Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your mother. Hormonal changes from monthly menstruation can trigger cysts. However, breast cysts are usually benign. Nevertheless, to be on a safer side, I would advise you to get this clinically examined by her ob/ gyn right away and not delay any further. In general, do follow a streamlined diet (preferably mediterranean) and lifestyle with due emphasis on regular exercise, stress reduction and relaxation. Should she have any pain, she may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate the same. She needs to stay well hydrated and can take'amla churna' (patanjali) &'bael churna (patanjali- 1/2 tsp each with warm water, preferably before lunch daily for next 1 month. She can also take tomato soup to which fresh herbs like garlic, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, coriander leaves and oregano has been added, once daily. Her ob/ gyn shall be able to advise further on, in particular, once he/ she gets to clinically examine her in person. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely,

Probably you have fibroadenoma of breast which is a benign breast tumor. Please send all the investigations reports for definitive conclusion.

Hello Please require you r help. My dad at 46years of age is addicted towards tobacco chewing and having couple of pans. Whenever I argue him to dump these habits. He always says that he is just chewing tobacco because he has digestive problems. At 3.00am in the night also to empty his bowel he needs to chew tobacco. He takes zandu pancharist but then too he requires tobacco. I m really really worried for his health in future. I don't know what should I do. When ever I argue with him he gets aggressive. He is literate enough and doing good with his profession but then to I don't understand how can tobacco helps him to get rid of his digestive problems. My grandfather also had these habit n he died do to cancer. I love my dad the most in these universe so Please I need you r genuine, genuine suggestion. you all r the only hope so please give your valuable feedback.

Hello lybrate-user, I understand that it is very tough to convince parents for leaving this bad habit. However, you can show my answer to him to further convince him. In my clinical practice, I have seen a lot of patients suffering from oral cancer who had addiction to tobacco. Chewing tobacco is definitely really bad for health. It can cause cancer too. It is a very poor addiction which will damage oral health. The teeth will be stained making the look ugly and the mouth will be full of non healing ulcers if he doesn't give up this bad habit. Its my strong request to persuade your father to stop chewing tobacco. If he feels difficult to abstain, I can prescribe some medicines for same. However, will power is most important for leaving this bad habit.

Are You at Risk of a Prostate Disease?

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, DNB - Urology
Urologist, Delhi
Are You at Risk of a Prostate Disease?

What menstrual problems are to women, prostate problems are to men. The prostate is a gland in the lower abdomen that aids in the production of semen. The prostate is walnut sized in a young man, but can get enlarged with age. As it grows bigger, it can cause a number of problems. These are commonly seen after a man celebrates his 50th birthday.

There are three common prostate problems faced by men. Some of the symptoms that can tell if a man has a prostate problem are:

1. Difficulty faced while urinating.
2. The urge to urinate frequently at night.
3. Constant feeling of a full bladder.
4. Pain while urinating.
5. Blood in urine.

Prostatitis

This can be defined as inflammation of the prostate gland. In most cases the cause of this inflammation is unknown. However, there are two types of prostatitis; bacterial and nonbacterial. While the former reacts well to antibiotics, the latter is more difficult to control. Symptoms of this disease vary from one person to the next. Some of the factors that could trigger this disease are:

1. Chemical irritants
2. Past bacterial infection
3. Dysfunctional pelvic floor muscles
4. Sexual abuse
5. Chronic anxiety

Enlarged prostate

As mentioned earlier, as men get older, the prostate gland tends to grow in size. This growth is benign, but can block the bladder neck and prostatic urethra. This can cause problems urinating and lead to acute urinary retention. This can be very painful. Inserting a catheter can provide temporary relief and help release stored urine. Chronic retention is much less common and is associated with high bladder pressure and can damage the kidneys.

Prostate cancer

Advancing age and family genetic history are said to be the main triggers of prostate cancer. This type of cancer can remain restricted to the prostate gland in its early stages but may spread to the other glands as the cancer advances. This can also cause the growth of secondary tumors in the bones.

The only way to correctly diagnose a prostate problem is with a thorough physical examination. This includes a digital rectal exam where the doctor will insert a gloved finger into your rectum to check the size of your prostate, a blood test, mid stream urine tests and ultrasounds. In some cases a biopsy of the prostate may also be required. Depending on the diagnosis, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics, surgery, radiotherapy or hormone therapy to manage your prostate. Or, you can also consult a specialist online.

Hello sir I'm surfing from gynecomastia from last 7 years is there any chance of breast cancer? Please reply help me to find out and give some tips as well!

Usually there is no increased risk of developing cancer in gynecomatia over and above normal population. Gynecomatia is cosmetically and psychologically distressing. Plastic surgery can correct gynecomatia with invisible scars and cosmetically pleasing appearance of chest.

Swelling in lower lip for last 2 days. Reasons are unknown before swelling appears when he woke up in the morning. Today it ruptures and some blood with yellow fluid came out. My father is a smoker for last 20-25 years. Can it be a form of oral cancer. Please reply

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, since the swelling has been there only for the past two days it's unlikely to be a cancer. So don't be worried. It's more likely an abcess (bacterial infection) that has ruptured. Treatment will require antibiotics. I will advise you to consult a general surgeon or ent specialist or dentist for appropriate treatment. In any case I would strongly advise him to quit smoking since it definitely poses a risk for developing cancer.

USG of right breast showing large hypoechoic SOL (22*15 mm) seen at upper quadrant and one small SOL (10*7 mm) seen in lower quardant. Is it breast cancer?

M.CH - Surgical Oncology
Oncologist, Visakhapatnam
Hi, it is most unlikely at your age to have breast cancer. Usually breast cancer presents as a single lump. I will need more features to make a diagnosis. Those sol (meaning space occupying lesions) will most likely be fibroadenomas which are benign lumps a caused by the normal changes in the breast with age. They will not turn to cancer. You can confirm it by getting an fnac done. It would be better if you consult a surgeon who can diagnose and treat it. Surgery is the only treatment for fibroadenomas, done if they are painful or large or for cosmetic reasons. Hope this helps. All the best.
