Can most women achieve "ideal" bodies through diet and exercise?
Stuart Linder, MD, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, answeredThe concept of the ideal body is highly individualized and relative. Each woman has her own perception on what the beautiful and or proportionate body is. Those whom are truly significantly above their ideal body weight may attempt diet and exercise. Unfortunately, both genetics and increased age with hormonal changes may make it impossible to lose excess weight.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
How is a woman’s oral health connected to her overall health?
American Dental Association answered
The healthier your mouth and gums are, the more likely you are to be healthy overall. Your mouth is a window into the health of your body. It can show signs of nutritional deficiencies or general infection. Systemic diseases, those that affect the entire body, may first become apparent because of mouth lesions or other oral problems although there is no conclusive research showing that severe gum disease raises a risk of heart disease.
Many women have special oral health needs and considerations since hormonal fluctuations can have a surprisingly strong influence on the oral cavity. Puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, menopause, and use of contraceptive medications all influence women’s oral health.
What does it mean if I have nipple discharge?
Johns Hopkins Medicine answered
Nipple discharge can be common for pre-menopausal women, or women who are about to stop having a monthly period. The discharge is a normal result of hormone changes happening in your body. The liquid can leak from either or both breasts.
Some forms of nipple discharge can indicate a bigger problem. These forms of more concerning nipple discharges include:
- Bloody nipple discharge: If you have bloody discharge oozing from your breast, you may have a papilloma. This is a wart-like mass inside your milk duct that irritates your tissue and produces the bloody liquid. This can also be a symptom of breast cancer.
- Greenish nipple discharge: If you have nipple discharge that it army green in color, you may have a breast cyst underneath the nipple and areola area that is spontaneously draining. Your doctor can confirm and evaluate this problem with imaging studies, like an ultrasound, which creates a digital picture of the inside of your breast.
- Clear nipple discharge: If you have clear nipple discharge, you may have abnormal or even cancerous cells, inside your breast. The risk of cancer is lower when both breasts leak discharge.
If you have any kind of nipple discharge, it is important to consult your doctor, as it may signal other worrisome health problems. If you have discharge coming from one or both of your breasts, and if the discharge is new and has not been thoroughly investigated, we strongly recommend that you make an appointment with a breast specialist.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
