Hi I’m an obese person and my breast size is big now it’s been months I have notice red colour pimples on both the breast in large quantity and some boils on and off worried about this and I’m suffering from diabetes.
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.
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.

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.

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!
- 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.
- 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!
