We have a baby of 2-3 month old and she is breast feeding. My wife has some kind of solid deposits around her breast, that causes some much pain while feeding and after. Pain is like electricity is running on that part can’t say where the pain is but it is very painful. We consulted doctors she prescribed medicine antibiotics and pain killers with USG test and blood test report is normal. Can I have a better diagnosis on this, I don’t know what to do and I am nervous.

It's quite possible that milk must have collected in her breast. This milk should drain out while feeding but sometimes it gets collected which gradually becomes hard. Try to massage it well if tolerable and loosen the milk, so that it will be drained. If not possible, also if antibiotics too are not helping then may have to remove it surgically. Best option is to consult a gynaecologist. Even homoeopathy is helpful. You can consult me online.

Tumours In The Ovary - What All Should You Know!

Tumours In The Ovary - What All Should You Know!

Cancer is increasing all over the world and especially cancer of the ovaries. We all remember Angelina Jolie getting both her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed last year due to fears of having early ovarian cancer. This increased awareness about ovarian cancer amongst women worldwide, more than anything else.

Ovarian cancer is a relatively rare female cancer, it is rarer than breast cancer or cervical cancer. But it kills the maximum numbers of women worldwide because it is usually caught very late. Its symptoms are those that most of us put up with day in and day out without thinking twice, like persistent bloating , gas, nausea, abdominal pressure and fullness, pelvic discomfort or pain, persistent constipation or a frequent need to urinate, loss of appetite or quickly feeling full, increase in waistline and a persistent lack of energy.

Epithelial tumours that occur in cells located on the surface of the ovary, are the most common. They are also found mostly in women more than 60 yrs of age. Most women never get ovarian cancer even if they live to be 90, but certain others get it in their 30s. Why? Doctors say genetics, obesity and the number of years a woman ovulates are all risk factors. Thus, women who’ve never had babies or been on birth control or have started ovulating very early are all at risk. As, fertility medications that cause women to ovulate more frequently are also a risk factor for getting this cancer. 

The truth of the matter is that the sooner ovarian cancer is diagnosed, the easier it is to treat. So when do you seek treatment for cancer? Obviously, as soon as you are diagnosed. If you have 2-3 symptoms of this cancer present together and they only get worse with time, then you must go to your gynaecologist to rule out ovarian cancer. 

If you have the disease this is what your doctor may advise you to do
Angelina Jolie took a bold decision to get her ovaries removed even though she wasn’t really suffering from ovarian cancer. But if you have this cancer and its spread then you will have to go for either surgery in which the tumour and most tissues around it will be removed or radiotherapy or both as treatment.

Radiation therapy and chemotherapy may also be used to halt cancer progression by killing the cancer cells or keeping them from dividing. These treatments could be administered before or after surgery.
There are a few novel treatments like new chemotherapy drugs, vaccines, gene therapy and immunotherapy but they are still under investigation.

The success of your cancer treatment depends on the skill of your gynecologic oncologists who will design your treatment.

Try silodal d or urimax d. If these medicines are not giving required relief what you expect than you might need prostate surgery in near future.

Rest lumps Swelling of Lymph Node My sister is aged about 40 years. She had a lump in her right breast a mammogram was done and then 2.5 cms lump with benign lymph nodes were noted. A quadrantectomy on right breast only was done and no lymph nodes were extracted. Upon HPE it was revealed that she has ductal infiltrating carcinoma. Then PET CT was done and no distant metastasis and no lymphadenopathy was reveled. However focal activity in colon wall noted. It is advised to undergo 4 cycles of CT and the breast only irradiation. Sir what would be the ideal procedure and treatment schedule. Is removal of lymph nodes and hpe of same again required or can we just go ahead with above treatment. I can send the reports if required.

We need to address the axilla especially for staging. 30% of nodes which are negative for cancer on ultrasound, PET scan and Core Biopsy or FNAC, turn out to be positive on sentinel node Biopsy. Ideal procedure for a negative axilla should be a sentinel node Biopsy and if found positive, then an Axillary clearance should be done. (some prefer to leave it at that if 1-2 nodes only positive or radiate the axilla) This staging of Axilla helps to decide the prognosis of the disease. E.g we may shift to adria based chemo plus taxanes. Also the ER/PR/Her 2 status determines the treatment needed I would be able to opine better if you send the reports directly.

Hi lybrate-user. Normaly lymph nodes is removed to diagnose the cancer is metastasis or not .if CT showes no metastasis .And no lymph adenopathy. There is no need to removal of lymph nodes required. Radiation and chemo therapy will take care of any metastasis is present.

Ayurveda In Treating Different Types Of Cancers!

Cancer develops when certain unhealthy cells of your body deviate from their normal lifecycle – they do not die - and start to accumulate, leading to the uncontrolled growth of abnormal body cells. These newly formed cells create a mass of tissue known as tumor that results in cancer. Cancer is a life threatening disorder and as per statistics, approximately 3.9 million Indians were diagnosed with cancer in 2016.

Several genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors contribute to the development of cancer - family history, smoking, alcohol etc.

Different Types of Cancer-
Cancers can originate in any part of the body and may spread to other portions/organs. most common types of cancer are-

1) Breast cancer- When cancer forms in the cells of the breast. This type of cancer is more common in women than in men.

Symptoms-

  • Change in the size and appearance of the breast
  • Redness, peeling/scaling
  • A newly inverted nipple

2) Prostate cancer- This is one of the most common types of cancer seen in men. It progresses gradually and remains confined to the prostate gland in the initial stages. In some cases, the cancer cells may grow more aggressively and spread to other body parts.

Symptoms-

  • Difficulty urinating
  • Blood in the semen
  • Pain in the pelvic region

3) Melanoma- This is the most serious form of skin cancer. Melanoma occurs when the pigment-producing cells, which give your skin its characteristic color, become cancerous.

Symptoms-

  • Unusual lumps, sores or moles
  • Change in the pattern of an existing mole

4) Colon cancer- Colon cancer develops in the colon or the rectum. Initially, Colon cancer originates as polyps - abnormal growths found within the colon or rectum, that may become cancerous if left untreated.

Symptoms-

5) Lung cancer- This is by far the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide. It develops in the lungs and most often affects those who smoke. In 2013, 90,000 people in India died from lung cancer.

Symptoms-

6) Leukemia- Leukemia refers to the cancer of the blood tissues including the bone marrow.

Can Ayurveda help treat Cancer?
The inception of Ayurveda began 5000 years ago. Since then, this branch of medicine is used to treat several disorders and ailments. What is more fascinating is that Ayurveda has now been proven credible in treating critical cancer as well!

  1. Ayurveda believes that health problems occur due to dosha imbalance - an imbalance of the five natural elements in the body – earth, fire, water, air and ether. Hence, the treatment involves an in-depth, holistic approach. Ayurveda heals the disease depending on the patient’s overall health and the body tissues affected.
  2. Ayurveda aims to purify your body of the toxins that cause the cancer cells to attack your body. Treatment involves using cleansing herbs along with a detoxifying diet. Herbs and essential oils are administered through the Panchakarma vidhi to promote blood circulation, restore the damaged tissues, and boost your immune system.

Conventional cancer treatment can be physically exhausting for the patient, and often have adverse effects on the body. Ayurveda therapies use natural remedies to cure the disease and prevent its recurrence. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Vaginal Cancer - The Silent Scourge!

Vaginal Cancer - The Silent Scourge!

We all hear about cervical or ovarian cancer, but who hears about vaginal cancer?  The fact is that vaginal cancer, while uncommon, can be deadly if left undiagnosed and treated. Many women with vaginal cancer may not even know that they have it until it is too late. The cancer itself, and treatment options are discussed here!

The vaginal canal is sometimes referred to as the ‘birth canal’ because it leads from the opening of the cervix to the outside of the body. There are two main types of vaginal cancer: squamous cell carcinoma, and adenocarcinoma. Squamous cell carcinoma forms in the thin, flat cells that line the vagina. It grows slowly and usually does not metastasize, but when it does, it can spread to the lungs and liver, thereby being potentially deadly.

Adenocarcinoma grows in the secretory glands of the vagina. This type of cancer is more common, and more likely to metastasize. This type of cancer appears most commonly after menopause.

Women who are above the age of 60, exposed to DES while in the womb, have had HPV, have had cervical cancer, or a history of abnormal cells in the cervix, have had uterine cancer, or a history of abnormal cells in the uterus, and have had a hysterectomy for cancer or other health problems affecting the uterus are more likely to develop vaginal cancer.

Vaginal cancer manifests itself in the form of pain or abnormal bleeding.  However, since it is oftentimes symptomless, it may only be detected during yearly pelvic exams and pap smears.  Bleeding and discharge in between periods, pain during intercourse, pain in the pelvic area, vaginal lumps, pain while urinating, and constipation are all signs of vaginal cancer.  

This cancer can often be detected by physical exams, pelvic exams, pap smears, colposcopies, biopsies, Treatment works better if the cancer has not metastasized, the tumor size, the grade of the tumor cells, if there are symptoms at diagnosis, if the patient is younger and in good relative health, and if the cancer has gone into permanent remission.

Treatment options include hysterectomy, vaginectomy, brachytherapy, dystilbol, pelvic exams, and vulvectomy.  As can be seen, the only viable treatment option in many cases is either minor or major surgery which results in removal in part or all of the reproductive tract organs.

Vaginal cancer patients have a better outlook than ever before.  Vaginal cancer is no longer the silent killer that it used to be, and many patients are living long and productive lives long after treatment. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
