Am having tumour like things in my nipple, am a male, I had it so far when I was matured, and now am facing the same problem. please help me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Male breast enlargement can be benign like in gynaecomastia, due to hormonal imbalance or malignant. You must see a surgeon to exactly rule out the cause. Sometimes there can be some anatomical variation in nipple, so it could also be natural but once you must show it to a doctor.

Why Gynaecologic Laparoscopy Makes Women Smile While in Pain

M.R.C.O.G. (LONDON) Gold Medalist, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology , MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Why Gynaecologic Laparoscopy Makes Women Smile While in Pain

Why is Gynaecologic Laparoscopy so Revolutionary?

Designed to enable a surgeon to look into a woman’s pelvic or abdominal area for diagnosis or treatment, gynaecologic laparoscopy is fast gaining popularity as a minimally invasive procedure for a host of female reproductive health problems. This surgery is also commonly known as keyhole surgery.

In recent times, this form of surgery has begun to replace the conventional open surgery, as the latter poses disadvantages like greater blood loss or infection.

Depending on the purpose of the surgery, Gynaecologic Laparoscopy involves the making of one or more very small incisions (about 5mm in length) in the area that must be treated. One of the incision(or cut)s is used by the surgeon to insert a laparoscope (a lighted telescope) into your abdomen for seeing the insides of your cavity. Many surgical procedures, which were performed by making large abdominal incisions, are now being done using laparoscopy.

What are problems this surgical procedure is beneficial for?

The various health problems that it can be used to diagnose, treat or both are:

  1. Endometriosis (a condition that is characterised by the growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterus)
  2. Ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy wherein the foetus develops in the fallopian tube instead of the womb)
  3. Sterilisation (blocking of your fallopian tubes through surgery to prevent future pregnancy)
  4. Ovarian cysts (fluid-filled sacs that develop on the surface or inside an ovary)
  5. Removal of womb, also known as hysterectomy
  6. Removal of ovaries
  7. Fibroids (non-cancerous growths within or on the surface of the uterus)
  8. Gynaecologic cancers such as ovarian cancer, uterine cancer and so on
  9. Infertility
  10. Pelvic pain

What are the benefits you can expect from gynaecologic laparoscopy as opposed to open surgery?

  1. It is no more required to make large abdominal cuts that are required in traditional surgery, thereby reducing your recovery time
  2. You suffer from less pain and scarring as the incisions made are much smaller
  3. A faster return to your normal routine, usually within a few weeks
  4. Serious complications arising from this form of surgery are very rare

What do to in pregnancy first trimesters?

CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy, MRCOG, MD, DGO
Gynaecologist,
What do to in pregnancy first trimesters?
As a starting point it is important to avoid unnecessary round the counter drugs without a valid prescription as it may do potential harm. Common symptoms like nausea/ vomiting/ feeling tired can be overcome by eating a healthy and well balanced diet at frequent intervals. I also advise my patients to avoid fatty foods and have home made ones. Taking adequate rest in between work even for short periods is important. Also try and avoid activities that put pressure on your tummy and lifting heavy weight. It is also advisable not to start any new form of exercise in pregnancy. Most of the ones you are used to like swimming is acceptable. Increased frequency of urination and constipation / reflux gastritis could be problems. Best in these cases to seek medical advice.

Dental Treatment is Now Painless - 5 Reasons Why!

BDS, FICOI, MDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Dental Treatment is Now Painless - 5 Reasons Why!

A majority of us would rather undergo any form of torture than go to a dentist. There is some great news for the ones who are silently enduring their dental pains. Read on as we reveal how to get rid of your teething troubles and that too painlessly!

#1- NO MORE INJECTIONS

If the fear of a needle is what’s keeping you away from the dental office, then think again as we can now numb you with as little as just a paste, spray or solution that doesn’t require an injection for its delivery. This revolutionary new technology takes away the prick of the needle and the pressure of the liquid expanding your lips and gums, instead, the solution enters by a digitally controlled dispenser going in drop by drop making it virtually undetectable.

#2- NO MORE DRILLING

The sound of the drill can be one of the most known triggers for creating fear and anxiety in the patient's mind. When coupled with its vibrations, heat and pressure the experience it creates oscillates from unpleasant to downright unbearable. If the drill were replaced by a beam of light that can clean up decay, even the most reluctant people would open up to the experience. Once patients experience the difference they not only get the most urgent and necessary treatments done but also opt for preventive treatments.

#3-  BLADE FREE SURGERIES

If you had to undergo a dental surgery earlier you may have had to worry about blood loss, pain, swelling, stitches not to mention the countless gory images that come to mind - but fortunately not anymore ! A surgery can be completely pain-free with little or no bleeding, Immediate recovery,no stitches and no swellings having you back at work or play almost instantly.

#4- QUICK & EASY ROOT CANALS

Root canal treatment as a procedure is probably more dreaded than even extraction or removal of a tooth. The pain and fear associated with this treatment are due to the primitive way that it used to be done in earlier. Automated technologies make root canals completely painless, precise, quick and smooth in as little as just one session.

#5- RELAXING MEDICATION

If these reasons do not sound convincing enough then pain relieving and controlling drugs before or during your appointment may be the solution for you.

Great strides have been made in the field of pharmacology with medication that can block or control pain centres in the brain.

We now choose from a variety of medication ranging from oral drugs to breathing gases through a mask, that can relieve your anxiety during the procedure to a point that you no longer perceive or detect pain.

The only thing left to fear now remains a nagging toothache in the back of your mouth that you have been ignoring.

As hard as it may seem to believe, truth is, that with the best technology, great ambience, and a host of distraction techniques - a dental appointment may actually turn out to be pleasant and save you a world of pain in the future!

My wife is 46yrs old. She does not like sex at all. How can rejuvenated her?

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda,
Any changes in your hormones, especially estrogen, can pull the plug on your libido. During pregnancy, breastfeeding, and menopause your estrogen levels drop, which can result in low libido, vaginal dryness and a host of other symptoms that make sex difficult or even painful. Your doctor can prescribe certain hormonal medications and help you maintain your intimate health during these changes. Medications antidepressants (such as ssris) have a well-documented negative effect on libido and arousal, but many other medications can also be a drag on your sex life. Antihistamines and other allergy medications are vasoconstrictors, meaning they limit blood flow all over your body (including genitals), which can lower desire and make it difficult or near impossible to orgasm. Be sure to discuss each of your medications with your doctor to see if switching to a different brand helps. For treatment consult privrtly.

If you r suffering from this since long time and if it is not controlled by meftal spas and if you have to stay at home during menses because of pain, then you should get sonography done to find out the cause.
