Doctor

A:   Thank you for your query.
It is advisable that you see the doctor who will examine you physically and see if you have an infection in the breasts because of which you may having fever and soreness. You can also get a blood test done for βhCG to know if you have conceived, this blood test will be more sensitive and can detect low levels of hormone and at very early stages also.
Hope that answers your query. Have a good day.

Patient: Ok well as far as an infection..i have been eating steak...alot of steak and I tend to not cook that well done...and I was also wondering if it could be a problem with my liver...although I dont drink heavily anymore..i did use to drink..for four years..every day all day and hard liquor and drugs to boot..ive been clean for a year and also I don't feel any odd lumps in my breast but my mother past away four years ago battling breast cancer..she was 45..i don't have insurance and I don't wanna run up a bill for something silly..so what other symptoms should I watch for, that would say yes definitely go to the doctor
Guest: Dear doctor I have had quite a lot of blood and little blood clots and now I have stopped what dose it mean
