Alump is felt in the breast. If you cannot detect it of your own better see an oncologist who will teach you breast self examination. You may pick up the disease in very early stage and with proper treatment it will be curable.

All cysts do not change to cancer but if its reducing after some time then no need to worry. If it persists then do a fnac test to confirm. Cyst in fallopian tube can lead to problem in pregnacy but need to observe closely by usg. And if required can rescect in out before planning for pregnancy.

I'm 27 year old mother if a nine month old baby girl from Bangalore. Baby has four teeth up and two teeth down, she almost bites me 3 of 5 times when breast feeding, it pains a lot and burns next time when fed. I'm afraid whether she will bite or feed, I tried in quiet room, properly latched her, but same us repeated. Please help me to solve this issue, when I reacted for it, she made a nursing strike for one day, which was more painful than that, please help me.

Please try offering semi-solid food. Breast milk alone is unable to meet baby's requirement as the baby grows. Not offering breast if your baby bites will be a negative reinforcement and she will stop biting you while feeding.

Dear lybrate user, benign hypertrophy of prostate is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. In this clinical condition multiple nodules are formed inside the prostate gland. These nodules often compress the urethra resulting in the narrowing of the lumen of urethra & producing a resistance to the urine flow. Resistance to urine flow requires the bladder to work harder during voiding, possibly leading to progressive enlargement, instability, or weakness of the bladder muscle. Benign hypertrophy of prostate can be easily diagnosed by an usg of whole abdomen along with blood test for prostate specific antigen (psa). Follow the given medication as directed:- 1) 5 drops of homoeopathic causticum 30 at early morning daily before brushing teeth 2) 5 drops of homoeopathic conium mac 30 before going to bath daily. 3) 5 drops of homoeopathic baryta carb 30 just one hour before dinner daily. 4) homoeopathic mother tincture sabal serrulata q, 30 drops, twice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with the aforesaid medication few changes in your lifestyle are also necessary. Lifestyle alterations to address the symptoms include decreasing fluid intake before bedtime, moderating the consumption of alcohol and caffeine-containing products, and following a timed voiding schedule. Also it would be better if you could void the urine in sitting position.

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

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your friend's mother. Well, given to understand that its a last stage breast cancer, a cure may not be guaranteed at this juncture. Moreover, in advanced stage cancers, likelihood of complications developing is high and she would require palliative care support preferably in a medical / hospital setting. However, in the context that she has financial constraints, she may approach either 'Indian Cancer Society' or any other NGO or organizations (operating in the field of cancer care/ support), for help. At the same time, she can also try out integrative/ stand-alone treatment with alternative medicines which can be of help too in rendering palliative support, and treatment as would befit contextually. I declare no conflict of interest as I state the above-mentioned. Do take care and all the very best.

Unless he press, squeeze or suck very hard, no harm will come. So if you have pain or if he bruise you, you need to tell him to slow down. It is your responsibility to tell him that. If you enjoy it and it feels good, just keep it that way. It can be a lot of fun having your breasts fondled. Some women can even have an orgasm from it.

My wife is a cancer patient (osteosarcoma) her chemotherapy is completed on 25thFebruary 2016 and her period resume on June 23, 2016 and in next month is on 18th July, 2016. We have unprotected sex after 26th day is there any chances of getting pregnant or is it safe for her. please reply soon.

Diploma in Radio Therapy, MBBS
Oncologist, Chennai
Kindly perform a Pregnancy test with the Pregnancy kit that is available at any nearest medical shop. The safe period for avoiding pregnancy is usually on the Day 1 to 7 at the start of cycle and the last 4-6 days in a normal 26 to 32 days cycle. You might still be on the safe period, but pregnancy test will confirm the same. Since she is under chemotherapy, she might have difficulties to carry out a normal pregnancy. It is better to give her at least 6 months gap from the last cycle of chemo therapy before getting pregnant. Do perform the test at the earliest.

How can I identify blood cancer? What are the controlling measures to prevent this?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Blood cancer is caused by abnormal growth of one of the component of blood causing suppression of others. Hence leading to symptoms like prolonged fever, anaemia, bleeding, bone pains. Etc. There is no specific prevention except for to save from known carcinogens and undue exposure to radiation. Routine blood check up helps in identifying it.

How the cancer can be detected? How we are able to know about it. What primary precautions can be taken by us?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer is detected by clinical examination along with radiological investigations and histopathology. Sometimes some blood investigations like psa, cea, ca125 etc can be done but still they need to be supplemented with pathology. Primary precautions may be avoidance of known carcinogens and regular clinical examination.
