Hi, I am a newly wed girl and my age is 26 years. I have lumps in my left breast and a small lump is emerging in right breast too. Is it normal to have lumps in breast? Will it affect my sex life and will it interfere in my fertility?

You are suffering from multiple fibroadenomas and these are likely to grow in size. You have to get all investigations done including FNA and imaging tests. Ultimately you will need to undergo surgical excision of the lumps. Please consult a surgeon for detailed advice. Fertility is not affected.

I am 50 yrs - my father recently succumbed to prostate cancer. What is your advice to prevent prostate enlargement.

General Surgeon,
I am 50 yrs - my father recently succumbed to prostate cancer. What is your advice to prevent prostate enlargement.
Prostetic enlargement is natural process of ageing. In allopathy there is no medicine to prevent enlargement uptill now. Not every enlarge prostate is cancer. But as age advances % of having prostatic cancer is more. Sometime it diagnosed after surgery when tissue send for biopsy.

Skin cancers usually presents as non healing ulcer or lump, skin discolouration or mole. Rashes may not be cancerous you must check for allergy as it is in different parts and consult dermatologist. They also can take scrapings for biopsy to know the cause of recurrent rashes.

Hi, no need to worry. These lumps are part of normal changes in the breast with age. Sometimes they may be painful especially during menses. If the lump is large or painful, it can be removed surgically. It won't turn into cancer, so don't worry. Consult a surgeon if want to get it removed. Hope this helps. Take care.

I am 29 years old female, married and have two kids. I have a solid lump in breast from five years. I keep getting an ultrasound for the same every 6 months-1 year. It has not changed. Recently, a radiologist suggested to remove it surgically. Should I consult an oncologist?

Most likely its not cancer But its better to get a FNAC (Biopsy) done. Then you can continue the same. No need to get it removed.

Hello lybrate-user, thanks for your query, pain in breast at your age is common so please do not worry too much, you may try to change the size and type of your undergarments which better suit your body type. As of the size difference if it is noticeable than you may consult a plastic surgeon who will guide you through various options available.

I have a breast lump since I was 19. It cause pain. After delivering my first child it it not causing pain any more. How much possibilities that it would be a cancerous lump?

It is highly unlikely for it be a cancer. But be watchfull for any increase in size or any elevation in rate of increase in size. Also please get breast examination done for reliably ruling out any problematic cause of the lump.
