My aunt's Pap smear showing HPV positive. What does that implies? Is it necessary to be a cervical cancer? She had already undergone radiotherapy n chemotherapy for breast cancer two years back. Please help.

Hello dear, hpv positive means she carries high risk for cervical cancer. If patient has completed the family, she can go for hysterectomy.

This can be developing breast glands. Don't press them hard otherwise they will become painful. Don't worry this is normal in adolescent age.

1.Initiate self breast examination at 25 years of age. U need to learn to systematically examine your breast from a clinician. 2. Avoid delayed marriage, late child birth. 3. Control weight n do regular exercise.

Enlarged Prostate - Causes And Symptoms

The problem of an enlarged prostate or benign prostate hyperplasia is a very common occurrence as you grow older. It's known to strike men above the age of 50, with more than 50% of men after the age of 60, having this complaint.

Causes of enlarged prostate

A non-cancerous condition, enlarged prostate makes the passing of urine from the bladder through the urethra difficult. The multiplication of the prostate cells causes an enlargement of the gland, leading to a buildup of pressure on the urethra, affecting the discharge of urine from the body. The narrowing of the urethra, due to this benign condition, forces the bladder to contract more vigorously so as to push urine out of the body.

As time passes, the muscles of the bladder get significantly affected, causing them to become extremely sensitive, thicker and stronger. As a consequence, the bladder begins to contract, even if the amount of urine in the organ is negligible, causing episodes of frequent urination. Gradually, the bladder fails to completely empty itself of urine due to the constriction of the urethra. This can give rise to a number of health problems including the formation of bladder stones, urinary tract infections, blood in the urine and so on.


How can you identify the signs of the condition?

Signs of enlarged prostate are very easy to identify and include:

- A slow or weak urine flow
- Difficulty in initiating urination
- Instances of frequent urination
- A feeling of not completely emptying one's bladder
- Frequent urination during the night
- Exerting a lot to urinate
- Instances of dribbling
- Urgency to pass urine
- A feeling of urinating again minutes after doing so
- Urination that starts and stops

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

When I was 18 years old I got lump in my both breasts. They are more than one but my mom ad sister also have them and for them they are non cancerous .mine hurt a week before periods otherwise they are painless .and m also suffering from irregular periods. There is no nipple discharge or dimple. Or change in color etc so is there anything to worry about?

You need to keep your menstrual cycle in order. Regular checkups are adviced. Do get a GENETIC scan done if possible to rule out any unfortunate chances for Cancer. This could lead to short of oxygen to the brain and in turn to your system.

Dear lybrate-user sorry to hear about your mother's illness is she having cancer of liver or of any other organ which has spread to liver as lines of treatments are different. If the disease is of liver and has spread to whole of abdomen then in that case cure is not feasible but she can be given treatment which can give her time in terms of years depending on diagnosis please do not loose heart consult your cancer specialist.

My dad has a tumor in the upper and middle pole of the right kidney measuring 14 *6.9*10.5 CMS as per latest USG. 2. Likewise prostrate is also enlarged at 5 CMS. 3. The Impressions mentioned in the report include Mild Hepatocellular splenomegaly, small cyst measuring 1.7 CMS in the left lobe of liver, mass lesion in the right kidney, enlarged prostate. 4.The latest chest ray states, well defined rounded opacities in right mid zone and bilateral lower zone with a possibility of lungs metastasis. 5. He has lost 10 kgs in the last 1 year. 6. His left and right foot especially appear to be swelling now. Not sure why. 7. He wakes up 6-7 times at night to pass urine and as a result has a disturbed sleep. 8.He has been constantly having cough and pain along the lower back and spinal cord. How do you suggest I go about?

He would need a CT thorax to confirm the size and number of metastasis. Also a bone scan would be advisable if bone pain or raised alkaline phosphate level in blood. PET CT scan can be done instead of both the above investigations. MRI brain if symptomatic. If he is asymptomatic for the lung mets and his general condition is good and tumor is resectable and not poor prognosis on IMDC criteria (based on some blood reports and contition of Patient), then I prefer to to a cytoreductive nephrectomy to decrease the tumor burden. If lung mets are the only site of mets and resectable (depending on site and number) then we prefer to resect those too in the same setting. And we keep the patient on post op surveillance. If metastasis are unresectable then only cytoreductive nephrectomy is done. Later the patient is started on targeted therapy. If mets become amenable to metastatectomy after targeted therapy then metastatectomy can be considered at that stage. If not a candidate for cytoreductive nephrectomy then we consider targeted therapy (sunitinib) upfront in those with good prognosis on IMDC criteria. Those who are intermediate or poor prognosis, immunotherapy with nivolumab and ipilimumab or single agent nivolumab, but it is a costly treatment (2-3 lac per month) and if non affording then we consider targeted therapy in these patients too. Prostate symptomsof nocturia may be due to benign enlargement of prostate, which may need medication (alpha blockers with or without an androgen blocker like finasteride) or surgical intervention like TURP. Let a urologist evaluate the same. The weight loss may be related to the metastatic cancer & the same can lead to low albumin levels which can lead to the edema of both feet. The cough could be related to the lung mets. The back pain may be a sign of bone mets, hence a bone scan or a PET CT would be useful. If you have any doubts or need further explanation then you can contact me directly.

Dear sir, I am giving breast feeding for my kid of 3.5 years old. He is taking one but another breast is coming pain which he is not consumed. I am suffering with gastric problem. Why it is coming pain. Is there any serious problem? Sir.

MBBS, DNB - Obstetrics & Gynecology

If child is refusing breast from one milk or if there is pain in one breast only then you must meet a surgeon immediately. To rule out breast abscess. It may be breast engorgement. Doctor may ask you to do a sonography of breast in case there is a doubt.
