I have bilateral axillary lymphadenitis since 3 years and it increase in size with age. Now its more discomfort for me while sleeping. It cause intense pain when axilla pressed against bed and pain increases during menses. Also I felt pain in may tail of breast both side. And also my LMP is not one. It fluctuates from the time of menarche. I think menstrual cycle is of 35 days. Now my question is should I operate to remove the swellings or continue medical treatment. Can it recur? Can it become malignant if I do not operate? Is there any complication if I ignored now?

Your symptoms suggest axillary tail of the breast extending in to arm pits. If it is very painful they should be removed. As far as malignancy is concerned they are breast tissue and have the same chance of developing malignancy as the rest of the breast. You should also get fnac done before planning for surgery.

Mam, if husband has bp and sugar, this is not going to disturb wife's pregnancy. If she is healthy. But because these diseases have genetic connection it may carry to child. There are many more factors can cause bp and sugar. So please don't worry about this. 38 years is not unsafe to carry pregnancy, a monitoring may be required.

Actually you can continue with sexual intercourse through out the pregnancy if you are comfortable and there is no history of pain or bleeding in pregnancy. If there is history of abortion or preterm birth its better avoid sex in first 3 months and last 3 months. Iind trimester is safe.

The problem is simple. Try weight loss by diet and exercise and half of your problem will be solved. Irregular periods can easily be regularised after some tests and then advising drugs. Low sperm count is not a headache at al. Many of my patients conceived with even zero sperm count. So, don't get afraid. Good luck.

Hi lybrate user, it looks like local irritation due to infection. Please visit gynaecologist for internal examination so it can be treated with medication. She should keep local area clean and dry. Use cotton undergarments and change it twice a day. Wear loose cotton trousers.

Hello Doctor I am 32 years old male and my wife is 31 years old we are blessed with an Angel who is now 5. Years old. My wife had an absolute normal delivery and now we are planning for a second child from the past 2 months but not getting positive result. I know this is not a big period for trying but I don't want to waste my time in hit trail method I am taking folic acid tablet from the past 10 days. I heard of treatment named IUI which is safer and quicker in results also. I live in Faridabad (NCR) and want to know if opting IUI is a good option and about its cost and pros. And cons. I appreciate your prompt reply on this.

Yes iui is absolutely safe procedure, and you can go for it if you don't want to wait to conceive naturally. It will cost you around 6000 without medication, as use of medicine depends from person to person according to the finding and cause. It has not side effects as its close to natural conceiving, in this process semen is washed and directly inseminated into partner's uterus, no surgery and anesthesia is required.

Ipill doesn't work as abortifacient. Fir abortion the options are medical or surgical (d&e), depending on the duration of pregnancy. Youll have to consult a gynecologist for the same, since abortion meds can't be prescribed online. And please don't delay. Also use a safer method of protection next time.

Why You Should Avoid Processed Food

B.Sc. Food & Nutrition, M.Sc. Food & Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Bangalore
Why You Should Avoid Processed Food

Not eating that bag of chips or drinking that bottle of soda is a difficult temptation to resist, especially if you eat them more than a few times a week. But these are not good for you; they are a storehouse of chemicals, which can wreak havoc on your health.

Here are seven reasons why you should avoid processed food:

  1. They are very addictive: When your body digests processed food, it overstimulates the proliferation of a neurotransmitter called dopamine. Dopamine makes you feel pleasure, which increases your cravings. And, cravings lead to more consumption, thus you get addicted to processed food.
  2. Cause damage to your bones and organs: Processed food contains phosphates that not only add taste, shelf-life and texture, but also end up damaging your bones and organs. Phosphates have been linked to premature aging, weak bones and kidney damage.
  3. Lead to digestion problems: Processed foods are usually rid of their natural enzymes, fibres and vitamins. This creates severe problems in your digestive system. Consuming such foods harms the good bacteria in your gut, which makes you vulnerable to infections.
  4. Can lead to mental degradation: If you find your memory slackening or you're finding it hard to concentrate, then you can blame your diet. Junk food, it has been found, gives you mood swings, makes your energy levels unstable and leaves you feeling angry and agitated.
  5. GMOs: Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are what replace the 'real' ingredients in processed food. GMOs have been associated with infertility, gastrointestinal disorders, cancer and organ damage.
  6. Pesticides: For the GMOs to grow, farmers use herbicides and pesticides, which end up in your food. For example, certain cereals have been found to contain more than 70 types of pesticides.
  7. Processed food is artificial: When you compare real food with processed food, the obvious difference would be the way real food deteriorates over time, just like they should, while processed food remains the same. Processed food does not change with time, and proves how synthetic they are essentially. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
