Breast cancer is lifestyle, Hormone related and gene related disease. Sedentary lifestyle, lack of exercise, fatty diet, hormonal therapy, late conception, no babies or even not breast feeding are common causes. Some patients may have it inherited. Breast cancer with node positive need chemotherapy and radiation followed by hormonal therapy if receptor positive.

Want to know is there medical evidence to prove that the radiations from cellphone towers are causing cancer and heart problems to public near by.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
So far sir there is no conclusive proof, but these kind of researches are not conclusive very fast as it may take many years to come to some conclusion, but we should not wait for it to be proven as it may be too late by then. Obviously we are seeing so much increase in incidence of cancer, both in rural and urban areas, it's like epidemic. Since no specific cause can be pointed out to, we must avoid any potential source of carcinogenic substance like mobile tower radiation. It should be away from a populated area to avoid constant exposure.

June 2016 mein maine throat ka ct scan krwaya tha report normal thi. Uske baad tak mein kisi karan bahut hi depression mein rhi aur roti rehti thi. Kya is karan se breast pain krti h kya. Kya role aur depression se breast cancer ka risk increase hota h kya. Please provide me accurate answer. Thank.

Psychiatrist,
Dear patient If your all clinical tests are normal (after proper consultation with gynecologist) and still you r perceiving pain and extremely and consistently worried about your physical health with regards to breast or extensive preoccupation about shape of breast, along with consistent sadness it cn be somatoform with depressive features. Although yours detailed mental status examination by a psychiatrist is needed to reach at proper diagnosis. You should go for a psychiatric consultation Regards.

HPV Vaccination Protect Against Cervical Cancer

HPV Vaccination Protect Against Cervical Cancer

You've probably heard that a HPV vaccine can protect women against cervical cancer. In fact, the vaccine may be most effective when given to girls and young women. However the strains against which the HPV vaccine provides protection is limited. The vaccine does provide cover against the most prevalent strains (learn all about Cervical Cancer).

What Are the Benefits of the HPV Vaccine?

The main benefit of the vaccine is protection from cervical cancer.

Two HPV vaccines are currently on the market: Gardasil and Cervarix. In 2006, the FDA licensed Gardasil, the first cervical cancer vaccine. In 2007 Cervarix was approved. However, they don't protect against all types of cancer-causing HPV. Vaccines protect against these four types of HPV:

  • HPV 6

  • HPV 11

  • HPV 16

  • HPV 18

These types are responsible for 70% of cervical cancers and 90% of genital warts (learn more about warts).

What parents should know about the HPV or Cervical Cancer Vaccine

Does your daughter need the HPV vaccine to help protect against cervical cancer?

Pap screening in girls and young women should be recommended as follows:

  • Within 3 years of becoming sexually active.

  • By age 21.

  • Most girls taking the vaccine will probably need fewer Pap smears taken at longer intervals over their lifetimes.

Has your daughter already been infected with HPV virus?

If so, receiving the vaccine won't prevent disease from that particular type. However, the HPV vaccine will protect against infection from the other HPV strains included in the shot.

Why Should Girls Receive the HPV Vaccine?

Full benefit of the HPV vaccine occurs only if you receive it before you're infected with any of the HPV strains included in the vaccine. That's why, vaccinating girls between ages 11 and 12 is recommended .Ideally, this is before they become sexually active. The HPV vaccine can also be given to girls as young as 9 and to girls from age 13 to 26 who have not received it earlier.

You may question whether 11 or 12 is too early to vaccinate, the vaccine has been shown to be more effective in immunizing against HPV when it is given to younger girls who have never been infected with the dangerous HPV strains.

Breast cancer is a cancer that develops from breast tissue. The signs of the disease may include a lump in the breast, change in shape of the breast, fluid coming from the nipple, dimpling of the skin and a few more. In case you trace any of the symptoms in your body, you should immediately visit a doctor and start with the treatment.

Am I possibly pregnant I had a depo shot and and two weeks later I had sex and I didn't get my period I took two pregnancy test both came out negative and I don't think they're right my body feels different I get heat flashes in my nipples, I got my period and I had cramps for three days but they were coming and fading away on the third day and I had a blood clot that had white in it so I don't know my boobs are also tender.

U r definitely not pregnant. All these symptoms are of excessive progesterone which you got fro depo shot. Depo shot was meant to protect you from getting pregnant for 11-12 weeks i. E. 2.5 months. Bleeding and white liquid is nothing but the menses. You r likely to face similar kind of menses for 2-3 months after depo shot. There is no need to do urine test for pregnancy again.

Better to see a breast surgeon for the same, who would examine you and if needed ask for an ultrasound or a mammogram. Joggers nipple is when the nipple gets sensitised due to constant brushing with the clothes while running. Also there could be dermatitis which can cause soreness of nipple. The other reason could be gynaecomastia which is painful in a few patients. Other cause is due to Pagets disease or cancer, which are rare in males. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.
