Dear, it is hormonal change at your age. Possibly you might be getting more pain during menstruation. If there is no discharge from the nipple and there are no signs of inflamation on your breast, needs only observation and a n analgesic for the symptomatic relief.

Dear doctor, I am a 61 yrs old male and have been diagnosed with prostate enlargement leading to frequent urination problem. I have been told to go for surgery. Is there any non surgical treatment either in allopathy or any alternative system of medicine? is there a risk of developing prostate cancer by undergoing surgery. Thanks in advance for your reply.

Prostate enlargment is generally benign condition common in your age group. Their are medications such as tamsulosin which will give you relief but overgrown prostate is treated surgically and their is no risk of prostate cancer by undergoing surgery.

I am Aslam aged 60. My prostate is enlarged in size and measures 4.1*4.4*3.9cm vol 36.9cc Impression: prostatomegaly bilateral large simple renal cortical cyst what should I do?

Dear your scan reports mention prostatomegaly approx 37 cc with bilateral large simple renal cyst. Firstly, treatment of prostate enlargement depends on your symptoms. If you don't have any urinary complaints you may not require treatment at all or if they are mild can be treated with medicines. If moderate to severe, surgery might be required. Secondly, I would like to know the size of renal cyst even though if they are simple. As such for simple cyst no active treatment is required.

My grand mother was died of colon cancer recently. At the age of 60 cancer was diagnosed. My grandmother's mother hadn't suffered from cancer. And my grandmother was very active upto her 50's. Later she suffered from constipation for 1 month. And had a swelling near urinary tract. It was removed by doctors. After few month we again had a scanning to her. Later reports showed that she had colon cancer and it was in final stage. This makes me thinks that my grandmother cancer was not hereditary. My question was in such case is there chance of having cancer to my mother. She was a second child. First child was a boy. And tell me the symptoms of cancer in initial stage.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology
Oncologist, Hyderabad
Cancers can be called hereditary only if at least two first degree relatives are diagnosed with cancer, especially if they are diagnosed at a younger age. Regarding your grand mother she is the first person to have cancer in the family, that too at the age of 60yrs. It is very unlikely to be hereditary. However persons with a 1st degree relative with cancer have a slightly higher risk of cancer when compared to the general population.

I'm having pain in both my breast and feel a lump in them. I can feel a paining lump in my armpit too. I have had a tuberculosis test and same symptoms wen I was about 8 yrs. It cured later. What to do.

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Sri Ganganagar
Hi, pain and lump in breast can have several reasons fibroadenoma hormonal normal development or rarely cancer. Along with axilla swelling it can be lymph node which can be normal, infection or cancer or if you had a history of tb, then it can be that too. You need to review a general Surgeon for breast and axilla examination.

I am 48 years old. Had mastectomy in 2007 t1n1mo right breast. Had chemotherapy 6 cycles and 5 years of tamoxifen. A recent breast ultrasound shows some simple cysts in the left breast. What does it indicate? is there any chance of these cysts turning malignant please Advice.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Need not worry about simple cysts, only worrisome thing would be solid mass lesions esp irregular growth, microcalcification may also indicate premalignant lesion, also must do breast self examination for any obvious changes

Walnuts Shields From Colon Cancer

Eating 28 grams of walnuts everyday may change gut bacteria in a way that suppresses colon cancer a new research has found by university of Connecticut Health centre in United States

Walnuts has the most poly unsaturated fatty acids of all the commonly eaten tree nuts as well as the highest ratio of Omega - 3 to Omega - 6 fatty acids and high levels of a form of Vitamin E with anti cancer properties

They found that walnut consumption tended to push the gut microbiome toward an ecology that was potentially protective against Cancer.

I am 29 years old male, and having prostate problem, can you please tell me the reason of this disease and what I should avoid in future. Please advise medicine and food supplements.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology
Oncologist,
Dear , the most common problem a 29 year old can have is prostatitis that is an infection. I assume you have consulted a doctor as you say that you have a problem with your prostate which cannot be known unless you do per rectal examination, ultrasound and urine examination. Most commonly it is secondarily effected from a urinary tract infection, and some sexually transmitted diseases. Treatment would primarily include antibiotics and analgesics. Healthy diet, good hygiene and protection during sexual exposure are important to avoid recurrences. Regards

Hi its my hubby's niece she is 4 years old has lymphoma, one cancer tumor frm brain was operated already another one grew for which a new magnetic treatment was given, now she has another hodgkin at her throat part which is suppressing her food and wind pipe. How to proceed.

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology

Dear lybrate-user chemotherapy is the answer. Since the tumor was already removed earlier and has recurred. Any residual disease remaining after 3 cycles can be followed by radiation therapy followed again by chemotherapy to prevent further recurrence.

Mam if it is totally depigmented it could be vitiligo. If it still has some colour then it could be something else.
