27 years old male from Hyderabad asked
Hi I was operated for thyroid cancer successfully underwent TT and currently on Thyronorm 150 mcg can I consume FLAX seeds daily in the morning? Will it affect my Thyroid hormone?
Hi, As far as I know flax seeds are rich in omega 3 fatty acids which are otherwise predominantly found in fish. This has got nothing to with thyroid harmone. So you can consume these seeds without worrying about thyroid hormone. I'm not sure whther you can consume them daily or not. You can take the help of a nutritionist. Hope this helps. Regards

Hi sir/mam I found breast lump in left breast 8 months back but there is no swelling discharge or any symptoms but pain at time of menses that's it I saw in some articles all breast lumps are not cause cancer pizz give me suggestion it cause any severe condition in future what precautions I should take.
Hi, It is true that all breast lumps will not lead to cancer. But it is not advisable to neglect any kind breast lump. A breast lump not causing any pain, swelling, discharge etc may silently turn into a cancer. I suggest you to consult a general surgeon and get it examined once. He/she will be the right person to tell you what it is. Take care.

Sir / Maam I had unprotected sex with my girlfriend on 27th August. After 6 hours she took ipill (ecp) .After 4 days I.e On 1st September she started bleeding and she bleed for 4 days. Then after 21 days of Intercourse, we did 4 home urine pregnancy test which were on 18 September, 25th September ,2 October and on 9th October. All the test came NEGATIVE. We even did bHCG test on 18th October. The result was <1.2 miU/ml. On 23rd October she started bleeding which continued till 29th October. My question is that can we rule out pregnancy now? She had stomach pain today. Can it be related to pregnancy?
Hi, As menstruation occurred after 4 days of taking i-pill, there was no necessity to go for urine pregnancy tests, bHCG test. Menstruation stops only if there is fertilization of ovum with sperm. She has already bleed two times since you both had unprotected sex. It means that you can rule out pregnancy without any doubt. Stomach pain is may be due to some other reason but definitely not due to pregnancy. Hope this helps. Regards

Hello doctor. Actually I had a dog bite on 5th august by a stray dog and after that I am taking rabipur vaccinations only my last injection is left which is on 29th but today I had a dog bite by my pet dog who is well vaccinated so is it important to start the rabipur vaccinations again? Or I can have just TT? I have washed the wound and let all the blood out.
Hi, no need to take rabipur vaccine again. If you have taken tt injection previously, no need to take it again. You seem to be vulnerable to dog bites. Just be careful next time!

Hi, unfortunately treatment for diabetes is life long. You can control the disease to some extent with some life style modifications like exercising, not eating rice, sugar, sweets etc, taking your medications regularly, monitoring your blood sugar regularly will help you to lead a normal life without worrying about diabetes. Thank you.

Last Friday I went a massage parlour only rub my penis her hands and do a hand job no sex only sperm release during hand job it's safe or not hiv and std no sex only hand job.
Hiv spreads only when body fluids of both partners are involved. In your case as there is only hand job, the possibility of getting hiv is zero.

Is eating cucumber after sunset harmful or has any side effect? I am asking this question because many older people say that we shold not eat it at night. Please guide.
Hello, cucumber has lot of water content. Eating cucumber at night may disturb your sleep as you need to get up to urinate. Apart from this, I don't see any other reason for not eating cucumber after sunset.

I am 52 years old. I got one ligament damaged in both legs knee. My left shortened by 3/4" due to gun shot injury. Presently I am feeling my shoulders and neck being jaam gradually. Perhaps this is symptums of survical spondolitis. I am suffering from osteo arthiritis. Since my child hood I am facing constipation and gastro problems. I am doing some physical activity to keep myself fit in my agricultural fields. More over I use to play volly ball regularly. I reduced my weight from 90 to 74 kg. My height is 5'8" (170 cm). What I should do.
Hello, I understand your concern. Neck stiffness, shoulder stiffness, neck pain these are all due to cervical spondylosis. This is a age related disorder common in old age. For this problem I suggest you to consult a physiotherapist who will teach you some exercises which will help you to reduce the stiffness of neck and shoulder. Additionally, you can take tab. Zerodol-mr 1 tab whenever needed. Osteoarthritis is again a different problem to deal with. As it is a degenerative diaease of joint it is difficult to treat with medication. I really appreciate what you are doing, i. E, weight loss, playing volleyball, working field. All these help you to reduce pain. Additionally, you can try some stretching exercise of joints. Ex. Yoga. Tha tablet which I have mentioned above will also help you to reduce the pain from osteoarthritis. Constipation and gastric problem: try to increase fibre content in your food. Add green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Drink luke warm water as soon as you get up. This will stimulate the gut. Try to develop a habit og going to toilet at the same time daily. This will help your body to get adjust to that time. For gastric problem, you might be already taking some medication. Additionally, avoid tea coffee, spicy food. Take care. If you need any further information you can always contact me through lybrate.

I am 16 year old girl. and I feel lumps in my left breast. I am scared to tell my mom that something is weird with breast. What should I do? is that lump a breast cancer?
Hello, I understand your concern. Thank you for your question. A lump in the breast is may be because of inflamation or due to hormonal changes which is common in this age. Considering your age breast cancer is less likely. If the lump is painful it is because of some inflammation. It will reduce after some time. I suggest you to watch it carefully. If it increases in size, you develop pain it is better to tell your mom. You should not be afraid to talk about these kind of health problems. Ask your mom to take you to a general surgeon or ob/gyn doctor. She will examine and tell what exactly is that lump. Nothing to worry. I'm strongly of the opinion that its not cancer. Take care.

Hi doctor. my father is diabetic from past 15 years. He even had some kidney problems now he is ok and his cholesterol is also little high. Since he is having gastric problem also he wants started drinking every day morning warm water with lemon and small ginger plus little salt mix. Does this going effect any way on is kidney or heart.?
Hello, I don't think having warm water with lemon and ginger will help to reduce gastric problem. However, having warm water with lemon and ginger in the morning will help to improve metabolism of the body which is really good. I suggest your father to continue to have both tablet for gastritis (whenever needed) and warm water daily. Warm water with lemon+ginger will not affect your father's kidney in any way. Nothing to worry about that. Cholesterol level can be controlled by regular exercise. Take care of your father. For further assistance you can concern me privately.
57 years old female from Hyderabad asked
My mother-in-law is diabetic & under medication for the same. A couple of days back around 9am she felt weak & giddy. We asked her to lie down & immediately gave her some sugar to chew. She was not responding to us & was giving blank looks. After some time she got up and started going around normally but the previous 3 hours activity was erased from her mind. What could be the reason? whether we were correct in giving her sugar to eat? any test required?
Hello, diabetic patients are more prone to develop hypoglycaemia (low sugar level). The episode which you have narrated is because of this. You did a great job by giving sugar to your mother-in law at the time. You just saved her. Brain is mainly dependent on sugar. When blood glucose level goes down even for a fraction of seconds, patients will develop dizziness, loss of consciousness, seizure etc. Timely food intake will help to avoid such episodes.For further assistance you can concern me privately.

I am 26 years old male, I smoke 20 cigarettes a day can I donate blood to a friend having same blood group?
Hello, first of all, I appreciate your concern for your friend. Donating blood is a precious work. Do encourage other people to do the same. Coming to your query, yes, you can donate blood. But you should also fulfill other criterias. Usually you'll be given a screening form before donating blood. Based on which you may or may not be eligible to donate. I advice you to reduce the number of cigarettes you are smoking per day.

I got a tetanus shot last year after cutting myself while cleaning a window at home. It was a minor cut and I got the tetanus shot as a precaution. Today I cut myself on a rusted nail. Should I get the booster shot?
You need not to take the vaccine again as your previous shot will act for 10 years. Clean the wound with water and soap. Keep the wounded area clean to avoid infection. Take care.

Hello sir, i'm rajneesh. Sir i've a running nose for last 2 years. I wanted to know what could be the reason and what are the medicines to cure it. Waiting for your valuable reply. Thankyou.
Hello , you might be having allergic rhinitis, in which you'll be allergic to some dust, pollen etc. Whenever you get exposed to such allergens (allergic substances) you'll have running nose. Take tab cetrezine 10mg twice daily to reduce symptoms. Try to wear a mask whenever you go out or when exposed to dust. Identifying the specific allergen to which you may be allergic is a difficult task. Even after taking the above tablet if your symptoms persists, you can consult me privately on lybrate for further treatment plans. Take care.

Once if a person gets chickenpox in his childhood then is it possible he will be infected again in his adulthood?
Hello , chicken pox is a viral disease. It occurs most commonly below the age of 12 years i. E, in childhood. It may even occur in adults. Once infected, our body develops resistance to it and the chances of getting infected again how string is our body's immunity. If the immunity (resistance power) is strong enough to fight the infection then chances of getting infected again are very less. If it is low then chances are more. If you have any other queries related to your health, you can always consult me privately.Take care.
