Why we can not stop the growth of the cancer cell and why the ratio of diabetes in america is high.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer is caused by abnormal uncontrolled proliferation of cells which may be triggered by some genetic mutations may be due to chemicals, pollution, radiation etc. Since the cause lies at genetic level the treatment has to be at that level only, but it's really very difficult to find out faulty gene which is controlling the whole process, lots of researches are going on, we may have some solutions in years to come. American lifestyle, eating habits are responsible for lifestyle related illness.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology
Oncologist,
Hi, darkening of the skin on the forehead is not a symptom of skin cancer. It may be due to compression over the area due to your cap or helmet etc if you use them. Please consult a skin specialist if any of the above don't apply. You nay have to use some cream or ointment for a temporary period. Hope this helps. Take care.

Please suggest a health checkup plan to ascertain whether a person is having cancer or not.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
There is no single test to completely eliminate the risk of cancer. However there are a few tests which depending on the patient profile, may be used suitably to detect common cancers early, so that they can be treated more effectively. There is no universal solution and varies from person to person.

Both breast pain. I am 39 years old. I also removed my uterus and right ovarian before two years.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Both breast pain. I am 39 years old. I also removed my uterus and right ovarian before two years.
Breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, but your uterus is removed so keep watch that it occurs for few days in a month. If so it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month or if you can feel some lump/swelling then you may need to do ultrasound examination of breasts. For pain you can take paracetamol tablets, also wearing a well fitting cotton bra may help.

Any lump in the breast should be thoroughly investigated and treated, preferably by surgery. Histopathology (biopsy) to be done of the excised lump to rule out malignancy.

Dear mam, breast lump and chest pain may be separate problems, for breast lump, try to feel from the flat of hands and you can also go for clinical breast examination by a clinician supplementing it with ultrasound breast. Don't worry, at your age we usually find benign lumps.

Dear Lybrate User, Benign Hypertrophy of Prostate is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. In this clinical condition multiple nodules are formed inside the prostate gland. These nodules often compress the urethra resulting in the narrowing of the lumen of urethra & producing a resistance to the urine flow. Resistance to urine flow requires the bladder to work harder during voiding, possibly leading to progressive enlargement, instability, or weakness of the bladder muscle. Benign Hypertrophy of Prostate can be easily diagnosed by an USG of whole abdomen along with blood test for Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA). Follow the given medication as directed:- 1) 5 drops of Homoeopathic CAUSTICUM 30 at early morning daily before brushing teeth 2) 5 drops of Homoeopathic CONIUM MAC 30 before going to bath daily. 3) 5 drops of Homoeopathic BARYTA CARB 30 just one hour before dinner daily. 4) Homoeopathic Mother Tincture SABAL SERRULATA Q, 30 drops, twice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with the aforesaid medication few changes in your lifestyle are also necessary. Lifestyle alterations to address the symptoms include decreasing fluid intake before bedtime, moderating the consumption of alcohol and caffeine-containing products, and following a timed voiding schedule. Also it would be better if you could void the urine in sitting position.

Dear the symptoms you are getting are due to dryness of the mouth, this is because of lack of mucus in the mouth which is protective layer of our mouth, and is being produced in the mouth by glands which will be helped by good and healthy blood supply to the glands, blood with good blood cells will take oxygen to the gland and gland works, they require oxygen in ample of amount, so if you do not take iron diet on daily basis than this will lead to less of mucus production and hence lead to dryness and thick mucus problem, this thick mucus leads to irritation in mouth hence leads to itching in the mouth, start taking good iron diet on daily basis, and shakes, avoid salty and spicy food.

Flax seeds prevent Breast Cancer

Flax seeds prevent Breast Cancer

Flax seeds prevent Breast Cancer

Flaxseeds contain several beneficial plant compounds:

1. Lignans: Lignans are present in almost all plants, acting as both antioxidants and phytoestrogens. Flaxseeds are the richest known dietary source of lignans. These nutrients function as phytoestrogens.

Phytoestrogens are plant compounds that are similar to the female sex hormone estrogen. They have weak estrogenic and antioxidant properties

Lignans are fermented by bacteria in the digestive system and may reduce the growth of several cancers, especially hormone-sensitive cancers such as breast, uterus and prostate cancers.

They have been linked to a decreased risk of heart disease and metabolic syndrome, since they reduce the amount of fat and glucose in the blood.

Phytoestrogens also help lower blood pressure and reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the arteries.

2. P-Coumaric Acid: This polyphenol is one of the main antioxidants found in flaxseeds.

3. Ferulic Acid: This antioxidant may help to prevent several chronic diseases.

4. Cyanogenic Glycosides: These substances may form compounds called thiocyanates in the body, which can impair thyroid function in some people.

5. Phytosterols: Related to cholesterol,phytosterols are found in the cell membranes of plants. They have been shown to have cholesterol-lowering effects in the body.

Flax Seeds are very easy to incorporate into the diet. Grinding them is the best way to make the most of their health benefits.

Causes and Symptoms of Fibroadenomas

MD-Gynaecologist & Obstetrician , MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Causes and Symptoms of Fibroadenomas

Fibroadenomas are benign non carcinogenic tumors that occur in the breasts of women. Although the condition may affect females of any age; spanning from pubescent girls to middle aged ladies, yet it is most commonly diagnosed in young women below 30 years of age. Fibroadenomas can be described as a stiff, smooth, supple marble under the skin of your breasts, which move when touched. These tumors which occur in varied sizes, may shrink or expand with time. Diagnosing through biopsies and treatment by surgeries are commonly employed for such a condition.

Types of Fibroadenomas
Fibroadenomas are of two types: simple fibroadenomas and complex fibroadenomas. The simple tumors are usually harmless and almost look the same under the lens of a microscope. On the other hand, the complex tumors are comprised of macro cysts (large fluid-filled sacs) and calcifications (deposits of calcium) which can slightly increase the chance of breast cancer.

What is the primary cause of Fibroadenomas?
Doctors aren't able to pinpoint the chief cause of fibroadenomas, but they have reasons to believe that the condition may pertain to the reproductive hormones. The condition may occur during pregnancy or during the use of hormone therapy, owing to which, the tumors may increase in size. The tumors are usually seen to shrink postmenopause, when the hormone levels start to dwindle. You can also take the package for Living Healthy - Woman.

Fibroadenomas are apparent and you may be able to detect them even without a doctor. The marble like tumor within your breasts are usually:

  1. Painless
  2. Firm
  3. Rubbery and elastic
  4. Easily movable

These tumors can range from being too small to as big as 3 inches or more in diameter. These lumps, which are usually harmless may be a cause of concern if they start to grow or change. Consulting a doctor is duly advised in such cases.

Risks: Fibroadenomas, only in the rarest cases, increase the likelihood of breast cancer. A complex fibroadenoma comprising of cysts or thick tissues called calcifications may aggravate your condition. Causes of concern could be if the tumor pains, a family history of cancer or an event of a questionable biopsy report. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized gynaecologist and ask a free question.
