Nipple Pain And Discharge

BHMS
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Nipple Pain And Discharge

Discharge from nipple (galactorrhoea)

Secretion of milk-like discharge from one or both breasts unrelated to childbirth is called galactorrhea. Nipple discharge is most often due to a benign process. This common breast problem has been reported in 10 to 15 percent of women with benign breast disease and in 2.5 to 3 percent of women with breast cancer. There are generally two different types of nipple discharge

Non-spontaneous

Occurs when the breast is manually squeezed, can happen to any woman and is usually not concerning.

Spontaneous discharge

Which spots on the clothing, should be evaluated by a physician and may warrant further testing.

Evaluation

Physiologic discharges

Characterized by discharge only with compression and by multiple duct involvement. These discharges are frequently bilateral. With either type, the discharge fluid may be clear, yellow, white or dark green.

Pathologic discharges

Spontaneous, bloody or associated with a mass. These discharges are usually unilateral.

Causes

- excessive production of milk-stimulating hormone prolactin by pituitary problems, malfunction of hypothalamus.

- menstrual problem such as amenorrhea problems with cervical part of spine.

- drugs such as oral contraceptives, tranquillizers, and diuretics.

- injury, burns, or surgery,

- neurological problems such as shingles,

- breast cancer

- athletes may experience small amounts of galactorrhea from constant rubbing of the nipples against clothing. Frequent sexual stimulation of the breasts may have similar effects.

Probable diagnosis

- milky discharge: may be due to physiological (lactation); oral contraceptives; galactorrhea

- bloody discharge: may be due to intraductal papiloma; intraductal cancer; malignancy; duct ectasia; fibrocystic disease.

- purulent discharge: may be due to infection

- serous or sticky discharge: fibrocystic disease

- discharge from the surface of breast is seen in paget’s disease;

- skin diseases such as eczema and psoriasis; rare causes such as chancre may also cause discharge.

Self care

- stimulation of the nipple (i. E, squeezing to check for discharge) actually promotes discharge; patients with a physiologic discharge should avoid checking for discharge. A physiologic discharge often resolves when the nipple is left alone.

- all patients with spontaneous or unilateral nipple discharge needs surgical evaluation. This is true for patients with bloody discharges and for those with clear or serous discharges.

Homeopathic symptoms and cure

Homeopathic remedies are prescribed on the basis of symptoms rather than conditions, as each case of a particular illness can manifest differently in different people. There are many symptoms which can be effectively treated by homeopathy few symptoms are given below.

. Nipples sore and fissured, intense suffering on putting child to breast, pain starts from nipple and radiates all over body. Breast feels like a brick, lumpy and nodular.
. Premenstrual breast congestion in women with abundant periods, weight gain and nervousness before the period.
. Cyst in the breast, hard and painful but, itchy, with stitching pains in the nipple. Discomfort worse just before and after the period; woman wants to press breasts hard with hand.
. Bluish-red lumps in the breast, with gradual loss of fatty tissue, and tendency to feel hot all the time.
. Intensely sensitive nipples, sticking pains, like a splinter, cracks, nipples discolored.
. Nipples inflamed and very tender, can hardly bear the pain of nursing, intolerant of pain: “cannot bear it!” very irritable.
. Sore nipples with dry hard deep cracks on it. Dry itching and crusty.
. Cheesy and offensive discharge from nipple.
. Deep sore cracks across crown of nipple.

For proper diagnose consult a homeopath. Start treatment to get rid of these problems.

Having a cyst in the ovary if it is simple cyst is normal and not serious. It is called corpus luteal cyst. After releasing the egg the follicle in the ovary forms a cystic structure which is called corpus luteum and in pregnancy it will persist to give hormonal support to the baby till placenta is functional say till 12 weeks. Sometimes it is little bigger than expected and show as a cyst in scan. It will shrink in due course. You can follow it in next scan. Rarely it can go for twisting or give rise to pain due to hemorrhagic inside the cyst. At present nothing to worry.

6 Ways How Alcohol Abuse Can Ruin Your Relationship

6 Ways How Alcohol Abuse Can Ruin Your Relationship

You may think that it is just a harmless drink or two at the end of the day to help you relax. it's just a few drinks when you get together with friends. or it's just that you need to get rid of the office stress. We all need to catch a break sometimes, which makes our favorite brand of drink our best friend. Trouble starts when 'a drink or two' moves to a level where you can't hold the drink anymore. It affects your ability to think straight and take decisions that you may regret in retrospect. Alcoholism not only has serious health consequences but also can ruin your life and relationships. Don't tread down the path of self destruction, or this is what you'll find:

  1. Conflict: It is not a coincidence that fights are common when one or both partners are caught up with alcohol abuse. It is said that if there is too much alcohol in your system, it hampers with your ability to make rational decisions. It allows you to become inconsiderate about others, and give more importance your addiction over their requirements. It, to an extent, numbs you to what others feel, and makes you drink even more.
  2. Financial loss: Alcohol costs money. And the more you spend to keep up with your addiction, the more money flows out of your monthly household expenses, monthly savings and retirement plans. And this money literally goes down the drain. Like any other addiction, once you start alcohol abuse, you need it everyday. Drinking may go on to impact your ability to hold on to your job as no one will eventually want to hire someone who has alcohol on their breath at 9 am during client meetings. Alcohol is a strict restriction in certain professions where you may put other people at risk. At the very best, you'll be left with a warning. At the worst, you'll lose your job and end up with no work and no money to support your addiction.
  3. Accident prone: In 2014, 9,967 people died in drunk driving crashes - one every 53 minutes. This may sound only like a statistic to you - until you speak to the families who lost their loved ones or have to see them suffer through loss of limbs or brain function to bear lifelong suffering. And as far as you are concerned, you may end up seeing the wrong end of a prison. Such things have a profound impact on your relationship - many of which fail to last through the ordeal.
  4. Infidelity: You've seen it a thousand times in movies - which actually might get reflected in reality, if you wake up next to someone whose name you don't know.
  5. Infertility: Alcohols and babies don't mix. Too much alcohol intake can stop women from making and keeping a baby.
  6. Divorce: An alcoholic husband or wife is a valid ground of mental trauma applicable in a divorce.

Hi lybrate-user thanks for asking. The blebs or blood clots which you are observing and which are ultimately turning into ulcers in the oral region could be a superficial symptom of underlying nutritional deficiency or sometimes any defect in blood or it can also be due to varied reasons. It is better to get a blood test done and then get a thorough examination by a dermatologist and General physician then we can come to a proper conclusion regarding the condition. Wishing her a speedy recovery. Thank you.

Dear lybrate user, get blood sugar studies done, if not done earlier. Diabetes is one of the important causes for this. Local examination by gynaecologist and ultrasound of lower abdomen are likely to give additional information in this regard.

Yes, it is possible but success depends on tubal condition and Surgery. No one can say no risk as one surgery for reversal and one more Caesarean both have risks. Maximum you can reduce risk of reversal surgery by opting for IVF (test tube baby- Costly and and if does not succeed in first trial you pay again)
