Most common cause of red discharge from nipple is papilloma of the duct. Not a very serious thing. But consult a surgeon as soon as possible.

Enlargement of prostate is a normal and natural phenomenon. Symptoms can be relieved with medicines for a time being but it's not for whole life.

Dear cigarette and sharab are not necessarily the cause of blood cancer. There are many more reasons of getting blood cancer the chief of which is genetic followed by some professional exposures, followed by many more causes like viral infections, exposure to dyes and chemicals, working or getting exposed to radiations and so on.

Ayurvedic Remedies for Prostate Cancer

The prostate is a small gland positioned around the urethra and is responsible for creating the fluid to be ejaculated that contains semen. Commonly described as the shape and size of a walnut, the prostate has many important functions within the male reproductive system. Reports of cancer of this organ have become very frequent. Ayurveda has very effective treatments that not only stop the spread of the cancer, but can actually cause partial or full remission.

Some Ayurvedic treatments for Prostate cancer:

  1. Haritaki and Terminalia Chebula: When mixed with honey and ghee, this medication is known to be very effective in treating anemia. However, it is also very effective in fighting tumors and cancer cells and thus is both a supplement to the body as well as fighter of illnesses.
  2. Amalaki or Emblica Officinalis: One of the most used and go to remedies within Ayurveda is amalaki which is frequently used to cure digestive problems. It is also an antioxidant and quickly drains out free radicals from within the body. This helps in cancer treatment, immunity boosting and improving metabolism.
  3. Vibhitaki or Terminalia Belerica: This is an excellent medication, which is very beneficial in purifying blood and removing toxins from the body. It is very good in increasing red blood cell count, which is very important when the body is fighting any form of cancer. Thus it is effective in the case of prostate cancer as well.
  4. Guduchi or Giloy: This medication is very good to fight calcium deficiency and is very effective at fighting infections as well. This is necessary to ensure that the body is protected while it is fighting the cancerous cells.
  5. Curcumin or Curcuma Longa: This is one of the wonder drugs being touted around as the next big thing in fighting cancer. Curcumin is the primary chemical in turmeric and is known to be very effective in the prevention of growth and spread of cancer cells.
  6. Punarnava or Boerhavia Diffusa: This is a great medication, which helps improve blood flow to and from the kidneys and also helps in increasing the count of red blood cells. All these properties make this particular species of flowering plant an absolute master when it comes to preventing prostate cancer.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a ayurveda and ask a free question.

For past few months I am facing problem in my left breast, it pains specially in night. And also there is kind of knot in my breast. Help me.

Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear mam, if you have found a lump in your breast, it should be evaluated by a clinician to ascertain the same and if indicated then ultrasound or mammography can be done and needle aspiration if required. Breast pain is usual if your periods are nearing due to inflammation or swelling of breast due to hormonal changes and you can do fomentation and take some pain killer for temporary period also vitamin e supplement some times help.

Respected lybrate-userhi clearly understand that for prostate problem there is no course of medicine for certain months & then it's over. Depending on symptoms you have to continue certain medicines for lifetime that will withhold or slow down progress of prostate it's not going to melt your prostate size completely. If your symptoms are controlled by medicines continue medicines surgery is not hard & fast at all & if you r not recovering good extent with medicines or you don't want to continue medi then go for surgery choice is yours dear thanks regards.

Prostatitis treatments vary depending on the underlying cause. They can include: Antibiotics. This is the most commonly prescribed treatment for prostatitis. Your doctor will base the choice of medication on the type of bacteria that may be causing your infection. If you have severe symptoms, you may need intravenous (IV) antibiotics. You'll likely need to take oral antibiotics for four to six weeks but may need longer treatment for chronic or recurring prostatitis. Alpha blockers. These medications help relax the bladder neck and the muscle fibers where your prostate joins your bladder. This treatment may lessen symptoms, such as painful urination. Anti-inflammatory agents. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may make you more comfortable. Prostate massage. This is done by your physician using a lubricated, gloved finger — a procedure similar to a digital rectal exam. It may provide some symptom relief, but doctors disagree about how effective it is. Other treatments. Other potential treatments for prostatitis are being studied. These treatments include heat therapy with a microwave device and drugs based on certain plant extracts

Brava and differential fat grafting should be a good option giving you long lasting results with multiple benefits. A little time taking but worth it.

It's been 3 months my mother diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Now planning for surgery, before it what test should be done and can we also look for immunotherapy for it.

Treatment for stage 3 is neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery followed by adjuvant chemotherapy. Cytoreductive surgery is the main component and should be done optimally. If optimal cytoreductive surgery is not done rest of the treatment is also not very helpful.

I am a 36 years old I want to know that if it is possible to cure any cancer and which medicine it is and what precaution should be taken while someone is in cancer ?

M.H.C.T.C
Oncologist, Pune
Though a common consesus is that there is no cure-as they are lately diagnosed, few canceres if detected when they are not spread beyond the local boundries-are curable-if localized. Currently the practiced science has limitations -and is trying to evolve the curative treatment-which is not currently available-those available are all-managable where a relief from its painful or destructive damages could be given and life could be prolonged. But with advanced therapies at my clinic-we have been successful in giving relief by regression of the advanced, metastatic cancers. If you need any help please feel free for more free advise to your cancerous patients. Thnks. Wellcome for more queries for free.

I do not think antibiotics has anything to do with your symptoms of fatigue, weakness, etc. Although the disease itself may cause such symptoms. Pls maintain a proper diet and if needed you may take multivitamins.

Am I more at risk to cancer if my relatives have cancer? What are the stages of cancer? What are the symptoms of cancer?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, cancer is usually caused by some mutations or change in genes, which is mostly due to some injury by chemicals, pollution, tobacco etc. About 5-7%cancers may be inherited from one generation to other. So there are only few types of cancers that may be inherited so don't worry. Cancer is staged according to size and it's spread. Usually there are four stages, fourth stage is when tumour spread to other organs apart from one they originated from. Cancer may present as lump, ulceration, abnormal bleeding, weight loss, altered bowel habits etc. Depending on the organ effected.
