Where I feel n believe that there is not good doctors to go for such treatments, they had already cut one of her breast. Pl.

Her breast produces liquid white discharge during love-making sessions, when pressed with even little pressure. Only the left breast. Is it anything to be concerned about?

The sound of the word cancer can be really traumatic and the fact the one may most of the time be unaware of this condition can be hard to handle. The same is the situation in the case of lung cancer as it does not produce any remarkable signs and symptoms in its early stages. However, there are ways in which you can be aware of this life-threatening ailment. Here are some tell-tale signs of an early stage of lung cancer:
A stubborn cough:
Beware when a cough is lingering on for long with no sign of relief. When a cough is related to cold and respiratory infection, it will subside within a week or so. But in case the cough is persistent, it can be a symptom of lung cancer. You should never dismiss a stubborn cough regardless of whether it is dry or producing mucus. You should talk to a doctor right away as he can check the lungs and may order for other tests to determine whether you have cancer.
Becoming easily winded or shortness of breath is considered the most prominent symptoms of lung cancers. This may occur when cancer blocks or inhibit the airway or when the fluid from the tumor starts building up in the chest. If you find that it is becoming difficult for you to breathe in doing tasks that you found easy before, you should not ignore it.
When the airways become inflamed, blocked or constricted, then the lungs would produce a wheezing and whistling sound while breathing. It can be associated with a host of other causes that are easily treatable but could also be due to lung cancer.
Even though headaches are considered one of the most common health problems, if there is a persistent headache, then it could be a sign that lung cancer has spread to the brain. It is important to understand that all headaches are not associated with the brain metastases. There are times when the lung cancer creates pressure on the superior vena cava which is in charge of supplying blood to the upper part of the brain. This pressure can also lead to headaches.
Pain in the bone:
If the lung cancer has spread to the other parts of the body, then it may produce mild pain in the back and other parts of the body. It tends to become worse during the night when you are resting on your back. But it can be difficult for a commoner to differentiate between muscle and bone pain. In case you are suffering from bone pain, you will see that it is becoming worse with movement. Moreover, lung cancer is also associated with pain in the shoulder, neck, and arm even though it is very rare. You should be very attentive to the pain and aches in the body and consult with an expert at the earliest.
You can easily combat lung cancer if diagnosed and treatment is started in its early stages.
In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

What are the treatment options for treating triple negative breast cancer related pleural effusion? Is it curable? What is the life span for such patients?
My name is Dr. Manish Kumar Singhal. Today, we will discuss treatments of lung cancer. Lung cancer, which was considered untreatable a decade ago, is now curable up to a large extent. The most important part of the treatment is to detect the cancer stage, for which we do the PET CT Scan. The treatment also depends on the subtypes of cancer. We are aware of ten different subtypes which are cured by different suitable drugs. To detect the subtypes, we need tissues for the biopsy, according to which we classify cancer into its subtypes. Under Stage 1, surgery is the preferred method of treatment. Stage 2 involves both surgery and chemotherapy, while the same is difficult to treat Stage 3.
Hence, Stage 3 is treated with the combination of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Stage 4 is treated with different types of chemotherapies, or targeted therapies or immunotherapies as per the detected subtype. The treatment has the success rate of 60%, 40%, 20% under Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3 respectively. However, Stage 4 is considered hard to cure but the survival rate has considerably increased by 25% in the last 5 years. Early detection is the key against lung cancer, but even in the case of detection in later stages, we are now able to achieve better survival rates for a longer period of time than before.
