I am 24 years old female and I have a lump in my left breast 'fibredenoma' of size 2.5*2.5*1.5 and it pains a lot even if I am not having my periods. According to some doctors, fibroadenoma are painless. Is this possible that fibroadenoma are painful? What should I do?

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. In fact, fibroadenoma of the breast, as has been diagnosed in your case, is a benign condition. Though fibroadenomas are usually not painful, they could be sensitive to touch. Often women find it tender couple of days before the menstruation begins. For pain, you may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate the same. Gently massaging the breast (s) with little bit of a mixture of frankincense, sandalwood and lavender oils can help too. You may as well consider applying 'phytolacca decandra' oil topically for easing off breast pain. However, you need to exercise caution and stop further application should your skin be allergic to the same or you get any burning sensation. Simultaneously, do follow a streamlined and balanced diet (preferably Mediterranean) & regular lifestyle with due emphasis on regular exercise, stress reduction aFor any query if you wish you can take appointment. Dr. Saksena.nd relaxation. You can take 'Amla Churna' (Patanjali) & 'Bael Churna (Patanjali- 1/2 tsp each with warm water, preferably before lunch daily for next 1 month. You can also take tomato soup to which fresh herbs like garlic, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, coriander leaves and oregano has been added, once daily. Consume plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables on a daily basis. Especially, vegetables & fruits rich in carotenoids, vitamin C & vitamin B12 are known to help in this condition. Also, apples, broccoli, and cabbage contain glucaric acid which is closely similar to calcium D-glucarate that helps clearing out toxins and excess hormones out of the body that is likely to increase the risk of hormone dependent growths like fibroadenomas and also cancers of the breast. Try avoiding tea, coffee, carbonated soft drinks, dairy products including chocolates, alcohol, greasy, sugary and other high calorie food stuff including fast foods etc all. Green tea is an exception though. Stay well hydrated and have at least 8 - 10 glasses of clear fluids through out the day. Again, its very important that the fibroadenomatoid changes be monitored regularly for increase in size/ shape/ hardness, if any, and the OB/ GYN consulted apropos and follow his/ her advise without fail. The cause for fibroadenoma may have a genetic link or it may be also due to hormonal imbalance. If, its owing to an estrogen imbalance, your OB/ GYN is the right person to advise further diagnostics and treat this condition suitably. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best.

How to Cope With Post-Surgery Pain

General Surgeon, Noida
How to Cope With Post-Surgery Pain

The word 'surgery' is often dreaded by most patients. Be it an invasive oral surgery or a keyhole gallbladder surgery, it does not evoke a ready 'yes' in most patients. There are too many patients who are ready to be on long-term medications if they could to avoid the surgery and its complications. While there could be swelling, bruising, tingling and many other symptoms, the one feared by most is the postoperative pain. What happens after the effect of the anesthetic wears off can leave many patients in a very anxious and fearful state. The trick is to prepare oneself not just for the surgery but for the after effects.

Before the surgery, a detailed discussion with the doctor on the following is very important:

  1. List of medications: Complete list of medications include supplements so that the medications used during and after surgery to avoid any potential drug interactions
  2. Type and severity of the pain: This will help you anticipate and be prepared for the pain after the surgery.
  3. Pain tolerance/threshold: Letting your doctor know your tolerance levels can help them prescribe an appropriate pain killer 

After the surgery, the following are some ways to cope with the pain:

  1. Pain killers - Don't wait for the anesthesia effect to completely wear out. Take the painkiller much before the pain starts so that the onset of pain is delayed or nullified.  For severe cases, opioids may be used to manage immediate postoperative pain.  However, in most cases, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen are used. They may also be used up to a few days after surgery to ease the pain and inflammation, depending on the type of surgery.
  2. Topical creams/lotions - In cases involving skin incisions, these help reduce the pain in the skin along the incision.
  3. Compression stockings - In addition to reducing blood clot, they also reduce pain in the legs.
  4. Physiotherapy - If there is a joint involved, doing physiotherapy after surgery is extremely beneficial. In addition to reducing pain, they also help improve mobility.
  5. Sleep - Sufficient sleep (more than you normally would) promotes healing and helps your ability to cope with the pain.
  6. Heating pads and ice packs - If these are your regular remedies for pain, feel free to use them even in postsurgical pains.
  7. Reduce Stress - This will help you cope better with the pain and heal faster.

A given patient and a given surgery are a unique combination. No two patients will react the same way to a particular surgery. Postsurgical pain can be managed very effectively with a little planning.

Hello doctor. Today I feel red or brown vaginal discharge. Is my labour pain is near?

Brown or bloody discharge is usually normal, especially when it occurs during or right after your menstrual cycle. A late discharge at the end of your period can look brown instead of red. You may also experience a small amount of bloody discharge in between periods, which is called spotting.

Abdominal belt does not help in long term and occassionally cause temporary harm. Best is start abdominal excercises later and now do other excercises.

How could a woman can get pregnant if man pulls out before ejaculation during sex? When all sperms are out and not inside?

Well. Precum as this fluid does not contain sperm it can't by itself cause a pregnancy. However as the purpose of this fluid is to flush out the penis it will bring any sperm left in the penis from the last ejaculation to the tip of the penis. If this happens that small amount of sperm could cause a pregnancy.

Last night I had seen some spotting typ of blood coming out. firstly I thought that I had conceived n I am pregnant but unluckily home test came out to be negative. Can you please help me out with what m I suffering from?

Don't worry! the symptoms you faced most likely due to kricchvatta in Ayurveda. Just relax. Increase intake of water, preferably lukewarm water. Have freshly prepared, warm, and easily digestible meals. Include celery seeds, cumin seeds, cloves, fenugreek, asafetida, black pepper, coriander, and mint in cooking. Avoid heavy, oily, sour, fried, and indigestible foods that can cause constipation and flatulence. Avoid pumpkin, potato, cauliflower, cabbage, peas, mushrooms, and eggplant. Have a regular body massage with sesame oil. Exercise lightly each day, such as walking or stretching on a regular basis. Have a good night’s sleep. Avoid all type of stress. And we have in Ayurveda proper lifestyle pattern to be followed that ensures easy conceiving and healthy baby. You may consult me online privately.
