My wife is in the early stage of pregnancy (three weeks. Can she have cashew nuts/dry fruits at this stage.
Keep in mind that nuts are high in fat and calories, so it’s better to consume them in their natural state, without frying them. Dried fruits are also caloric. That’s why, eat them in moderation – stick to one handful of dried fruits or nuts a day.

If you have washed yourself properly with soap and water after that then it is ok unless you have any symptoms there is no need to worry as it was running water and the effect would have got over by now.

Me (23) and my partner (22) planning to have sex for the first time. I have few doubts and now putting in front of you. 1. Shall I use condom or ask her to take pills to avoid getting pregnant. If pills is still good, which pills is good and any disadvantages? 2. Is there any energy drink to stay long time in bed? Red bull is fine? 3. What are the other things we need to take care. Please give me solution doctors. Thank You all.

Can Breast Cancer Be Predicted Before It Develops?

Can Breast Cancer Be Predicted Before It Develops?

Medical science constantly challenges the boundaries by finding not only the cures to the most dangerous diseases, but finds a way to prevent them even before they occur. With years of research, practice and data available for analysis, scientists are using advanced technology in combination with years of research to create a predicting mechanism for often fatal diseases like cancer.

Breast cancer screening has always been done with mammography. The fact is that this method is only 75% accurate, laden with false positives and misses a whole set of women totally- and that too when cancer has already developed. Part of the problem comes from the dense breast tissue which one in three women have. This tissue masks the lumps, which makes it difficult for mammograms to accurately screen cancer.

Some breakthrough scientific methods are changing this by drawing on years of research to predict this deadly disease, years before it can manifest itself.

A genetic test to predict cancer 10-11 years ahead of time
This test was performed to see how environmental factors could influence cancer, along with habits like smoking, abusing alcohol or hormones, genetic changes that occur and are put a large percentage of the women at a high risk of developing this disease.

A simple blood test is used for the genetic analysis of hereditary cancer. Researchers found a biological marker, methylation of the ATM gene, which has a very high ability to predict the risk of developing cancer, several years before diagnosis. 'Methylation' concluded that when one biological indicator is exposed to carcinogenic substances, or other abusive substances like tobacco and alcohol, it may trigger the development of cancer. On the flip side, this test will take time to reach the commercial market and even then cannot give an exact timeline as to when someone may develop the disease.

A simple blood test to predict breast cancer 5 years before it develops
This is the kind of medical miracle the world is looking for. Last year in April, researches in Denmark identified a simple blood test that can predict breast cancer five years before it actually develops with an accuracy of a whopping 80%.

It works by "measuring all of the compounds in the blood to build a 'metabolic profile' of an individual, in order to detect changes in the way chemicals are processed, during a pre-cancerous stage," says Laura Donnelly, health editor at The Telegraph, which covered this development. Danish researchers observed 57,000 participants over 20 years, gathering blood samples along the way, specifically comparing a set of 800 women who remained healthy or developed breast cancer within 7 years of their first blood sample. The researchers found they were able to predict, with 80 percent accuracy, which patients would be affected by the disease, just by looking at the metabolic profiles they built from the participants' blood samples. The results have been published in Metabolomics.

I am 17 year old female. My vagina smells and some time I feel burning sensation.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
At 17 years your body is still maturing and by that I mean the vagina, uterus and ovaries are growing. During this growth the vaginal lining gets transformed from a delicate lining to a slightly tougher one. This change is also accompanied by growth of cells and destruction of old cells. The vaginal area also gets colonised by healthy bacteria they provide a better protection from infections by regulating the ph of the vagina. Due to food fads and some fungal infections the bacteria of this area are altered and this causes itching and burning sensation. The smell is also due to this alteration. I would like to sugegst to you few home remedies: 1. Wear cotton inner clothes 2, if you sweat a lot, have a bath two times a day 3. After passing urine and during cleaning the private parts, always wipe the area from front to back and not from back to front. Wiping back to front is harmful as it transfers harmful bacteria from anus to the vulva and this causes change in ph and infections. 4. Using scented personal hygiene products also cause more harm by making the ph change. 5. Use a moisturising soap for washing the vulva and avoid the" commercial" vaginal wash if these measures do not help, seek a gynecologist and get examined to get the assessment and treatment if required.

Normally there is no bad effect if pregnancy is normal. But you should always cross check with your gynecologist. In the last trimester of pregnancy one should take care that there is not much pressure on abdomen. Lateral positions are better way to avoid undue pressures.
