I have a small pricking pain in my left armpit connected to my breast tissue but both my breast is soft if I press then I feel pain my breast is sagging what good bra I should wear please give me perfect answer by experts.

Hello mam. The small pricking pain can be anything from a small folliculitis to an infected sebaceous cyst etc. Its always better to get it examined before coming to any decision. The sagging of the breast however is a concern which many women at >35 years of age experience due to the hormonal effects from the child birth and breastfeeding. A regular normal fitting bra (neither too loose, nor tight) from the exact body measurements and the use of sports bra during any exercises or jogging should help in preventing further sagging of the breasts. The breast lift procedure can help you in getting a well shaped lifted breasts, which will look good in any kind of dress. You can contact me for any more details.

Sir doctors have done recently breast cancer surgery. My question is, can cancer can be completely cured by chemotherapy. Or only stops growing cancer cells?

MS, DNB (Surgical Oncology)
Oncologist, Jodhpur
Hello Mr. lybrate-user, The cure is based on the stage and their molecular profile and patients profile etc. So talking about cure without much information is misleading. I Understand with your question is that probably she is having early stage disease and underwent surgery already. Now the Oncologist is advising for Chemoth. This form of chemotherapy is given with the intention to address the microscopic cancer cells in the body and chemo drugs will kill cancer cells. I hope it should help you understand the matter. But please provide complete details than only one can talk in depth. Good luck.

Cancer - 6 Ways To Help You Manage Your Condition!

Cancer - 6 Ways To Help You Manage Your Condition!

We live in an age where every single individual, more or less, is exposed to the risk of cancer. It is probably an unfavorable lifestyle we lead that deprives us of good health. This might alarm many but considerable changes in lifestyle can help you realize cancer as a preventable disease. Cancer does not only make you undergo severe suffering but it also affects your friends and family. The pallor of misery spreads wider than you think.

  1. Abstain from tobacco: Consuming raw tobacco or smoking tobacco can be equally detrimental to your health. Tobacco increases your chances of contracting the disease. As is known, passive smoking can also affect your health adversely. Tobacco can be the potential cause behind cancer of the mouth, throat, larynx, lungs, oral cavity and even the pancreas. It might harm your kidneys and cervix. It is upon you to quit tobacco at the earliest possible. One should also try and persuade friends and relatives to give up smoking.
  2. Drink alcohol in moderation: Complete abstinence from alcohol might not be possible if you have already been ushered into your work- life. The society might require you to be an occasional drinker. It is important to drink in moderation. Crossing the limit can propel consequences as serious as cancer of the stomach, pancreas, liver and the heart.
  3. A balanced and nutritious dietDeciding on a plant- based diet or a Mediterranean diet can aid your fight against the risk of cancer. A Mediterranean diet will involve green leafy vegetables, lots of fresh fruits, whole grains, mixed nuts, legumes and also the use of extra- virgin olive oil. Fish can be a safe bet but red meat should be avoided. One must also try to avoid processed meat as they tend to make you prone to the risk of cancer.
  4. Immunization: Hepatitis B and HPV or Human papilloma virus vaccines are extremely necessary to protect you against the sexually transmitted types of cancer.
  5. Sun protection: Caring for your skin doesn't arise from vanity. Skin cancer is one of the most prevalent kinds of cancer; the chances of this disease can be restricted by remaining in shade especially during midday, by wearing covered clothes and by using a good sunscreen lotion repeatedly while outside.
  6. Exercise diligently: Did you think it was okay to have weaker muscles and bulging layers of fat? If yes, you probably have grown numb to the inadequacies you face in result. Unchecked fat can lead to obesity which further complicates health conditions. Metabolic activity differs from person to person. Regular exercising can help regulate metabolism according to the needs of your body. Physical exercise protects you against the risk of breast and colon cancer. Moderate or vigorous physical activity for 150 to 75 minutes a week respectively can reduce the risk of cancer.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
