I have been smoking regularly for 40 year, I want to get some test done to check my health and the early risk of cancer (if any). What tests should I go for?

Smoking exposes you too various types of cancer mainly being lung cancer and cancer of your aerodigestive tract. This means your lung, mouth, wind pipe, food pipe and stomach are at risk. The maximum risk is with the first two. There is also the risk of cardiac problems. I would advise you to ideally undergo a comprehensive health check for cardiac status (stress test), lung function (pft) and others. For cancer though there are no reliable tests to detect cancers early, an oral exam by the surgeon at the health check up, an endoscopy if persistent ulcer complaints and a low dose ct scan of the chest are advised in chronic smokers. (though as I mentioned earlier, none are foolproof.)

Dear, Welcome to lybrate. Low concentration is hormonal problem upto one extent. You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please search internet for "effective learning" techniques or you may consult a psychologist. Take care.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. Want to meet/speak to connect me.

Hello, I am 18 and belongs to baptized sikh community. My parents are" amritdharis" but I believe in pantheism. So my problem is that my father is very annoying because he consumes illegal drugs and dyes his hair which is against the rules of baptized sikhism. Though he thinks that" sikhism" is great than any other religion. (i am not against any religion or discouraging any other religion or faiths). He beats me, my elder sister and my mother when he didn't get his drugs. Once he had beaten my sister on her birthday very aggressively that she had serious mental issues. Doctors had said that this condition can even kill her, but my father said that this is all due to her that is my elder sister. Secondly, my father is cheap too (i don't mind by saying this because I know how he is). Whenever there something insane is coming on television, he come closer to the tv! sometimes he even record those things on his mobile. He is 8th passed and thinks that he is the most literate person. He know everything. Once I locked some english channels because he is that type of person (i hope you understand what I mean?). He said" what is the need of locking the channels. I used to watch those channels because of bhajan. Hah! he do not understand the language then how will it become his bhajan channel. Thirdly, he is very cheap person because he stares females excluding his family members. Once in our township, an indian idol among the top finalist was invited. Any my father was so excited that he asked for the no. And, as a girl or female, we have the power to sense someone's intention. The idol sensed this thing. And was so irritated with that she rushed from the hall with her family. My father ran after her. But couldn't get to the idol. Then, a friend of my great father asked him why you took the no. Of the idol? then he said that children were forcing for the no. Even everyone know about my father's nature because once he had married a woman and had a daughter too but unfortunately the baby died unexpectedly. The president of the company had given the warning to him but after this he did not changed himself or realized his deed. I am 18 years old girl and in this age temper gets high sometimes very high. Once I argued on some topic with my father and my father fought with me very aggressively because he believes in male domination. And in my school, we had been taught to fought against wrong (as because I am a humanities student). He said that i'll beat you in that way that you'll never be able to argue with me again. Sorry for taking such a long time of yours but this is my problem which I need to solve because with this I can't concentrate on my studies. Thank you.

It may not be possible to change your father. More so since he's under the influence of drugs. What I can see is your safety at stake as you wrote that he beats you. If you can take the support of your family or relatives to intervene and restrict his behavior or inform the police if you can afford to take that step. Here you need to be sure about certain consequences of push back from family and relatives, financial and home security being withdrawn from you etc. Are you in a position to shift elsewhere and someone else bears your expenses etc? you also need to know what you can change and what you cannot change. This will alone bring a lot of peace of mind for you. When he looks at women in the wrong sense, it must be embarrassing for you. But can you do anything about it? you must only learn to take care of your own anger and embarrassment at that time. Counselling will help you to tackle this situation with practical and workable solutions and reduce the emotional stress that you are going through.

Anxiety disorder is usually treated with the help of psychotherapy, counseling and life style changes. I hope this answer satisfies you. I am available for further clarifications. Take care.

It depends what mental disorder the person is suffering from, sometimes a counseling by a psychiatrist is ok to bring the patient back to normal and sometimes special attention and various tests are required to know the exact situation of the disorder, in meanwhile you can start putting 2 drops of cow ghee in each nostril of the patient, everyday. Cow ghee is the best natural medicine for not just brain patients but for everyone, and it has no side effects or expiry dates. Cow ghee reaches such places in brains where allopathic & even homeopathic medicines fails to reach. for best result make sure the cow ghee is natural. The older the ghee the best it is.
