Fauci Warns Not to Take This Medication With Covid Vaccine
Be aware of a side-effect that produces temporary symptoms that could be misinterpreted as breast cancer.
If you’re lucky enough to get a COVID-19 vaccine appointment, you’ll want to make sure you do everything in your power to make sure things go as smoothly as possible. With this in mind, you should be aware that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), other medical professionals, including Dr. Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), are urging Americans to hold off taking pain relievers like Advil or Tylenol before getting vaccinated.
But there’s more to know. In a new interview with CBSN, Dr. Anthony Fauci is not only warning against over-the-counter pain relievers for 30 days after you have taken the COVID vaccine. He is also warning about a side effect that may appear serious but isn’t and to keep it in mind as to not cause undue concern about your health.
Dr. Fauci and The Society of Breast Imaging warn about a side-effect affecting a good number of those who have taken the COVID vaccines. It’s possible the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines may cause the presentation of symptoms that are identical to axillary [in the armpit] lymph node swelling, which could be interpreted by a physician unaware of the vaccine side-effect as mimic a sign of breast cancer…
“Since the axillary lymph nodes are near the outer breast, the sight of them swollen during a breast exam could easily raise concern. The statement detailed how professionals should document such an occurrence and suggested people wait to schedule their appointment to prevent unnecessary worry.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that this side-effect that manifests itself as symptoms of axillary lymph node swelling has been found in both men and women during the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine trials. According to Forbes…
“Swollen lymph nodes are a common immune response that occurs with various vaccines, including the flu vaccine, hepatitis vaccines, polio vaccine, and the tetanus vaccine.”
Hormone expert and founder of Revitalize Medical Group Tara Scott, MD, have been quoted in the media as saying…
“The lymph system is your drainage system, and they respond to inflammation; your underarm (or axillary lymph nodes) nodes are the ones closest to the arm—and to the breast—so they would be visible on a mammogram.”
