Can Inverted Nipples be a Sign of Breast Cancer?

Doctor of Medicine, DGO
Gynaecologist,
Can Inverted Nipples be a Sign of Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is a type of a cancerous infection that develops in the skin cells of the breast. This condition is more commonly diagnosed after you have skin cancer and is more common in women than men. There are certain signs to identify this disease, which are as follows.

1. Breast lumps - Lumps are patches of skin that occur due to the thickening and swelling of the skin. Breast lumps is a very common phenomenon for women but that does not always lead to a breast cancer; however, frequent and reoccurring instances of the same increases the risk of breast cancer. A breast lump is easily identifiable through the naked eye as it looks different from the surrounding tissues.

2. Blood discharges - The nipple is one of the most sensitive areas in the human body. In case of women, it is meant to emit milk during pregnancy, in order to feed the infant externally. A probable symptom of breast cancer can also be a frequent discharge of blood from the nipple without any visible damage or injury.

3. Breast changes - If you are experiencing any visible changes in the size, appearance or shape of the breast, then it is an indicative sign that you may have breast cancer. Thus, it is of paramount importance that you observe, touch and physically examine your breast regularly for changes. If there is any major change detected then it is advisable to consult a doctor.

4. Inverted nipple - The tip of the nipple is generally bulging and pointing outwards both in cases of men and women. But sometimes the tip of the nipple is pushed inside due to excessive suction caused by the skin tissues present inside the breast around the nipple area. This suction forces the nipple to grow inwards which is abnormal and might harm the breast and skin in various ways.

However, apart from these main symptoms, some other signs are also there that increase your chances of being diagnosed with breast cancer. They are redness or pitting of the skin over your breast like an orange, peeling or scaling of the pigmented area around the nipple, dimpling of the skin on the breasts, and such others.

Buckwheat (Kuttu) Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - कूटू के फायदे और नुकसान

कूटू का वैज्ञानिक नाम फैगोपाईरम एस्कुलेंटम है. त्रिभुज की आकृति जैसा दिखने वाला कूटू गेहूं के समान ही होता है. भारत में कूटू की उपज हिमालय क्षेत्रों में ही की जाती है. कूटू का इस्तेमाल व्रतों या त्योहारों में विशेषरूप से सबसे ज्यादा किया जाता है. भारत में ये हिमालय के तराई क्षेत्रों में ही उगाया जाता है. दुनिया के अन्य देशों में चीन, रूस, कजाकिस्तान, यूक्रेन आदि में भी कूटू की उपज होती है. व्रत में इस्तेमाल किए जाने का मुख्य कारण कूटू का ऊर्जा में निहित ऊर्जा का महत्वपूर्ण स्रोत है.

कूटू लस से मुक्त होता है जिसके कारण यह गेहूं और राई का सबसे बेहतर विकल्प माना जा सकता है. जिन लोगों को गेहूं से एलर्जी होती है उनके लिए तो यह एक बेहतर विकल्प होता है. कूटू में पाए जाने वाले खनिज पदार्थों और पोषक तत्वों में मैग्नीशियम फाइबर लोहा और प्रोटीन प्रमुख है. इसके अलावा इसमें 8 तरह के एमिनो एसिड पाया जाता है. आइए कूटू के फायदे और नुकसान के बारे में जानें.

1. हड्डियों के लिए
कूटू का उपयोग हम हड्डियों को स्वस्थ रखने के लिए कर सकते हैं. क्योंकि कूटू में मैग्नीशियम कैल्शियम और फास्फोरस आदि की प्रचुरता होती है. इसके अलावा कूटू हमारे शरीर में ऊतकों के विकास में भी काफी सहायक साबित होता है. इससे ऑस्टियोपोरोसिस और गठिया जैसी बीमारियों को दूर करने में भी काफी मदद मिलती है.
2. शुगर के उपचार में
कूटू में टैनिन नाम का एक एंजाइम पाया जाता है. यह शरीर से स्टार्च के अवशोषण को रोकता है. इसके अलावा इंसुलिन एवं ग्लूकोज के स्तर को भी नियंत्रित करता है. जिससे शुगर के मरीजों के ग्लूकोज के स्तर में निरंतरता बनी रहती है. यानी ग्लूकोज के स्तर का बढ़ना यह घटना रुक जाता है.
3. ह्रदय से संबंधित विकारों में
फाइबर से समृद्ध कूटू हमारे हृदय को स्वस्थ रखने में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाता है. क्योंकि इसमें पाया जाने वाला फाइबर हमारे शरीर से खराब कोलेस्ट्रॉल को दूर करने में सहायक होता है. इससे हमारे हृदय को स्वस्थ बने रहने में मदद मिलती है. कूटू के सेवन से धमनियों को सख्त होने और दिल के दौरे एवं स्ट्रोक जैसी स्थितियों से भी निजात पा सकते हैं.
4. पाचन तंत्र के लिए
कूटू में पाई जाने वाली फाइबर की भरपूर मात्रा हमारे शरीर के पाचन तंत्र को भी दुरुस्त करने का काम करती है. दिन में एक बार कूटू के सेवन से हमें पूरे दिन का लगभग 48 प्रतिशत फाइबर प्राप्त हो जाता है. इससे हमारे पाचन तंत्र को तेजी से काम करने में मदद मिलती है. पेट से संबंधित तमाम बीमारियां जैसे सूजन, कब्ज, पेट में दर्द, गैस, दस्त आदि से छुटकारा मिलता है.
5. कैंसर के उपचार में
कूटू का चोकर एंटीऑक्सीडेंट्स का समृद्ध स्रोत है. इसमें पाए जाने वाले एंटीऑक्सीडेंट्स कैंसर होने की संभावना को काफी हद तक कम करते हैं. क्योंकि एंटीऑक्सीडेंट्स हमारे शरीर में फ्री रेडिकल्स के प्रभाव को खत्म करके कोशिकाओं को पुनर्जीवन देने का काम करते हैं.
6. गेहूं के विकल्प के रूप में
कई लोगों को गेहूं खाने से एलर्जी की समस्या आने लगती है. ऐसे में लोगों लोग गेहूं के विकल्प के रूप में कूटू का इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं. इसके इस्तेमाल से आप सूजन, मतली और जठार तंत्र संबंधी समस्याओं से भी छुटकारा पा सकते हैं.
7. उर्जा को बनाए रखने में
कूटू का नियमित सेवन हमारे शरीर में ऊर्जा के स्तर को लगातार बनाए रखता है. क्योंकि कूटू में नियत से या विटामिन बी 3 पाया जाता है. जो कि भोजन को ऊर्जा में परिवर्तित करके शरीर तक पहुंचाता है. यही नहीं यह कई पोषक तत्वों को ऊर्जा में बदल कर शरीर में उर्जा के स्तर को बनाए रखता है.
8. मोटापा कम करने में
कूटू का नियमित सेवन मोटापा कम कम करने वाले व्यक्तियों के लिए काफी लाभदायक होता है. कूटू में पाया जाने वाला फाइबर भूख को नियंत्रित करता है. जिससे कि आपको जल्दी जल्दी भूख नहीं लगती है. इसके अलावा इसमें अन्य पोषक तत्वों की भी मौजूदगी होती है.
9. लाल रक्त कोशिकाओं की वृद्धि में
कूटू में पाए जाने वाले खनिज पदार्थों में मैग्नीशियम और कैल्शियम भी होते हैं. इसके अलावा इसमें कॉपर और आयरन भी पाए जाते हैं. जो कि हमारे शरीर में एनीमिया की संभावना को खत्म करते हैं. शरीर में पर्याप्त मात्रा में कॉपर और आयरन की मौजूदगी हमारे रक्त में लाल रक्त कोशिकाओं के निर्माण को बढ़ाते हैं. जिससे हमारा रक्त संचरण में मदद मिलती है.

कूटू के नुकसान

  • जिन्हें इससे एलर्जी है वो लोग कूटू का सेवन न करें.
  • ज्यादा पुराने कूटू के आटे का प्रयोग करने से समस्या हो सकती है.
  • अधिक मात्रा में कूटू के सेवन से बचें.

Everyone Wants Instantaneous Relief

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
Everyone Wants Instantaneous Relief

According to Ayurvedic medicine, a natural system of healing that began in India 3,000 years ago and is still heavily utilized in that country, the body is not just flesh and bones, but a complex electrical system. While most people in the U.S. may not be familiar with it, thankfully we have people like Deepak Chopra, who bring us a wealth of information from every corner of the wellness world. Deepak tells us that the human body has over 70,000 circuits. Sounds unbelievable, right? But think about it: when a person's heart stops, the doctors apply electrodes to jumpstart it - that's because the heart is electrical, just like the rest of the body. In my own clinical practice, I have discovered a few circuits that can be activated to prevent disturbances.

Typically, natural healing is a slower process than the pharmaceutical approach of primarily controlling symptoms. While taking medication you may experience quick relief, yet the underlying cause is rarely addressed. Natural healing (including Ayurvedic medicine), focuses on balancing the mind, body and spirit, which can sometimes take longer; however, there are times in natural healing when instant relief does happen. I know because I treat four conditions - kidney stones, painful intercourse, jet lag, and natural flu protection - that regularly fall into that category. Occasionally, it may take two or three sessions to get results.

Kidney Stones

Anyone who has experienced kidney stones will tell you it is one of the most painful things imaginable. Most stones form due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors, including high calcium levels in the urine, obesity, certain foods, some medications, calcium supplements, gout and not drinking enough fluids. Once stones have formed they can be very difficult to get rid of - many people have to have lithotripsies, during which shock waves are used to "blast" the stones to bits, or even more invasive kidney surgery to remove them. I help them avoid all that with a natural energetic adjustment. Again, this may sound like hocus pocus, but I have several patients who after receiving this treatment did not experience kidney stones again, even after twenty years! I'm not treating kidney stones, but preventing it from occurring. It is also possible to prevent gallstones with a similar procedure.

Painful Intercourse

Every once in a while, a female patient confides in me that she experiences painful sex. My first question for her is, "Have you ruled out any medical problems?" The most common reasons that women have discomfort during sex include infections; trauma or tissue injury; anatomic variations; hormonal imbalance; bladder irritation or interstitial cystitis; vulvodynia (chronic pain with an unknown cause); cancer or pelvic mass; and vaginal dryness. However, painful sex can also be rooted in the emotions, such as fear of pain or injury, feelings of guilt or shame, and fear of pregnancy. If the patient's gynecologist has told her that there is no physiological reason for the discomfort, I offer my help. My approach is to release any underlying negative feeling associated with intercourse. There is "no talking it out" - just a pinpoint emotional adjustment. Usually it takes just one session to eliminate any unpleasant sexual memory or feeling.

The Drag of Jet Lag

Many people, after flying cross-country, to or from Europe, or anywhere where they cross time zones experience the unpleasantness known as jet lag. Symptoms include daytime sleepiness, irritability and digestive discomfort, and it can be enough to make someone dread their next vacation. Physicians say it's a disruption of the Circadian rhythm; I say it's a disruption in their electromagnetic energy field, and I do a polarity-based treatment that prevents it, usually in a single session.

Preventing the Flu Naturally

Each year everyone from our doctors and families, coworkers and Big Pharma encourages us to get the flu shot. We see commercials for it 'round the clock, and every pharmacy we pass has a large sign offering flu protection. No one wants to get the flu, but is it really worth getting injected with a vaccine that contains mercury? It never ceases to amaze me that pregnant women are told to avoid tuna and other fish because they contain mercury, then are advised to get a flu shot that injects the same neurotoxin right into their bloodstream! I offer natural protection for influenza that, in a single session, ensures the patient's bioenergy is like "Teflon" to the flu. This treatment works like a charm and is 100% mercury-free!

fIf these treatments sound unbelievable to you, you are not alone. After all, we live in a culture that still pushes pharmaceutical and surgical fixes for the smallest ailments to the most serious illnesses. The energy systems of the body remain a mystery, even to those who, like me, have been studying them for years. But to my patients whose quality of life has drastically improved, these treatments are nothing short of miraculous.

Chances of pregnancy are very minimal, so in case you do not get your periods you can do a urine pregnancy test to clear doubts on pregnancy.

How To Get Pregnant Even If A Woman Has PCOS?

How To Get Pregnant Even If A Woman Has PCOS?


Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a typical female endocrine issue and is one of the main reasons behind infertility. Regardless of the possibility that you have PCOS, you can get pregnant naturally after receiving proper treatment.

Females who have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome have a tendency to become obese and they stop ovulating (anovulation) as well. This can result in irregular or zero menstrual cycles. To determine the illness, a pelvic ultrasound is done that uncovers ovaries containing numerous small cysts.

No need to worry! Even if you're suffering from PCOS, a lot of things can be done to raise the possibility of conceiving naturally. Here are a few tips that can help you to pregnant easily.

Tip #1 - Get In Shape! Lose Excess Weight

If you're obese, then losing some weight should be first and foremost step. One research demonstrated that losing as meagre as 5% of your body weight can enhance your odds of conceiving without any need of medical supervision.

Tip #2 - Eat Cinnamon Regularly

Cinnamon spice has the power to enhance your insulin resistance. A recent study demonstrated that females with PCOS who ate a 1 gram of cinnamon a day fundamentally enhanced their insulin resistance power within two months. Different researches have demonstrated that regular utilization of cinnamon assisted in slow digestion, which would direct the increase of glucose levels after eating.

Tip #3 - Eat Some Millet

Many people have simply no idea what millet is. It is a whole grain that is wheat and gluten free and found in a store or marketplace near your home. It has often been termed as the 'fertility wonder grain'. Since it enables to adjust glucose and insulin levels, it can assist to keep your hormones in balance. However, you need to be extra careful before consuming it, since millet is known to contain a compound that meddles with the production of thyroid hormones. Therefore, if you've a thyroid condition, then you'll need to exchange millet with different other grains.

Tip #4 - Stay Away From Too Much Carbohydrate

Avoid carbohydrates such as white bread and other processed food items made of white flour and sugar since they trigger an insulin reaction. Rather, include complex carbohydrates, for example, whole grain items, beans or green vegetables in your diet. Consult renowned gynecologists and get a proper food chart of food items that you've to eat to stay healthy.

Tip #5 - Exercise Regularly

Increase your physical activity to at least 4 to 6 hours every week spread over various days. Studies have demonstrated that this level of activity alongside sensible eating can enhance the quality of hormone in females with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. This is credited to a reduction in the amount of fat around the stomach, which may enhance insulin sensitivity and thus re-establish natural menstrual cycle.

Comprehensive Fertility Assessment - Bring Home Love, Life and Happiness

Getting married, having children, living the family life is an age-old phenomenon dating back to the mythological era. It's almost every married couple's dream to complete the picture with offspring of their own. It has also become a social status of sorts especially in a country like ours where the people are united by cast, color, creed and religion. The religious beliefs have often led to some couples facing the wrath of the society for no fault of their own simply because they had no offspring. There are many stories in Indian mythology that point to surrogacy, artificial insemination in ways that are a little difficult to believe. A man stood validated as, upon siring a male child. Such was the thinking in the mythological times.

  • The problem of no offspring lay in the fact that sometimes nature had other plans in store, sometimes destiny dictated otherwise. Sometimes health issues prevented the couple from being able to conceive. In the olden days, they would have faced a lot of acrimony from friends, relatives and generally people at large, the lady in question would be branded all sorts of names simply because she is unable to have a child, the men too would face dissent. In the late 19th and for quite a while in the 20th century, society had formed some peculiarities which almost penalized the couples unable to have children in many ways, some under the guise of advice and others on their face. It was a social issue.
  • But as with all things scientific and technological, Medicine too was one field which saw giant strides in the study and cure of the human body. Naturally babies, birth and conception too came under its purview. When the first test tube baby was born, the world knew they had found a solution to this problem too. Now couples could consider a Test Tube Baby Center and an Infertility Specialist to help them fulfill their dream.
  • Specialists offer couples a comprehensive fertility assessment session wherein they analysis the reasons and the medical issues behind their inability to conceive. The assessment involves learning about the medical history, conducting tests and procedures that help identify and isolate the problem. Sometimes a small surgery is all that is needed to resolve the problem. With some, it may be just a matter of getting the system to work the way it should and conception can happen naturally. It's case dependent.
  • As with all things new, this concept too saw its own share of doubts and misconceptions, its own share of biased opinions, some even threw it under the scanner for "tampering with nature". Many uneducated elders thought that this was the work of evil forces and children born of this method were the "devils incarnate". People's religious beliefs created a lot of fear among couples who felt that this was the best option for them. It was with trepidation that they would think of approaching a Test tube baby Center to help them have a family.
  • This is a place where all the facilities are under one roof. They conduct their own tests and procedures which gives the Infertility Specialist a clear and unhampered result. Now along with a urology specialist, they can narrow down the problem areas and start treatment accordingly.

5 Reasons Your Period Is Lighter Than Usual

5 Reasons Your Period Is Lighter Than Usual


Getting your period isn't exactly the most desirable biological process of life. But a lighter than normal period, can throw you off and make you start worrying about all the possible things that can be wrong with you. Even though every girl has her individual menstrual cycle, an average cycle should have a duration anywhere between three to seven days.

But when you don't expel the average amount of fluid (30 to 80 ml) and your cycle lasts only two days, it's a general indication of a problem. If your period lasts for two days you should consult a gynaecologist and buy preventive health check-up online. There are actually a few common reasons your period is light.

Here are five discussed below:

1. Hormone Imbalance 
Estrogen and progesterone are the hormone duo that are largely the reason for orchestration of the menstrual cycle. The dip and rise in these two hormones can make your cycle a rollercoaster ride. When your hormones are unstable, your menstrual gets altered.

For instance, estrogen is in charge of the uterus lining. So, if your hormone levels are lower your uterus lining may not thicken enough for you to have a normal full period cycle. Also, having a high level of testosterone can also lead to a scanty period.

2. Birth control 
When people are on hormonal birth control, a side effect you might suffer from is a lighter period or even goes away. This is actually a commonly discussed "perk" of long-acting reversible contraception option, like the IUD or implant. The reason for this is often attributed to endometrial atrophy, which is when your uterine lining gets thinner gradually.

3. Stress 
Stress is a major risk factor to many reproductive health issues. If you are stressed, your body releases two hormones, cortisol and adrenal. Both these chemicals upset the stability of other hormones, even the ones responsible for the reproductive system.

Cortisol impacts the production of both estrogen and progesterone your body produces. So, if you are stressed and your body is flooded with cortisol, you might experience light period, late or no period.

4. Underweight 
Your body requires needs a specific amount of fat to be able to menstruate normally. This makes total sense in an evolutionary viewpoint, since your body should be the focus on its own health first. A low body weight can cause your menstrual cycle to diminish or even pause for some time. Light periods are also a result of an extreme weight loss, or eating disorders.

5. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome 
Another common reason why your period might be scanty is PCOS. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome for the endocrine system that causes hormone to get imbalanced. If you have this syndrome, you may be prone to small cysts forming on your ovaries which can cause the instability of hormones leading to excess hair, obesity, acne, and scanty periods. In addition to scanty periods you might even experience other symptoms, which you have to ask your doctor for ovarian cysts.
