Being an expert in gynaecological oncology, my advice is review the slides by another expert pathologists and if still report comes the same, radiation should be given.

Hello madam/sir. I want to ask you that my mom's having CA right breast cancer. She is under treatment taking herceptin Injection along with saline once in a month. Suddenly she got feel paining on her left upper chest just upper portion from the left breast. What should we do is that heart disease? She has back thought out pain also. Spinal cord. Now seriously scared about that coz of cancer? Kindly help us.

General Surgeon, Pune
From your question it seems like you have not undergone any operative procedure for right CA breast. So there are high chances of the cancer spreading to the opposite breast, which might be causing pain in left chest/breast as you say. Also, CA breast commonly spreads to back bones of vertebral column and cause back pain. Herceptin also should be given only after cardiac examination, and is often given with other chemotherapy drugs, which you did not mention here. So, I'll advise you to meet a oncosurgeon or a general surgeon in person and get examined, and be prepared to undergo some investigations.

If we can detect ovarian cancer at early stages, we have a cute rate of upto 95 percent once it recurs then we won't be able to cure it. We can only control the disease, prolong survival and improve quality of life. Please continue with platinum based Palliative chemotherapy.

I have small acnes on my both breasts what could be reason for this and is there any serious in that. Few months back in Jan -18 my TSH was at high level approx 8.00 now it is fine is it related to that or what else?

The breast acne could be a part of generalised acne or folliculitis. Sometimes it may be an allergic reaction. Better to show it to a dermatologist. The TSH of 8 is suggestive of hypothyroidism. Better to re-evaluate again in 4-6 weeks along with T3 and T4 levels and consider starting thyroxine tablets for the same. Also, see an endocrinologist for the same. To do an ultrasound of the thyroid would be advisable Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

My breasts skin getting loose. I want a fit and maintained figure for my husband love. What can I do?

Respected, hi practically no remedy is definite for your query. Just apply your inner sense to love your husband at peak through all your senses as that is not only dependent on texture of breast at all. Thanks regards.

ब्रेन कैंसर के लक्षण - Symptoms Of Brain Cancer!

ब्रेन कैंसर के लक्षण - Symptoms Of Brain Cancer!

शरीर के अलग-अलग अंगों में होने वाले कैंसर को उसके नाम से ही जानते हैं. इसलिए ब्रेन कैंसर का मतलब कैंसर के उस रूप से है जो मस्तिष्क (ब्रेन) से शुरू होता है. ब्रेन कैंसर मस्तिष्क की एक प्रकार की बीमारी है, जिसमें मस्तिष्क के ऊतकों में कैंसर कोशिकाएं पैदा होने लगती हैं. कैंसर की कोशिकाएं मस्तिष्क में ऊतकों के समूह या एक ट्यूमर के रूप में ऊभरती हैं, जो मस्तिष्क के कार्यों में बाधा उत्पन्न करती हैं. जैसे मांसपेशियों के नियंत्रण में परेशानी, सनसनी, यादाश्त और अन्य मस्तिष्क कार्यों को प्रभावित करना. कैंसर जो मस्तिष्क में शुरू होता है उसको प्राइमरी ब्रेन ट्यूमर कहा जाता है. यह ट्यूमर मस्तिष्क की संरचना से जुड़े किसी भी भाग में विकसित हो सकता है. जो कैंसर शरीर के किसी अन्य भाग से मस्तिष्क में फैलता है, उसे सेकंडरी ब्रेन ट्यूमर या ब्रेन मेटास्टेस कहा जाता है. ब्रेन कैंसर ट्यूमर मस्तिष्क पर अधिक दबाव डालता है, जिससे या तो वह ऊतक नष्ट होने लग जाते हैं या शरीर के अन्य भागों में समस्याएं उत्पन्न होने लगती हैं. ब्रेन कैंसर के लक्षणों के दिखाई पड़ने पर आपको तुरंत किसी विशेषज्ञ से दिखाना चाहिए. आइए ब्रेन कैंसर के लक्षणों को इस लेख के माध्यम से समझने का प्रयास करें.

ब्रेन कैंसर के लक्षण

किसी भी बिमारी को लक्षणों के आधार पर ही हम उसे पहचानते हैं. ठीक इसी तरह ब्रेन कैंसर होने पर भी हमें हमारे शरीर कुछ लक्षण दिखाई पड़ने लगते हैं. ये लक्षण ही ब्रेन कैंसर के होने का संकेत देते हैं. मेटास्टेटिक ब्रेन ट्यूमर के संकेत और लक्षण काफी सूक्ष्म हो सकते हैं, जिनका पता लगाने में परेशानी हो सकती है. ये ट्यूमर अक्सर किसी दूसरी स्थिति की जांच के दौरान दिखाई देते हैं. इसके लक्षण विकसित होने का कारण यह होता है कि ब्रेन का ट्यूमर या तो मस्तिष्क पर दबाव डाल रहा होता है या फिर उसके किसी हिस्से को ठीक से काम करने से रोक रहा होता है. इस दौरान मरीज क्या अनुभव कर रहा हैं? आम तौर पर यह इस बात पर निर्भर करता है कि ट्यूमर कहां पर है और आकार में कितना बड़ा है. इसके निम्नलिखित लक्षण संभावित हैं.

कभी-कभी मतली और उल्टी के साथ सिर दर्द

यह समस्या ट्यमर के कारण होती है जो आस-पास के ऊतकों को दबाकर खोपड़ी में दबाव बनाता है. आम तौर पर स्थिति सुबह के समय बद्तर होती है और दिन निकलने के साथ-साथ कम होती जाती है. पूरे शरीर में या आंशिक रूप से दौरे पड़ना, मांसपेशियों में ऐंठन, असामान्य गंध या स्वाद, बोलने में समस्या या सुन्नता और झुनझुनी अनुभव करना.

बोलने, समझने और देखते में समस्या

ब्रेन में ट्यूमर मस्तिष्क के उस भाग को प्रभावित कर सकता है, जो इन क्षमताओं को नियंत्रित करते हैं. शारीरिक कमजोरी और सुन्नता, यह तब होती है जब ट्यूमर मस्तिष्क के उन हिस्सों को प्रभावित करता है जो मांसपेशियों को नियंत्रित करते है. यदि ट्यूमर मस्तिष्क से मांसपेशियों तक जाने वाले सामान्य संकेतों के रास्ते में विकसित हो जाता है तो यह ब्रेन की कार्यगति में परेशानी पैदा करता है.

ब्रेन कैंसर में इसके अतिरिक्त कुछ अन्य लक्षण भी दिखाई पड़ सकते हैं: दौरे पड़ना, संवेदी (स्पर्श) और ब्रेन की कार्यगति (मूवमेंट कंट्रोल) में कमी, बहरापन, उनींदापन या उंघना, थकान, समन्वय में कमी, चेहरे पर कमजोरी का भाव, दोहरा दिखाई देना, डिप्रेशन (अवसाद), व्यवहारिक और सोचने समझने की क्षमता में परिवर्तन. उपरोक्त लक्षण ट्यूमर के प्रकार, आकार और उसकी जगह से जुड़े हो सकते हैं. इसके साथ ही साथ ये ब्रेन कैंसर को नियंत्रित करने के लिए उपचार में भी मदद करते हैं. सर्जरी, विकिरण (रेडिएशन), कीमोथेरेपी, और अन्य सभी प्रकार के उपचारों में नए लक्षण उत्पन्न करने की क्षमता होती है, क्योंकि ये ट्यूमर के प्रभाव को कम करने के लिए काम करते हैं.

I am 27 years old married woman. I am feeling pain in my left breast for almost 3 months. Have visited gen, Physician already.

Hi this is very common at your age if you feel a lump in your breast then it could be benign fibroadenoma but I will advice that you must go for ultrasound of both breasts done and send me the report don't worry take care.

I am 39 years old and a mother of 3 year old girl. I have been experiencing pain in both my breasts since last two days and feel lumps too. This happens usually before my menstrual cycle and pain and lumps fade away by the end of the periods. My periods is due in 10 days time. The pain already stared and I feel lots of lumps. Should I go for cancer screening now or wait till my periods get over?

Hi, It may be due to fibroadenosis. Start with cap primerose oil bd for 15 days (7 days before and after menstrual cycle). After that you can go for so no mammography screening.
