Nothing posted by this doctor yet. Here are some posts by similar doctors.

My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 years ago, with stage1 (2.2cm). Her nodes were clean. After complete breast surgery she was given chemo. Now at the same time, there was a lump of 5 mm on lower left lung which has now grown to 1.1cm. Doctor has taken that out now. Now the histopathology of the tissue is concluded at metastatic breast cancer. My question if the old tumor was removed at a stage 1, how come it had spread to lung? Metastatic takes place in stage3 /4. Is it possible the biopsy is wrong? What should we do here?

Please see a surgeon. You need an Ultrasound of the breasts. You probably have Fibroadenosis only-your history is typlical. Please apply Xylocaine Jelly 2 percent on the breast when you have pain. Nothing else to be done.

Blood cancer is a wide term and includes various types of leukemias. The common symptoms include repeated infections and severe weakness. Some may have enlarged spleen causing a swelling in left side of upper abdomen. Due to reduced platelets, there may be bleeding from different parts of the body including bleeding from nose and with stool. Hemoglobin is usually reduced severely.

Hi lybrate-user anxiety is typical to treat. Never jump on conclusion, nose bleed can as not be common in various illness. Cancer symptoms are depends upon the age, addiction, cancer causing habitat, family history site, type, grade, involvement, it may show, fever/bleeding from site/watery discharge /pain/tenderness/swelling/normal or abnormal growth/bony pain/local pain/ local lymph node swelling etc etc. But it should conform by doctors and by required examinations only.

Enlarged prostate per se does not need treatment unless you have symptoms due to it. Prostate enlargement with age occurs due to hyperplasia of the prostate gland which is benign in nature. However due to mass effect (size effect) it may produce symptoms of various intensity. Symptoms may range from frequency, urgency, nocturnal awakening, hesitancy etc.

Dear mam , breast cancer patients, post surgery may develop lymphodema or swelling of limb. One has to do regular exercises of arm as advised by physiotherapists to overcome this. Apart from this you may need to wear arm stockings for a long periods. Generally cancer hospitals do have lymphodema clinics to assist in exercises and if needed they can use lymphodema pumps mobilise the lymph and reduce swelling.

Sir, I feel sudden breast discharge and after bilateral usg it is diagnosed that I have fibroadenosis in my breast which is almost 2 years, Initially doctor prescribed me Cap primosa 1000 O. D for 3 months, Evion 400mg for 3 weeks and Tab pyricontin for 1 month. Now, breast discharge is very rare and occasionally feel little pain mainly before period. Now, I am 43 years and also the patient of mental depression, GERD and P. C. O. S.O. D. What treatment/ medicine I have to take now, Sir.

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Pune
Fibroadenosis is known to have a periodic fluctuation in size of the lumpish feel. At your age it is important to rule out other causes of nipple discharge. If you have family history of breast cancer in first degree relatives, please see a surgeon at the earliest.

I'm get two times for seizures In the mid night. One is three years back. Consulting the doctor using 3 months medicines. And now recently is got another one. Mid night time. Same I'm consulted again he was told that continue using medicine for life long I am using Levi pill 500mg tablets. Every day night. In scanning reports a small rounded non enhancing lesion with peripheral hyper dense rim with few tiny calcification and central heterogeneous Isodense area of 8mm noted in the right frontal cortical region with minimal perilesional edema -s/o likely healing granuloma rest of all OK normal.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, probably the non enhancing lesions may be the cause Of seizures. Most likely those lesions may be tuberculoma or neurocysticercosis. And you would require treatment for that also. Please consult and be in contact with neurologist for the same. Low chances of metastases also may be there but most likely it would be infections and will require treatment for that.

Cancer Symptoms Men Ignore

1. Problems When You Pee
Many men have some problems peeing as they get older, like:
A need to pee more often, especially at night
Dribbling, leaking, or an urgent need to go
Trouble starting to pee, or a weak stream
An enlarged prostate gland usually causes these symptoms, but so can prostate cancer. See your doctor to check on the cause of the problem. He?ll give you an exam to look for an enlarged prostate, and he may talk to you about a blood test (called a PSA test) for prostate cancer.

2. Changes in Your Testicles
"If you notice a lump, heaviness, or any other change in your testicle, never delay having it looked at.
"Unlike prostate cancer, which grows slowly, testicular cancer can take off overnight" Your doctor will look for any problems with a physical exam, blood tests, and an ultrasound of your scrotum.

3. Blood in Your Pee or Stool
These can be among the first signs of cancer of the bladder, kidneys, or colon. It's a good idea to see your doctor for any bleeding that?s not normal, even if you don't have other symptoms,
Although you're more likely to have a problem that's not cancer, like haemorrhoids or a urinary infection, it's important to find and treat the cause.

4) Breast Changes
"Men tend to ignore breast lumps because breast cancer isn't on their radar"
"But 1% of all breast cancers occur in men, although they're usually diagnosed much later" Don?t take any chances. If you find a lump, tell your doctor and have it checked.
