Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
In a growing breast of an eleven year old,it is common to have slight pain or hardness. this all happens due to the hormonal changes taking place in the body at that time.There is nothing to worry. Just wait and watch. Gradually all these symptoms will disappear.

I do have an appt to see a doctor and I don t know why I waited all these years to get answers. But my symptom I am worried about is yes I did have a child but my chis is now ten years old. Ever since I had a kid, if I squeeze my nipples or around the area, white and clear liquid comes out. Sometimes a lot comes out. I also worry because sometimes I get chest pains (like sharp pains) and I have a hard time determining if its my actual boob hurting, or muscle pain, or muscles in my rib. Sometimes its just hard to determine where the sharp pain is coming from. Sometimes when I get sharp pains on the left side I worry its my heart, but I also tell myself its probably not my hear because I get sharp pains on the right side too.

About a year ago, I started seeing white spots on my legs...they have multiplied rapidly. The dermatologist diagnosed it as Vitiligo. I am currently applying Pigmento ointment (charak). I was sent Vitiligo 30 sublingual pills from Biogetica, as well as Pigmento Tablets. I am a breast cancer survivor (2), and have had reconstruction. I am 68, and 5 4 tall...weigh 154 lbs. I am really scared to ingest the pills for fear that it will do liver damage. One of the pills contain Arsen Sulph . How harmful is this? Please advise. Thank you. Juliet

My 8 year old daughter is undergoing tests to diagnose asthma. it is well controlled. She has been complaining of chest discomfort. It started very sporadically at first (once per month), but now more regular. It happens when she`s just doing quiet things. She points to either her left or right side, it varies, located just under the breast, more towards the outer chest wall. She describes a pounding sensation and `swirling`....that`s her description. It doesn`t affect her breathing. Is it asthma related, or medication.....she`s on flovent and singulair. Thanks.
