I am 18 years old and I am an boy. I have a big lumb on my right chest since 2 years. The left one is normal but the right chest appears like a breast.

To the best of our knowledge no medicines or creams work to decrease the breast size. Male breast or gynecomastia reduction. Gynecomastia is treatable by surgery. There is no medical treatment. It is a one day out patient surgery with very gratifying results. It boosts self esteem also. It is a 1 day hospital stay surgery. It takes 1 day for consultation and investigation and 2nd day surgery and discharge in 3-4 hours. The Dr. Can examine and tell you what is the problem, gynacomastia has a breast tissue and a fat component. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. There is no medication which can give the results. Surgery is the only answer. The surgery is almost painless because there are enough medications to keep the pain under control.

Better to see a Surgical oncologist or a breast surgeon. They would examine you and if needed ask for an ultrasound. Pain in the breasts could be due to cyclical mastalgia, fibrocystic disease, hormonal changes due to OC pills or pregnancy, granulomatous mastitis, abscess, cysts, fat necrosis, bruising 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. Also pain anteriorly could be due to costichondritis which is inflammation of the rib and cartilage junction. Abscess leads to throbbing pain with redness Cyst may lead to pricking pain. Rupture of the same leads to throbbing pain. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

How Ayurveda Helps Treat Skin Cancer?

Skin is a very vital organ of your body as it protects your body from external injuries and also helps in regulating your body temperature. The gradual development of cancer cells on your skin region is known as skin cancer. Skin cancer is a very common disease that is affecting people worldwide. Many causes are responsible for skin cancer.

Some of them are stated as follows:

  • Overexposure to sun rays. The Ultraviolet rays can cause serious damage to your skin that can lead to cancer.
  • Sun burns may also result in the development of cancer cells
  • Frequent exposure to toxic chemical substance can also trigger skin cancer.
  • A frail immune system may also contribute to skin cancer.
  • Certain scars on your skin, if left untreated, may become cancerous and eventually lead to skin cancer.
  • Consuming unhealthy foods and being unhygienic may also lead to skin cancers.

Skin cancer may develop all over your body or on any particular region of your skin. It can spread to other parts of your body rapidly. The symptoms of skin cancer depend on the type of your cancer.

Some of the common symptoms of skin cancer are as follows:

  • A sore on your skin that cannot be healed
  • Swelling of your skin
  • You may also get an itching sensation frequently
  • Appearance of bumps
  • Bleeding of the affected areas
  • Appearance of reddish spots
  • A bleeding mole

Skin cancer is absolutely curable if treated at an early stage. Ayurveda offers effective remedies for treating skin cancer.

They are mentioned below:

  1. Panchakarma therapy is the most effective treatment for healing skin cancer. It involves purification and removal of harmful toxins from your body through its 5 constituent therapeutic treatments namely, Vamana, Virechana, Nasya, Basti and Raktamokshana.
  2. Drinking green tea can be very helpful. It is known to have anti cancerous properties which help prevent and combat this killer.
  3. Including more of citrus food in your diet such as lemons, oranges; excluding oily, fried foods and cutting down on higher quantities of sugar can prove to be beneficial.
  4. Applying turmeric paste on the affected areas may help you to guard against skin cancer.

You must not ignore skin cancer and seek advice from a doctor as early as possible since the process of metastasis (spreading of cancer cells to different spots of your body) is very rapid in this case.

Cancer is caused by uncontrolled growth of cells in an area of our body. It can be due to loss of function of tumor suppressor genes or due to increased function of oncogenes. Screening is recommended for a few cancers to help in early detection and cure. Breast Cancer: screening mammography from age 45 years every 2-3 yearly. Cervical cancer: Pap smear (3 yearly) or HPV (5 yearly) from age 26 to 55 Prostate cancer PSA level every 2 years from age 50. Oral cancers: visual inspection in high risk individuals Lung cancer: low dose ct scan in high risk individuals Colon cancer: Fecal occult blood test (colonoscopy for high risk) Stomach cancer: OGD scopy for high risk Some tests which may be done, but not standard recommendations are: Ovary: usg and CA 125 Pancreas: Ca19. 9 and usg There are many cancers and that many causes of cancer. If localised, it may form a lump or swelling. Usually painless. If it has spread i.e. Stage 4, then symptoms due to the affected site or organ can occur. E.g. Breathlessness or hemoptysis in lung, jaundice in liver, ascites with abdominal distension in peritoneum, bone pain or fracture in bony mets, convulsion, vomiting and signs of raised intracranial hypertension in brain mets. It is not possible to write about all cancers and all it’s symptoms. I will enumerate a few causes and symptoms of common cancers in non metastatic settings.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your aunt. Apparently, your aunt has been administered neo-adjuvant chemotherapy to reduce the tumor size so that it can be surgically resected later on. You need to do a risk benefit analysis with help from your onco-surgeon, and take a decision accordingly, fast. Simultaneously, an integrative treatment with alternative medicines can be of help in improving clinical outcomes. You can revert with all relevant details for further naturopathic traction. Do take care, and all the very best.

If the lumps are non cancerous and are not growing in size or no. Then there is nothing to worry. There are certain medicines in allopathy which can be helpful which any surgeon can prescribe after examining you. If there is no relief with medicines then surgery is the option. The reason for this is usually hormonal changes which occur during this time in a girls life.
