Your uterus removal surgery has nothing to do with your weight gain or your joint pain. Start taking calcium tablets and focus on work out.

All About Breast Cancer

All About Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a type of cancer, which occurs due to the development of cancerous cells in breasts. Women are usually affected by breast cancer and breast cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer after skin cancer. Usually fatal if not diagnosed in its early stage, breast cancer is a very serious medical ailment. Read on more to find all about the different symptoms, causes, preventive measures and treatment of breast cancer.

Symptoms: Breast cancer has few distinct characteristics and if you have a few or all the following symptoms you could be more likely to suffer from breast cancer. 

  • The formation of a lump in your breast, which is different from the surrounding tissue and usually more thickened.
  • The discharge of bloody fluid  material from the nipples.
  • Sudden change of the size, shape and appearance of the breast.
  • Certain distinct changes to the skin over the breast for example an indentation in the skin similar to that of a dimple.
  • Appearance of an extra nipple which is inverted.
  • If the darkened area around the nipples known as the areola is flaking or peeling off. 

Causes: Studies and researches remain inconclusive on what causes breast cancer. Breast cancer occurs due to abnormal division of the cells located in the breast, which over time accumulate and form lumps. They
might spread to other parts of the body. Breast cancer is caused mainly due to a complex interaction of personal genetics, environment and lifestyle choices. Breast cancer can also be caused due to genetics as about 5% to 10% of cases are due to gene mutations which pass onto generations.

Risk factors: There are certain factors, which increase the probability of contracting breast cancer. Increasing age, personal and family history of breast cancer, obesity, radiation exposure, pregnancy at an older age, postmenopausal hormone therapy are some of the factors that increase the chances of breast cancer.

Treatment: Several forms of surgical methods exist to treat breast cancer. Depending on the condition and spread of the disease a suitable surgery is performed. These include mastectomy, lumpectomy, axillary lymph node dissection and removal of both breasts. Other forms of treatment include chemotherapy or the use of high doses of drugs to destroy cancerous cells. Radiation therapy where X-rays are used to destroy the cancer cells is also effective.

Periods may come early due to many reasons and if the flow is normal then chances of pregnancy are almost nil, but if you get disturbed period then just to be sure you can do urine pregnancy test after 26th September.

Hello, it is often natural to experience darkness in the vaginal area due to friction in most women. Keep the area dry and allow sun light exposure.

Hello- Hello- Your symptoms suggest that you might be suffering from PCOD. Symptoms include irregular or delayed menses, unwanted hair growth etc. PCOD is caused by improper food intake and improper routine specially done in the time of menses. a) Avoid spicy food fast food during the bleeding and take fresh Indian food. B) Use wet sponging instead of taking bath on those days. C) Avoid running, skipping and other exercises on those days. D)Start ayurvedic medicines ASAP.

Does vagina becomes tight when do not do sex for 1. Year but before this I do sex once in a month for 1 year.

MD Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Ahmedabad
Yes. Vagina is an elastic tube. If you do not use it, it will become tight. But you need to understand that sometimes the painfull intercourse might be due to lack of lubrication, in which case using the right lubricant will ease the intercourse. You also need to relax as sometimes resumption of sex after a long gap can give rise to vaginismus, which is psychological in cause leading to a spasm of vaginal muscles.

Your friend needs to meet uro-genital surgeon for sperm count and along with that wife should meet gynaecologist or both together to infertility specialist- for conceiving a baby. However for sexual complaints they should meet sexologist.
