I am 48 years old. Had mastectomy in 2007 t1n1mo right breast. Had chemotherapy 6 cycles and 5 years of tamoxifen. A recent breast ultrasound shows some simple cysts in the left breast. What does it indicate? is there any chance of these cysts turning malignant please Advice.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Need not worry about simple cysts, only worrisome thing would be solid mass lesions esp irregular growth, microcalcification may also indicate premalignant lesion, also must do breast self examination for any obvious changes

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Kanpur
If you r of 19 years age then a nodule in breast most probably is gynecomastia. You may get a fnac done of that nodule to confirm the diagnosis. If it is indeed gynecomastia then no need to worry about although for cosmetic reasons it may be removed surgically.

Hi sir/mam I found breast lump in left breast 8 months back but there is no swelling discharge or any symptoms but pain at time of menses that's it I saw in some articles all breast lumps are not cause cancer please give me suggestion it cause any severe condition in future what precautions I should take my age is 22.

BHMS, M.D.
Homeopath, Pune
Hello Lybrate user, yes, all breast lump are not cancerous. The breast lump you have mentioned, is probably fibroadenoma, it is a benign tumor (non cancerous mass/tumor), most commonly found in women under the age of 30. Causes is unknown, although it may be due to hormone oestrogen. It is non tender (no pain on touch), motile under skin, and regular in shape (shape and edges can be felt by touch). Fibroadenoma often have tendency to reoccur even after surgically removed. L would like to suggest to visit gynaecologist, for physical examination and to confirm the diagnosis. Try homeopathic treatment, it is safe, natural and holistic way of treatment. Natural homeopathic medicines like calcerea, thuja, sep, etc.; are highly effective in naturally reducing the Benign lumps. Homeopathic medicine is selected on the basis of thorough details of patient, like medical history, causes, routine, temperament etc.; such well selected medicine gives complete cure and stops the reoccurring tendency of complaint. Message back for online consultation.

If it bleed for a patient who is suffering from throat cancer, which stage he will be into and what are the chances ?

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS, DNB (Radiotherapy)
Oncologist, Howrah
Bleeding has no effect in staging. Even patients in early stages with throat cancer can bleed. Chances depend on stage of the patient which should be established by cect of neck and laryngoscopy findings. But even locally advanced throat cancer has a good chance of survival.

Respected doctor in ref to my earlier query the CT scan report shows that actually the cancer is in area of pancreas and from that place it struck to liver and doctors has told us that it is the last stage but the patient is taking proper diet and there is not a single sign of jaundice or fever but only patient is losing the weight as he loses 22 kg in one month is there any therapy or medicine by which we can enhance their life to some extent.

Yes, in this case there is a tendency of losing weight. He needs to consume high quality proteins or supplements also if necessary to compensate with daily protein requirement as their appetite reduces. Egg whites, soya or normal milk, nutty shakes, milk or paneer porridge etc help.

I am 39 years old and a mother of 3 year old girl. I have been experiencing pain in both my breasts since last two days and feel lumps too. This happens usually before my menstrual cycle and pain and lumps fade away by the end of the periods. My periods is due in 10 days time. The pain already stared and I feel lots of lumps. Should I go for cancer screening now or wait till my periods get over?

Hi, It may be due to fibroadenosis. Start with cap primerose oil bd for 15 days (7 days before and after menstrual cycle). After that you can go for so no mammography screening.

Best way is to avoid all stale or heat causing foods or heavy foods. Also take warm water as much as possible. And exercises will alos help. Prostatic massage can be tried out. You are welcome to discuss more details in private chat.

Yes there are medications that can control your symptoms bt I aslo need to know if you hav done any usg report where the size of prostate is mentioned, if you hav diabetes or hypertension. So consult with the above mentioned information nd for necessary medications as prescribing meds in an open forum is unethical fr me. Thanks stay healthy stay happy.

DNB, MBBS

Dear mam, five to seven percent cancers may be inherited rest are due to acquired mutations Caused by some injury to genes. This genetic injury may be due to chemicals, tobacco, radiation exposure, adulterated food, viruses etc Stages of cancer means how big the tumour is and where all it has spread. Grade means the Nature and aggressiveness of disease.

Hi . It is believed that prostate enlargement in many men continues till end of life. It is therefore recommended that you continue your medications to reduce the rate of this growth. You can also discuss this with your urologist and if your prostate enlargement is very little and you have no urinary symptoms then he/she can take the decision of tapering your dose or stopping it altogether to observe for some time.

Cancer occurring in people which are not using tabacoo and alcoholic substance what's the reason behind this?

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist, Aurangabad
Tobacco and alcohol are causes of a few of many cancers. Only nails and hair don't get cancer. Rest all organs get cancers. The basic reason for a cancer is a genetic mutation that is defect in genes that either causes excess multiplication or prevent natural death of cells. Such an uncontrolled growth is cancer. Why these genetic mutations occur is difficult to decipher and no one cause can be blamed for it. But there are risk factors. Like no pregnancy or a delayed one is a risk factor for breast cancer. Infection by human papilloma virus can cause cancers of cervix, anal canal, oral cavity, etc. Exposure to radiation can cause cancers. Exposure to environmental toxins and uv rays from sun can cause cancers.
