Hii my wife have right side breast tenderness is seen like tumor but not cancer I can seen the test CA15, 3 value is 5.64 normal m technician in lab what I do please help.

Breast tenderness may occur due to infection or it may occur with menstrual cycle in some ladies. Ca15.3 is not useful in this condition. Is the tenderness localised or diffuse? if any doubt, ultrasound of breast may be done considering young age of the lady. Please review with details.

Use a regular contraception like contraceptive pills. For it to be effective you have to take them everyday. Alternatives are injections, coil or simply condoms. However whatever you choose it is important to understand that they all have failure rates and compliance is very important.

Dengue Fever - Causes, Treatment, and Management

MD
General Physician, Mumbai
Dengue Fever - Causes, Treatment, and Management

Dengue fever is a painful infection transmitted by the bite of one of the 4 closely related viruses that are carried by a type of mosquitoes known as Aedes mosquitoes. The infection is not directly from one person to another.

Symptoms: After the mosquito bite, symptoms set in about 4 to 6 days and can last up to 10 days (as noted below). Most are general symptoms which can be seen with any viral infection and therefore most dengue cases can go undetected.

  1. Sudden high temperature
  2. Pain behind the eyes
  3. Severe headache
  4. Swollen lymph nodes
  5. Severe bone and muscle pains (this can lead to suspicion of dengue)
  6. Fatigue
  7. Nausea and vomiting
  8. Skin rash that appears 3 to 5 days after the onset of fever
  9. There could be in some cases gum bleeding, easy bruising, or nose bleeding

The dengue triad of symptoms is fever, headache and the skin rash. This could lead to suspicion and blood tests that can lead to diagnosis.

The acute phase lasts for about 2 weeks in most cases and there is no antibiotic (it is a viral infection) cure for it. The treatment is therefore symptomatic, aimed at reducing fever and pains.

If left untreated, especially in children, a severe case called as Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) can occur, which affects children under 10 years of age and can cause failure of the circulatory system. This can also occur when a person is developing dengue for the second time. This is a serious form and can even lead to death; therefore the symptoms should be taken seriously and attended to immediately.

Diagnosis: Confirmation of dengue is through a blood test, where the virus is tested for.

Treatment: Being a viral infection, antibiotics are not effective against dengue. Pain killers with acetaminophen are preferred. Aspirin is avoided, as it can worsen bleeding. Complete bed rest, hydration and good nutrition are essential parts of the treatment. Being under medical supervision also helps watch out for complications. There is a vaccine under development that could become available in the next couple of years.

Prevention:

  1. Always use mosquito repellents, even indoors
  2. While being outdoors, use clothes that cover the arms and legs fully
  3. Use a mosquito net if your area is highly infested with mosquitoes
  4. Ensure the windows and doors are closed during the evening
  5. If you are suspicious of having dengue, reach out to the doctor
  6. Reduce chances for mosquitoes breeding by keeping the house clean
  7. If there are family members with dengue, protect yourself and them from mosquitoes

Preventing dengue is the best way to manage it; however, if once infected, the person develops immunity to it. Reduced immunity can put the person at risk of developing the condition again.

Hi Navdeep. Unprotected sex even if you need ejaculate inside her can lead to pregnancy specially mid cycle. Even the precum has sperms which is enough to make a woman pregnant. Hope this information has been helpful.

Am 25 years old. My wedding was on Aug 2014. My periods are irregular. We stayed together only for 4 Months continuously (December 2015 to April 2016. On May 2016 I consult a gync n ultrasound scanning report shows that I have pcod. Dr. prescribed novelon tablets. I completed one cycle. Menses occurred June 30th . But due to headache n vomiting I consulted another Dr. She prescribed APCOD Sachets, ovabless, clomiphene citrate 5 days, duphaston after 15 days. My husband had a short vacation of 25 days. But no luck this time. Menses occurred August 1st. Hus vacation too over. And he is now in Saudi Arabia. On 5th day of menses I consult Dr. She again prescribed apcod sachets, ovabless, clomiphene citrate for 5 days on 5th day onwards , orovit active too. I will be there in Saudi Arabia after 3 months with my hus. Dr. told me to take these medicines for 2 to 3 months. And to consult before going to Saudi Arabia. Is this good to continue these tablets, any side effects. Is this correct way of treatment for pcod. Suggest diet for pcod. My weight is 51 kg. Height is 5 ft 2 inch.

Hello there, 1) pcod is now called pcos. 2) pcod is caused by hormonal imbalance. 3) in pcod ovulation - rupture of follicles is restricted by hormone. 4) thus follicles are converted into ovarian cysts. 5) these cysts hijack hormones and stop menses. 6) this vicious cycle in pcod - pcos patient which leads to infertility. Scientific management of pcod - pcos by nap therapy & medicines:- 1) nap therapy medicines are non hormonal & non steroids thus very safe no side effects. 2) nap therapy medicines treatment course correct disease, root causes along its complications. 3) in 3-6 cycles most of the problem will be corrected. 4) natural ovulation will occur. 5) menses will be regular. 6) endometrium will become healthy. 7) all above factors helps to cure infertility. I strongly recommend nap therapy medicines treatment for infertility & pcod - pcos. Consult privately online-telephone-vedio or visit personally for proper management.

NOW IT IS OK It cannot be used as a regular contraceptive method and is quite unhealthy if taken more than twice a month. 3. The pill is to be taken soon after unprotected sex. It should be taken preferably within 24 hours and before 72 hours or else the pill may turn useless.

No, it will not give the correct picture. With the kit if you wanted to know the status of pregnancy you have to wait till your next period date i.e. 29 october, if no bleeding then wait for 15 days and then get the test done. Then only it can give a correct information. If you are in a hurry to know then you need to go for blood test.

If you r pregnant then bleeding will be only in the form of spotting around the day of due date for menses. As you had less than normal bleeding still it does not qualify for the bleeding of pregnancy which is called as implantation bleeding which is in the form of spotting. Still if you have doubt, you can do urine pregnancy test after 7 days.

Hello I'm asking for some help regarding cancer issues. How can we. Recognise cancer issues. My mom got breast cancer and now she getting so many problem. So how can she will be all right from breast cancer.

breast cancer if diagnosed early is generally given radio/ chemotherapy to shrink the tumour followed by surgery to remove the breast and axillary lymph nodes. It has good survival chances if treated early. Regular self breast examination to look for a lump, pain, nipple discharge/ abnormality, skin puckering helps in quick diagnosis which should be followed by timely sonography or mammogram to detect the cancer in time.

Little bit variation in periods is normal. Do not worry. Do a pregnancy test after a week if you do not get periods.
