Hello I am 22 year old guy from india, I am smoking from 4 years, my right tonsil is swollen and I was feeling pain, I took some antibiotics after consulting a doctor, now there is no pain, but its still swollen, please reply if its cancer ?

Oncologist,
Dear Lybrate User, It's unlikely to be a cancer. However if it continues to be there for a long time or if it grows in size then a biopsy from the tonsil can help to confirm or refute if it's a cancer.

Be supportive keep reassuring him that you all are there with him no matter what, normalize the situation by telling him that its ok to fail once twice thrice even the most successful people have failed in exams or were dropouts, tell him inspirational things, take him out for outing to his favorite place, make him join some classes music etc whatever he likes and keep a very positive enviroment at home. Ask him what he wants to do and be encouraging. If it persists take him to a psychologist.

Hello lybrate-user, If you were good at something before and you are good now, then there must be something in between the two spaces in your life. This needs to be explored. But whatever be the case, there is no reason for you to be thinking of such extreme thoughts. There will be other challenges in life and a good thing will be to pick up the pieces in your life and think of tomorrow as a new day. First step in the whole process will be to bring you out of this negative thinking loop. Sometimes just giving oneself a little break helps. Don't give up ever, ok? Take care.

You can change your room. Give mobile to your mom while studying. You may download few relaxing music or instrumental music to run in background while studying. This will help you in getting control on your poor attention, so that you may concentrate on your studies. All the best.

lybrate-user, your symptoms are typical of depression. In depression people experience sad feelings, lack of interest or energy, poor motivation or concentration, suicidal thoughts when severe, lack of sleep or appetite, can't enjoy, world seems dull or feel world is coming to end, don't see a point in living. Your doctor had given right medication. It takes few weeks sometimes to see the effect of it, so keep taking every day. Please keep physically active, eat well, share your feelings with close ones. Involve in activities you enjoy doing. Follow up with your doctor regularly as depression can last 6 months to a year.

Alcohol - How Over Consumption Affects Your Body?

MBBS, MD-Psychiatry

Alcohol - How Over Consumption Affects Your Body?

Alcohol addiction commonly known as alcoholism is a fairly common problem that has shown to affect people from every walk of life. Scientists have tried to pinpoint the absolute cause behind alcoholism, but to no success. Certain factors like sex, genetic, and socioeconomic factors have shown to have some effect on alcoholism. The cause of alcoholism is never singular. Alcohol addiction is indeed a disease, where a person may not have full control over his actions and is seen to change the neurochemistry of the brain.

The symptoms of alcohol addiction can be seen in many ways and the severity of the situation varies from person to person. Other factors such as the frequency of consumption may also be specific. While some people are heavy drinkers and drink throughout the day; others may drink occasionally and remain sober for a few days.

A person who is dependent on alcohol will prioritise drinking over other essential activities and will eventually cause disruption in his social life, work or other areas of his life. It can also create a negative effect in the victim’s life along with their families and their near and dear ones.

What are the signs of alcohol addiction and alcohol abuse?
The signs and symptoms of alcoholism or addiction are rather conspicuous. Since drinking alcohol is common in social events in most cultures around the world, it becomes difficult to recognise when someone is addicted to alcohol, unlike drugs like cocaine and heroin.

The physical signs of alcohol abuse include:

  1. Loss of control over the quantity of alcohol consumed.
  2. Lack of adequate sleep, followed by overcompensation for sleep.
  3. Expression of anger and other negative behaviours my increase in inappropriate places and situations.
  4. Lack of proper attention towards the priorities in life.

How does alcohol affect the body?
Chronic abuse of alcohol can have negative effects on almost every part of your body and plays havoc in your system. Alcohol is liable to cause irreversible damage to several organs of the body which is vital for sustenance:

  • Nervous system
  • Stomach or Intestines
  • Liver
  • Heart
  • Brain

Alcoholism in itself can lead to several diseases like:

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Sir I have anxiety. Please help me how to reduce anxiety. Whenever anxiety comes I'm feeling to pass motion urgently.

Sir I have anxiety. Please help me how to reduce anxiety. Whenever anxiety comes I'm feeling to pass motion urgently.
At your age this is rather serious, meaning that this could be a sign of something important to take care of. There is the problem of hormonal imbalances and as well as some unresolved issues from childhood. A counselor will definitely help. Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful, if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.
