I am 24 year old female. I am using pregnancy conceiving tablets from last 1 and half year as I am suffering with PCOD problem. So is this a right way to take these kind of medicines for long cycles? Is this cause any harm like cancer to my body? Please reply.

Pregnancy conceiving tablets does not cause any cancer. To get pregnant you need to have fallopian tubes patent which is checked by hsg test and semen should be adequate quality which is checked by semen analysis. These both tests are done before the treatment of any infertile couple. Once the above tests are normal, then treatment with clomiphene citrate is started with monitoring of egg. Tests which r done for you are useless and will not benefit u. You need to consult a good gynecologist who would start proper treatment for u.

Respected hi see regarding act of feeling pleasure during sex criteria varies from each person to person so far as your pain in relation to pressing breast is concerned you have to do proper counselling & talk with your partner without becoming arogent that dear I am feeling more pain due to more pressure but if you r gentle in handling breast nipple areola it would be more pleasurable for you & your partner too. I am sure discussing frankly & gently will solve it definately and other things in foreplay will also help both of you to get more arousal & less breast pain dear thanks regards

Worm infestation, adequate liquids before sleeping and not going to washroom before going to bed. Off course if you do not have prostatism or high blood sugar.

Prostatitis

(less commonly prostatosis) is inflammation of the prostate gland. Prostatitis is classified into acute, chronic, asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis, and chronic pelvic pain syndrome.

Prostatitis is diagnosed in 8 percent of all urologist visits and 1 percent of all primary care physician visits

Home treatment:

Carrot juice: a glass of carrot juice taken separately or in combination with spinach juice (in 3: 2 ratio), twice a day is an excellent remedy for prostatitis and other prostrate diseases.

Tomato: tomato contains vital antioxidants that help fight bacterial infection. It also contains bioflavonoid lycopene, which helps decrease incidence of urination. Thus tomato is an excellent remedy for prostatitis.

Cranberries: cranberries are a rich in antioxidants and other natural compounds which are very effective in treatment of urinary tract disorders like prostatitis. Cranberries have also been found effective in prostrate cancer.

Watermelon seeds: seeds of watermelon contain certain vital unsaturated fatty acids, which helps maintain ph level in of the urinary tract and bladder which is essential for maintaining a healthy prostrate. Watermelon seeds are recommended as a natural cure for prostatitis.

Papaya: papaya is a rich source ofbioflavonoid lycopene which is very essential for maintaining good prostrate health. This makes papaya an excellent home remedy for prostatitis.

Turmeric roots: the root of turmeric plant contains curcumin, which is a powerful anto toxin and helps alleviate inflammation of prostrate. A decoction made by boiling turmeric root in watecr when taken in 100 ml dosage, twice a day is an excellent remedy for prostatitis.

Diet recommendation
Diet comprising of steamed vegetables, fresh fruits, whole grains and soy are effective in treatment of prostatitis.
Drink plenty of water (at least 10 glasses a day to increase flow of urine).

Foods to be avoided:
Spicy food and condiments
Acidic food
Food containing excessive starch (rice, barley, cornmeal, rye, breads, oatmeal,)
Cheese
All kinds of meat (red meat is a strict no)
Food containing white refined sugar (sweets, candies, pie, cake etc)
Tea, coffee and alcohol
Excess salty food.

Please see a surgeon. You need an Ultrasound of the breasts. You probably have Fibroadenosis only-your history is typlical. Please apply Xylocaine Jelly 2 percent on the breast when you have pain. Nothing else to be done.

Can I continue to use complementary therapies, take herbal remedies or vitamin supplements when I'm on chemotherapy? Can I do sports when I’m on chemotherapy? Can I drink alcohol when I’m on chemotherapy? Can I eat what I want when I’m on chemotherapy? Can I follow an anti-cancer diet whilst receiving chemotherapy? Can I go on holiday abroad when I’m on chemotherapy? Can I have sex when I’m on chemotherapy? Can I smoke when I’m on chemotherapy? How will I know if the chemotherapy is working? If I can’t work, is there any financial support that I can get?

You can take vitamin supplements but I do not advocate any kind of alternative therapies while on chemotherapy. You can take part in sports but be careful not to over exert and not to get exposed to injury and infection. Indoor games would be ideal. Do not use alcohol and tobacco while on chemotherapy, as mucositis may worsen apart from developing resistance to therapy. While on chemotherapy we restrict certain food which may harbour infection, so you must avoid. You can take freshly cooked home made healthy food. Traveling abroad may depend on your chemotherapy schedule, if it permits then you may but please take travelling insurance while you go abroad for any emergencies. You can have sex but using contraceptive, preferably barrier methods. Chemotherapy response will be assessed during its course by your oncologist. There is no specific provision or legal boundation that you must be supported financially, it depends on your company policy.

That depends upon the cause of rise in size. If this was some infection, the size will automatically come to normal over some more weeks. But if you are having hydrocele or some cyst etc. Surgical correction may be required.

Prostate symptoms can be managed by medicines but if medical treatment is not reliving surgery is the only option. But cause of prostatomegaly should be evaluated first. Psa levels should be checked, clinical examination of prostate should be done. Ultrasound prostate should be done. If these findings indicate chances of cancer then proatate biopsy has to be done before deciding the treatment direction as treatment of cancer and non cacerous conditions differ significantly.

Hey doctor, can you tell what is cancer and how does it occur. Is there any prevention method or cure for this disease?

MBBS
General Physician
Ask Free Question
Genetic changes that cause cancer can be inherited from our parents. They can also arise during a person’s lifetime as a result of errors that occur as cells divide or because of damage to DNA caused by certain environmental exposures. Cancer-causing environmental exposures include substances, such as the chemicals in tobacco smoke, and radiation, such as ultraviolet rays from the sun. no prevention. thanks

A number of studies suggest that current use of OC’s appears to slightly increase the risk of breast cancer, especially among younger women. But for short courses it does not harm u. Women who use OC’s have reduced risks of ovarian and endometrial cancer. This protective effect increases with the length of time oral contraceptives are used.
