Better to see a Surgical oncologist or a breast surgeon. They would examine you and if needed ask for an ultrasound. Pain in the breasts could be due to cyclical mastalgia, fibrocystic disease, hormonal changes due to OC pills or pregnancy, granulomatous mastitis, abscess, cysts, fat necrosis, bruising and rarely cancer. The treatment would depend upon the cause. Most common cause is cyclical mastalgia due to fibrocystic changes, which usually resolve with time. Treatment may be given if severe pain. Also pain anteriorly could be due to costichondritis which is inflammation of the rib and cartilage junction. Abscess leads to throbbing pain with redness Cyst may lead to pricking pain. Rupture of the same leads to throbbing pain. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

How do you remove the pesticides from broccoli which is very harmful and probably causes cancers?

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking guidance. Well, you can wash it thoroughly with cold water 2 to 3 times that shall remove maximum of the pesticide residues. Also, washing with 2% salt solution will help remove the pesticides. Residues remaining, if any, shall get removed during the process of cooking. The above-mentioned risk of pesticide contamination is averted significantly/ totally, if one goes for organically cultivated fruits, vegetables and foods etc all.

9 Early Warning Signs Of Ovarian Cancer!

9 Early Warning Signs Of Ovarian Cancer!

Ovarian cancer is a broad term used to describe cluster of different types of cancers occurring in a single organ i.e. ovary. It can occur at any age- from infancy till old age , even though ovarian carcinoma in younger/childhood comprises only 20% of all ovarian cancers. Majority of ovarian cancers are epithelial - arising from the covering from ovary or from the fallopian tube or the lining of the peritoneum of the abdominal cavity.

The Silent Killer:

Ovarian cancer is called a silent killer as majority of patients report any symptoms when the disease is in the advance stage. Hardly 2-3% of all ovarian cancers cause bleeding or hirsutism, thereby seeking prompt treatment. Majority of ovarian cancer occurs in peri/postmenopausal women which reflect change in interior milieu in terms of hormones.

Since the symptoms are non-specific, women tend to ignore them due to growing age/menopause. Also, mostly women normally don't consult physicians for such non-gynecological complaints, thereby further delaying the diagnosis. It is recommended that women remain involved in their overall health and keep themselves updated to report any abnormality immediately to a specialist.

The main symptoms associated with Ovarian Cancer are:

  • Bloating sensation especially after heavy meals.

  • Increasing abdominal girth (especially if no change in diet or if regularly exercising).

  • Increasing heaviness (fullness) in lower abdomen.

  • Increasing constipation.

  • Persistent Gastritis, if previously absent.

  • Inability to eat proper meal.

  • Increasing tiredness.

  • Increased frequency of urination.

  • Painful contact.

Further, if there is family history of breast/uterine/ovarian cancer in first and second degree relatives, this increases the risk of developing ovarian and breast cancer. Such females should remain vigilant for above-mentioned symptoms and should report promptly. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

I have recently successfully treated for lever lymphoma. Can you please suggest any medicine for avoiding recurring this disease. Solomon.

Dear sir lymphomas need chemotherapy depending on histopathology and immunohistochemistry and have to be on regular follow up. They may need bone marrow transplant if relapsed disease on follow up. There is no medicines for prevention.

I have white spots on my tongue. What is the percentage probability of having cancer?

PG Hom, London, BHMS

Hi going by your age, the chances of cancer are low. However if you have the habit of eating tobacco or smoking, one should not rule out the possibility. You can undergo a biopsy which will confirm if it is or isn't cancer.

Dear, sorry for the agony you are undergoing. You are legally married you can give birth to the child and simultaneously maintain contact with adoption centers and give the baby for adoption. You will not be doing any crime and also you will give good life to the baby. Many childless couples will be willing for adoption. Truly,

My aunt is 22 years old. She is married. While having breast pain a sticky fluidal (no color) discharge is coming from her left breast. Whats the reason? She is not pregnant and dnt have any babies.

This is a common compliant. Women in this age undergo changes in breast due to hormonal changes. This discharge usually changes with the menstrual cycle. If it is persisting/bloody discharge would need further evaluation with mammography/ultrasound .Or else it is self limiting.
