Nipple shrinkage if present from the beginning is nothing to worry about. It will not cause any problem in future. Shrinkage of recent onset needs evaluation and investigation. Please consult a general surgeon for proper management.

Does it make sense to get a comprehensive check done for cancer markers once you reach the age of 50?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer is a disease predominantly of age group beyond fifty years and most often by this age the natural immunity to fight cancer goes down and the likelihood of getting cancers increases. hence this the actual age where the comprehensive cancer screening becomes a must and tests like PSA, CEA , need to be done along with head and neck examination, chest x ray, ultrasound abdomen,stool and urine examination ,CA125 ,pap smear and mammography( in females,) should be done.

Esophageal Cancer - How Can It Be Prevented?

Cancer is one of the most widespread and incurable diseases that mankind has been combating with till date. We still have to go long for treating this deadly disease, regardless the progress man has made in medicine and medical sciences. Cancer continues to take the life of millions of people every year. In this article, we are going to talk about Esophageal Cancer, what it is, its symptoms and causes. Let us have a look.

What is Esophageal Cancer?

Esophagus is the long hollow tube that starts from your throat and ends up in the stomach. The esophagus helps us to move the food down when we swallow it. So, cancer which affects the esophagus tract is known as Esophageal cancer. It generally affects the cells that line the inner walls of the esophagus. It is the 6th most common form of cancer that takes thousands of lives every year. Let us have a look at the symptoms of esophageal cancer.

SymptomsEsophageal cancer can be easily identified when it attacks a patient. There are some important symptoms that are prominent and clearly points towards the type of cancer.The patient faces difficulty in swallowing (dysphagia) because the esophageal tract starts to get narrow because of the excessive growth of abnormal cells inside its walls. Therefore food cannot be swallowed easily by the victim. Weight loss without the will of trying is also a symptom. This is because the patient cannot eat and drink properly anymore because of the unhealthy inflammation of the tract. The patient can suffer from abnormal chest pain, high pressure or burning sensations. These are followed by pukish feelings as well. Failure to digest properly or heartburn is very common and usually makes the patient weak and mentally irritated because of the problems in the digestive system.

How to prevent Esophageal cancer?

Actually, no one can definitely say that a set of the solution will keep someone away from cancer. It is not possible as cancer can affect anyone. But we can surely follow some steps at least to prevent it from happening in the first place. One needs to quit smoking and drinking alcohol. Tobacco is very harmful to each and every part of your body, therefore, it is absolutely not recommended to smoke and quit it completely. Same goes for alcohol intake. Even if you drink alcohol, drink it in moderation and not always. Eating more fruits and vegetables is one of the most important elements that can help your metabolism grow much stronger and help them to fight with any kind of foreign cells. Maintain a healthy weight and keep exercising daily for better body structure and functions.

Pain in the breasts could be due to cyclical mastalgia, fibrocystic disease, hormonal changes due to OC pills or pregnancy, granulomatous mastitis, abscess, cysts and rarely cancer. The treatment would depend upon the cause. Most common cause is cyclical mastalgia due to fibrocystic changes, which usually resolve with time. Treatment may be given if severe pain. Better to see a breast surgeon who would examine you, ask for an ultrasound with mammogram (not in young patients) and core biopsy if needed. If you want to further discuss your symptoms, feel free to contact me directly.

I am 25 years old male. I went for a check up five months back for kidney stones. The doctor told me that your prostate is getting enlarged and asked me a question do you masturbate daily. I told yes. He asked me to stop it. Now my question is if I have enlarged prostate how do I cure without any side effects or naturally. I use to urinate nearly 20 times daily. I suspect it is because of enlarged prostate because my blood sugar is normal .Help me to out of this.

Hello- Frequent masturbation in young men is linked to higher risk of early prostate cancer, so yes Prostrate health can be affected badly with over masturbation. Its better to start some Urogenital aphrodisiacs of ayurveda, it will surely help you recover the masturbation induced prostrate enlargement in a natural way. Don't waste your time further and consult a ayurvedic sexologist ASAP.
