Hi looks like you have problem in your breasts. First of all for breast sonography that is ultrasound and also go for blood test for serum prolactin, don't worry it is curable, even if there is a growth in the breast it will be harmless like a fibroadenoma.

Blood cancer is a wide term and includes various types of leukemias. The common symptoms include repeated infections and severe weakness. Some may have enlarged spleen causing a swelling in left side of upper abdomen. Due to reduced platelets, there may be bleeding from different parts of the body including bleeding from nose and with stool. Hemoglobin is usually reduced severely. The treatment includes chemotherapy and in some cases, bone marrow transplantation. Some blood cancer like cml requires oral treatment. Maintaining healthy life is the only thing which can be done to protect from all sorts of cancer.

Hodgkin lymphoma has high cure rates. In early stages it is treated by chemotherapy followed by radiotherapy. In most cases the disease presents early. You can send imaging (radiological) investigations in private. Only after reviewing your imaging reports, I can opine disease stage.

Dear sir, cancer is a disease which is related to both our lifestyle, environmental factors or genetic. There are things that we can control, but many things like cosmic radiation, environmental factors, increasing pollution, lots of chemicals in food as preservatives or to increase its growth etc are beyond individual control and needs whole society to take steps to prevent this. Genetic factors are beyond our control, only thing we can do is to identify faulty gene and go for preventing measures. Since the exact cause of cancer is not understood completely, it is advisable to go for regular health screening for early diagnosis and get it treated timely for potential cure.

Likely you are having multiple fat balls (lipomas). You need to get it excised if concerned about cosmetic reason.

High fat diet, prostate cancer prone
############################
Diets high in saturated fat increase the risk of prostate cancer. As per a report from University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston published in the International Journal of Cancer:
Men who consume high saturated animal fat diet are two times more likely to experience disease progression after prostate cancer surgery than men with lower saturated fat intake.
There is also shorter "disease–free" survival time among obese men who eat high saturated fat diet compared with non–obese men consuming diets low in saturated fat.
Men with a high saturated fat intake had the shortest survival time free of prostate cancer (19 months)
Non–obese men with low fat intake survived the longest time free of the disease (46 months).
Non–obese men with high intake and obese men with low intake had "disease–free" survival of 29 and 42 months, respectively.

High saturated fat diet has been linked to cancer of the prostate
Reducing saturated fat in the diet after prostate cancer surgery can help reduce cancer progression.
Cancer prostate has the same risk factors as that of heart blockages and both are linked to high saturated fat intake.
With an increase in number of heart patients, a corresponding increase in prostate cancer patients is also seen in the society.

Vegetables and fruits contain substances that are cancer protective which junk food lacks. There is no conclusive data as to what percentage of people consuming junk food would definitely have cancer but but there is no harm in avoiding it and you can try variations with your routine healthy food to make it delicious and colorful, with fruits you can try various puddings, fruit cream, custards, with vegetables nice rolls, soups sandwiches etc. Sedentary lifestyle, fatty food are known to be risk factors for cancer.
