My periods has stopped about 4 years ago. But recently my periods has started. So I made my U. S. G. The report says that - uterus is bulky and anteverted showing a rounded hypoechoic solid SOL (measuring 2.58 Cm X 2.33 cm) in fundus anteriorly and to the left. Endometrial echopattern is central and of normal thickness (5.1 mm). Uterus measures 9.09cmX4.48cm. Can I have to go through operation or medical treatment will clear the problem?

General Physician, Mumbai
Dear lybrateuser, -since there is a mass in the uterus it is causing you problems -the mass has to reduce in size which can be done by some non -invasive techniques nowadays combined with medication -if it does not show improvement then may have to be removed by surgery -consult a gynecologist on the forum.

I'm suffering from acidity problem. I feel my heart beat more at early morning. After motion and drinking water I feel comfortable heart beat. Always feel full stomach.

Diploma in Anesthesia, MBBS
General Physician, Hyderabad
All the above are due to hyperacidity. If you are constipated take some medicine for constipation and for reducing acidity, follow food discipline like avoiding spices, chillies and out side food. Take regular and timely meals and donot take full stomach keep atleat 1/4 stomach empty. Take plenty of water a minimum of 2.5 - 3 litres of water throughout the day. Take fibre containing food like cucumber, carrot etc. With each meal. Avoid execissive tea/coffee, if you are taking donot take on empty stomach. Have regular physical activity like morning walk/yoga etc. Follow these and acidity levels will be within permissible limits.

Ayurvedic medicine cover all the disease together. A ggod digestive system is always mandatory in healthy body and for healthy body. Avoid junk food, cheese, butter etc try to consume 2 glass of luke warm water daily. Take your meal on time, so that it is properly digested. We can suggest you some good ayurvedic medicine without any side effects. Consult for that.

Don't discontinue, go on with same medicine, with the same dose & try to change your diet, take fat free, salt restricted, high fiber diet, check your lipid profile every month, when your cholesterol & triglyceride will come down, then reduce the dose in consultation with a cardiologist. Last but not the least, regular exercise is essential.

Even my financial condition is not so strong but I want to conceive fast. Please help me. Very upset.

See since your one tube is blocked and the other is partially blocked. get a laproscopy test done to find out whether your tube can be opened or not. If its not opened then IVF is the only best way for you to conceive.

Alcohol In Controlled Quantity - Can It Be Good For You?

MD - Microbiology

Alcohol In Controlled Quantity - Can It Be Good For You?

For long, there have been campaigns and discussions about the harmful effects and diseases associated with alcohol consumption. In most cases, it is not the alcohol, but the quantity consumed that affects a person. Limited consumption of alcohol can, in fact, work to your advantage. Alcohol, when consumed in moderation, helps to avert, check or improve many medical conditions and health ailments.

  1. Deal with common cold effectively: According to research, the antioxidants present in wine helps to fight common cold better. Limited intake of alcohol, red wine to be precise (~1-2 glasses per day), can, thus, help to reduce the instances of common cold significantly.
  2. Weight loss made easy: Studies conducted by the Oregon State University suggest that certain varieties red wine (the Red Muscadine Wine) can play a pivotal role in weight reduction. The Red Muscadine, a variety of wine grapes used to make red wine contains ellagic acid. It is this ellagic acid that helps to cease or slow down the growth and development of the fat cells. Red wine also helps to manage fatty liver effectively.
  3. Keep cardiovascular diseases at bay: The high-density lipoprotein (HDL), also known as the Good Cholesterol is indeed good for the body. It acts as a shield, keeping the heart hale and hearty. Moderate alcohol consumption helps to elevate the level of HDL. One of the main reasons attributing to heart attacks are the small blood clots that block the arteries of the brain, heart, and neck. Alcohol (limited intake) has been able to put a check in the formation of such blood clots.
  4. Reduced instances of cognitive impairment: Reports suggest that people who consume alcohol within limits are less likely to develop dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Moderate consumption tends to make the brain cells fit and more active, thus, enabling the cells to deal with stress and other related factors.
  5. A little wine for a better libido: Limited consumption of wine is good for a better sexual life. Research indicate that the antioxidants present in wine act as a catalyst, resulting in an improved libido (lowers the incidences of erectile dysfunction in men). A little wine can work wonders for women as well (increasing their sexual desires and feelings).
  6. Enjoy a diabetes-free life: Type 2 Diabetes and the associated ailments and complications can make life miserable. However, people who consume a small quantity of alcohol (preferably 1-2 glasses per day) are at a lower risk of developing diabetes (Type 2). A path-breaking finding indeed!

People with moderate alcohol consumption are also at a lower risk of developing gallstones. The high silicone content in beer helps to strengthen the bones, but only when consumed within limits. Beer is also rich in calcium, magnesium, and vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin). If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

My bp is 130/80 doctor take me medicine stamlo 2.5 mg for last 2 month before I take medicine my bp is 150/90 so, can I stop my medicine ,my thyroid ,2d, stress test report is normal. Please give me suggestion.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine), Certified in Evidence Based Diabetes Management, MNAMS
Internal Medicine Specialist, Kolkata
Thank you for the query. Prior to starting your medication (stamlo 2.5 mg) your bp was 150/90 mm of hg. The present control of bp is probably due to your medication. If you stop it there may be a sudden shoot up. It is important to reduce your oral salt intake. Please consult your physician before taking any decision to stop the drug. Even if the medicine is stopped, your bp must be monitored to look for any rise. Regards.

I am 20 years old male one of my breast became hard and I had slight pain I consulted doctor. Said mastitis gave pain killer how to reduce that.

General Physician, Cuttack
1. Male boob is due to a medical condition called gynaecomastia which is some times seen in adolescent age group or young adults 2. It is due to elevated level of blood estrogen and decrease level of testosterone. 3. It is not serious and sometimes go away on its own otherwise has to be treated by medicine or surgery 4. It is due to excess accumulation of fat in the chest 5. Regular chest and arm exercise like dumbbell exercise and push up exercise will help reduce the gynaecomastia 6. Reduce intake of fatty food like red meat, cheese, butter, ghee, cream, whole milk etc 7. If no relief, consult surgeon for advice.

My uncle has got heart blockage even though he used to drink water in a copper cup early morning.

PGP In Diabetologist, Fellowship in non-invasive Cardiology, MD - Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Who told you that drinking water from copper cup prevents heart disease. Heart disease results from 5 factors 1) sex - more common in males, because of male hormones /aggressiveness. The benefit is lost in menopausal females too 2) genetics- having family history of heart diseases. 3) vascular diseases- like hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia, peripheral vascular disease and cardiac arrythmias. 4) lifestyle- smoking, tobacco, alcohol, sedentary lifestyle, obesity, and most importantly stress 5) thickening of blood (hypercoagulable states) - diseases of platelets, clotting factors, drugs, infections and other metabolic/disorders (less understood). So, it is necessary to go for frequent (once yearly, at least) health checks and follow a healthy lifestyle as advised by your doctor, to prevent the risk of heart diseases.

What should be eat to a low blood pressure patient. My mother has blood pressure problem. She forget anything and behave like a mad. What should eat her to control it.

Homeopath, Chennai
Low blood pressure is an abnormal condition where a person’s blood pressure (the pressure of the blood against the walls of the blood vessels during and after each beat of the heart) is much lower than usual, which can cause symptoms such as dizziness or vertigo. Conditions that reduce the volume of blood, reduce cardiac output (the amount of blood pumped by the heart), and medications are frequent causes of low blood pressure. Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat low blood pressure symptoms but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several well-proved medicines are available for the treatment of low blood pressure symptoms that can be selected on the basis of cause, condition, sensation and modalities of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment you can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance
