It is quite common to have breast pain and a a lumpy feeling in the breast between 25-35 years of age. This commonly occurs due to hormonal changes during the menstrual period. It is best that you get an ultrasound to rule out something serious. If the ultrasound is normal, there is nothing to worry.

I am 39 years old and a mother of 3 year old girl. I have been experiencing pain in both my breasts since last two days and feel lumps too. This happens usually before my menstrual cycle and pain and lumps fade away by the end of the periods. My periods is due in 10 days time. The pain already stared and I feel lots of lumps. Should I go for cancer screening now or wait till my periods get over?

Hi, It may be due to fibroadenosis. Start with cap primerose oil bd for 15 days (7 days before and after menstrual cycle). After that you can go for so no mammography screening.

What is the main cause of cancer or tumor? Do we really know the causative agent for cancer?

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
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.

I have cough for 3 days continuously. I just wanted to know the symptoms of lung cancer?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
3 days cough is not suggestive of cancer. The most common symptoms of lung cancer are: a cough that does not go away or gets worse. Chest pain that is often worse with deep breathing, coughing, or laughing. Hoarseness. Weight loss and loss of appetite. Coughing up blood or rust-colored sputum (spit or phlegm) shortness of breath. Feeling tired or weak.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your mother. Given to understand that her cancer is now metastatic, I believe her oncologist is doing the needful to deal with complications and help her out suitably. Her present symptomatology, as you describe, is most probably owing to the cancer's spread to brain, and may as well be due to the treatment side effects. Her oncologist, nevertheless, can best decide on the palliative measures/ treatment as is contextually appropriate in her case. I would advise to not stop any medication without her oncologist's concurrence as it may worsen her condition still. Please do have a structured discussion with her oncologist, discuss all her present concerns and proceed as recommended. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely

Breast Pain - Understanding the Types and Reasons Behind it

Breast Pain - Understanding the Types and Reasons Behind it

Breast pain, also known as mastalgia, can be termed as any type of discomfort, pain or tenderness in and around the breast or the underarm region. It can also be accompanied by a sharp pain or a burning sensation.

There are two major types of breast pain

  1. Cyclical Pain: As the name suggests, this type of pain occurs on a cyclic basis and is linked with one’s menstrual cycle. It may happen when one is going through her periods and is influenced by hormonal imbalances. This type of pain is generally not a cause of concern.

  2. Non-Cyclical Pain: This is generally not common and its cause can be linked to a variety of reasons; cancer or a malignant tumour in the breast being the most severe consequence.

Causes of Breast Pain

  1. Lumpy breasts along with soreness and pain can be caused due to fibrocystic breast tissue.

  2. Hormonal imbalance can also lead to pain or discomfort in and around the breast region. Abnormal prolactin limits can also be a contributing factor.

  3. Breast cancer can also lead to pain, mostly in the left breast. Along with the pain, it can also induce a dull ache, tightness or heaviness in the chest.

Treatments for Breast pain

The various treatments for cyclical breast pain include:

  1. Making modifications in the diet

  2. Administering Vitamin E and calcium supplements

  3. Including thyroid hormonal supplements in the diet

  4. Reducing sodium intake in your diet

  5. For non-cyclical breast pain, which is often the cause of cancer, a thorough examination is recommended. A clinical biopsy will be advised if the lumpy tissues make the tumour harder to be detected through a mammogram.

  6. If the pain is on account of an injury, then appropriate painkillers will have to be administered to reduce the pain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an oncologist and ask a free question.

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.

Hi, my wife is 38 years old and have two daughters (11 4 old F/M child). She is having pain in breast nipple point. After consulting the doctor she is taking B-LONG Tab 1 per day. She is thinking that have breast cancer. Can you please advice?

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Pune
Most common symptom of breat cancer is lump in the breast or the abnormal nipple discharge. The suspicion is high if the discharge is reddish. In those cases sometimes even mass is not felt but still the possibility of the breast cancer is very high. Breast cancer pain appears generally at late stages. The usual cause of nipple pain is small crack in the region which can be treated quite easily. Please consult a surgeon nearby who after examination will answer your questions and take out your fear.

dear sir early cancers unless they are leukaemias may not effect bone marrow to cause any suppression or change in blood counts. it is only blood cancers which may cause early alteration in its counts.Adrenal cancers may effect hormonal levels so they can be detected by estimating hormonal levels.
