder (a type of psychotic depression): there are positive and negative reports, as usual. They just started few years ago...it is a promising field.There is an interesting book about this by Andrew L. Stoll:http://www.amazon.com/Omega-3-Connection-Groundbreaking-Anti-depression-Program/dp/0684871386In proper doses you may be sure to give good nutrients (they come from the sea plankton!) and no toxicity. Even if they don't work, your kid will be safe and well nourished.I don't know ADHD enough to reccomend anything, but speaking of nutritional supplement and reminding the paper cited at the beginning of this topic, I would suggest to alternate fish oil with CLO.Vitamin D has also positive effects on the brain.Check carefully expiring date and storage reccomended conditions: these oils may go rancid quick.
