How to reduce your risk of developing breast cancer?
Breast cancer is the now the most common cancer amongst indian women. One in 22 indian women will be affected from this cancer during their lifetime.

Adopt a healthy lifestyle to reduce your risk of getting this disease:

1. Regular exercise - at least 30 mins of exercise 4 times a week
2. Avoid smoking
3. Avoid alcohol consumption
4. Over-weight and obese individuals have a higher incidence of breast cancer. Maintain your weight in the normal range (bmi - 18-25)
8. If there is a family history of breast cancer, do consult your oncologist to discuss your risk of breast cancer. Also discuss the need to getting genetic testing.

Breast cancer can also be detected early. Remember these three simple tips:

1. Be breast aware - do regular self examinations
2. Clinical breast examination by an experienced breast surgeon after the age of 35 years (annually)
3. Regular mammograms after 40 years of age

Cancer is overgrowth of cells at a particular site in the body due the loss of control on cell growth. The symptoms are varied depending on the site and the organ involved. Foods rich in fiber, fresh fruits and vegetables and vegetarian foods and healthy hygenic living conditions may prevent cancer formation.

I am 19 years old. I took treatment for nasopharyngeal carcinoma of radiation and chemotherapy. Radiation 35 sittings in month of may-june. chemotherapy 3 cycles. From past six months I am not able to eat solid food. Salivary glands have to reactivate. Now what should I do. From when can I eat and how to reactivate my salivary glands.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Usually within two to three months time the salivary functions are regained to a great extent post treatment, however it all depends od the extent of disease and nodal status and dose of radiation to major salivary glands. Meanwhile you can try with artificial salivary preparation like mouth wet /aqwet spray to keep your mouth lubricated. You must gargle regularly and take steam inhalation to reduce inflammation. Chewing gums, sour food, chewing rubbery materials some times augments salivary secretions. Always take solid food accompanied by some liquid drinks like buttermilk, juices, water, milk etc so that it may not get stuck in throat.

chemotherapy in breast cancer depends on a lot of factors. If the patient is her 2 neu negative, then it is usually 12 sessions (some variability is present from institute to institute). If patient is her 2 neu positive, then chemo continues for one year (every three weeks).

Hi. I am a female aged 27 years and married. I am having pain on the sides of my breasts. Please suggest what needs to be done and why its happening.

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
You should go to a doctor so that you can be examined. Pain in breasts just before menstruation is common and is usually harmless. However its best to be examined before any medication is started.

How to I identity the skin cancer before it come. And is that a spreadable disease.

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
growth of the skin. It starts from cells that begin as normal skin cells and transform into those with the potential to reproduce in an out-of-control manner. Unlike other cancers, the vast majority of skin cancers have no potential to spread to other parts of the body (metastasize) and threaten your life. it does not spread to other parts of the body. no danger to lifee. thanks

All sorts of urinary disorders can be completely cured with homoeopathic medicines if properly taken as per the instructions of a qualified homoeopath either direct consultation or online. Homoeopathic medicines doesn't contain any side effects at all. No diet restrictions in homoeopathy, only coffee should avoid while taking medicines. Medicines like can notharis, apis, berberis, lycopodium, hydrangea etc are very good medicines to treat various urinary disorders according symptoms presented by the patient. Please do an ultrasound scan of abdomen and pelvis.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology
Oncologist,
Hi, darkening of the skin on the forehead is not a symptom of skin cancer. It may be due to compression over the area due to your cap or helmet etc if you use them. Please consult a skin specialist if any of the above don't apply. You nay have to use some cream or ointment for a temporary period. Hope this helps. Take care.

I had uterine cancer scare in 2015. I had undergone hysterectomy. Though all the tests were negative for cancer I have developed a fobia of cancer. I always feel sick. My stomach aches all the time. N in dreams also I always see sickness or sick people. Most of the time myself .Is this neurological disorders. I try to remain happy n keep myself busy. But subconsciously I always see myself taking medication and injections. Please advice.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Health anxiety is one of the disorders of mind. It is not neurological - it is psychological. That means, your mind finds you sick though your brain knows you are not having cancer. This kind of health anxiety is common in hypothyroidism. With whatever dose of thyronorm you are taking, please get TSH level done on your blood. With that report, please consult a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist who can treat you with psychotherapy. It needs many sessions and your co operation. All the best.
