Respected lybrate-user hi nipple discharge may be normal related to some hormonal imbalance also not necessarily preg related. So far as scarring is concerned after confirmation that she is not pregnant she requires some meditation & brain calming exercises like yoga that's all dear thanks regards.

Respected hi see regarding act of feeling pleasure during sex criteria varies from each person to person so far as your pain in relation to pressing breast is concerned you have to do proper counselling & talk with your partner without becoming arogent that dear I am feeling more pain due to more pressure but if you r gentle in handling breast nipple areola it would be more pleasurable for you & your partner too. I am sure discussing frankly & gently will solve it definately and other things in foreplay will also help both of you to get more arousal & less breast pain dear thanks regards

Hi this and from past 10 years I am having fribo adenoma on my right breast and twice I have been operated but again and again coming back.

There is no need to get it removed unless it is causing significant symptoms or is rapidly growing in size or there is a recent change in its character or there is some reason for suspicion. Harmless fibroadenoma may be left alone but with monthly observation by self examination and periodic examination by a general surgeon.

I have lots of pain in my period time Sometime I'm suffering from fever. And I have a tumor in my breast (lymph nodes category 2 according to my mammography report) Size of tumor is 3 c. M. What should I do?

Generally this is due to a condition called fibroadenosis or a fibroadenoma or something more serious. Fibroadenosis appears to be the most likely diagnosis in your case. This is a harmless condition and is related to hormonal changes. It is usually more, a few days before the start of monthly menstrual period and becomes less after the periods. You might be able to feel a lump on catching with all the fingers of your hand but no lump when you try to feel it with the flat surface of the fingers / hand. Breast support with a tight fitting bra might give some relief. Medication can be of some help but that should be taken only after a physical examination by a general surgeon. Cancerous tumors are generally painless. General surgeon would advice a biopsy / fnac if he has any suspicion of cancer.

Both breast pain. I am 39 years old. I also removed my uterus and right ovarian before two years.

Both breast pain. I am 39 years old. I also removed my uterus and right ovarian before two years.
Breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, but your uterus is removed so keep watch that it occurs for few days in a month. If so it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month or if you can feel some lump/swelling then you may need to do ultrasound examination of breasts. For pain you can take paracetamol tablets, also wearing a well fitting cotton bra may help.

Usually there is no increased risk of developing cancer in gynecomatia over and above normal population. Gynecomatia is cosmetically and psychologically distressing. Plastic surgery can correct gynecomatia with invisible scars and cosmetically pleasing appearance of chest.

All About Melanoma

MD, DNB, FIDP, FIL
Dermatologist
Ask Free Question
Melanoma is a condition which mainly indicates a severe malfunction of the melanocytes or the melanin producing cells of the body. These cells are responsible for giving you your skin colour, tone and complexion. Usually, a person suffering from melanoma will have many normal and irregular moles as well as melanoma in the eye and digestive tracts too.

Some general facts on melanoma are mentioned below:
Melanoma is common in young women and causes many deaths.
More than one million new instances of skin cancer or melanoma are analyzed every year.
There has been a 2000% increase in rate of melanoma since the year 1930. One out of fifty get affected by this cancer.
There has been a high rise in the rate of melanoma from 1970 to 2008. There has been an 800% increase in young women and 400% increase in case of similar aged men.
Early recognition makes melanoma treatable. It is screened for growth very minimally.
Primary causes Melanoma may be caused primarily due to these causes:
The most primary cause of melanoma is ultraviolet light (UV) in people with a low level of skin pigment. The UV light might be from either the sun or from different sources, for example, tanning devices. Around 25% of cases occur from or in the form of moles.
The individuals who work on airplanes seem to have an expanded danger, due to more contact with UV rays.
Ultraviolet UV light of wavelengths between 315 - 280 nm from the sun react with the skin cell DNA and result in a kind of direct DNA harm called cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers (CPDs).
In order to stay away or avoid melanoma, you should:
Avoid the sun at peak hours.
Examine your skin at times for some kind of change.
Keep away from tanning salons.Melanoma is a dangerous form of cancer and causes a lot of deaths. You should stay away from anything that causes melanoma.

Angelina jolie effect

Angelina jolie's revelation for her family history of cancer and brca mutations has really benefitted genetic labs, who are getting more and more requests for brca testing from doctors and patients.

The point which everyone is missing out on is that not every patient with breast cancer requires this test. Another important thing which is being left out is the pre-test counseling, which highlights the implications of a positive and negative test.
In India, the test has to be offered judiciously because indian ladies will not readily agree for bilateral mastectomies or salpingo-oophrectomies, if the test comes positive.

It is best to consult your breast onco-surgeon or genetic counselor before ordering these tests.
