What presentation should be taken after breast cancer treatment. 2 year has been completed.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
If the female is healthy without any symptoms. Then nothing to be done. But if some nodular thing is felt in breast, then again she needs to go for mammography and checked. And if it comes positive then take homoeopathic carcinocinum 200 1 dose for that to avoid re-appearance.

Dear, keep your father under the following medication for 1 month:- 1) 5 drops of homoeopathic causticum 30 at early morning before brushing his teeth 2) 5 drops of homoeopathic conium mac 30, before going to bath 3) 5 drops of homoeopathic baryta carb 30, one hour before dinner 4) 30 drops of homoeopathic mother tincture sabal serrulata q, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. If the symptoms persists after one month of the aforesaid medication, then surgery would be the only option.

If the girl had regular normal periods, it is less likely to be a pregnancy. (exception is an ectopic pregnancy in which case the female may get spotting instead of the regular periods)

My mother has breast cancer. Her chemotherapy is going on. It is known to us that during the period of chemotherapy there is a chance of muscle pain. She sometimes suffers from that. It isn't possible to bring a physician every time. So I've to serve her. What should be the best way to give her a physiotherapy to reduce her muscle pain for that time. Please suggest something.

Chemotherapy drugs such as paclitaxel or docetaxel may cause myalgia , arthralgia for few days after each cycle. Depending on the severity use of analgesics for few days will be helpful.

I went to my doctor and she said that a PSA is needed for screening purposes. I asked why and she said that TRT can cause cancer. I told her I have heard nothing of this and if it does I would have never started it. I have read that being on TRT can fuel cancer that is already there making it grow.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, Hormone replacement can always trigger hormone dependent tumours like prostate cancers, so it would be best to get psa evaluated periodically. Though mostly it leads to benign hyperplasia, which is not a cancer, but still it's best to be cautious.

My husband is suffering from sarcoidosis, could I know is there any treatment? Please advise.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Yes. Definitely sarcoidosis has treatment. The patient should be tested for a definite diagnosis. Involvement of lungs are most commonly seen, although any organ may also be involved. Depending upon the stage and type of disease treatment may have to be given. Many stage 1 lung disease sarcodosis patients may not need any treatment, except careful regular assessment of the disease.

What is the symptoms of breast cancer (Women) in rural area's of India and the precaution to avoid this?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Breast cancer presents as painless lump. As it advances it can lead to skin changes, pain, redness, orange peel like appearance, fixity to chest wall, dimpling of skin and very advanced can cause lump to grow, bleeding ulceration etc. Though lifestyle is simple in rural areas but still gene related, hormonal disbslance etc may cause breast cancer and the simplest way of screening is self examination in sitting and lying down position and also check for symmetry infront of mirror. It should be done monthly five days after the periods are over.

I can not hold my urine I do not have Prostrate problem. Please advise.

MBBS
Nephrologist,
I can not hold my urine I do not have Prostrate problem. Please advise.
You need to do an USG for KUB and an urine R/e M/e. Probably you have an enlarged prostate which is very common in your age. There are initial medications which can be started to control your problem. For that you need to consult me privately coz writing a medicine in an open forum is unethical for doctors as people can use this for self medication which should not be encouraged at all. Thanks stay healthy stay happy.

My mom has a lump in the breast. We went to go to the doctor when lump was realized. Doctors said it's natural. It felt a little pain and swelling time to time after sonography test. Problem is still continued after 6-7 months. Many types of medicines we have tried but no relief. What can we do? Is sonography harmful? Any solutions in ayurveda, home or allopathy?

Hi! Doctor my question is that my wife age is 32 and he wants to know that whether she can have injections for uterus to prevent any kind of uterus cancer in future. Is this the right age for that or not.

MD - Radiothrapy, MBBS
Oncologist, Pune
There is a vaccine to prevent cervix cancer, but the ideal age for taking it is 9 to 16 years. Skip vaccination can be given till 26. But in your case as age is 32, vaccination is probably not beneficial.

How serious is Prostrate, what is the stage of must surgery, is there any chance of curing by medicine ?

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Delhi
First of all there is no definite cure for prostatic enlargement as this gland keeps on increasing in size under influence of male hormones. Medicines can halt the progression of size but once you stop medication, the growth of the gland recurs. Similarly surgery can only remove the excessive gland tissue present at that particular time, It won't stop the gland from further growth. So your decision to undergo surgery depends upon control of symptoms by drugs. If the difficulty in urination is relieved by medicines then you don't require surgery. If your problem exists despite medicines then you have to go under the knife.

You should do a mammography of bilateral breast. If the lump is highly suspicious, an fnac from the lump should be performed.

I got one testis enlarged. And also I am sure its not hydrocele. Please help.
usually the left testis is lower and appears larger. Kindly check for any painful spots after a hot bath. It could be a varicocele. Take some expert help if you see more and more size changes with time. Also hydrocele can't be ruled out without a clinical test.

Hello doctor, I saw discharge from my nipple by pressing it I am planning a family is it tat something related to it or not pls tell me. And another problem I m having is tat I got a knot (gath) on my uterus is tat something worried to it. My age is 25yrs. Please rply.

Hello doctor, I saw discharge from my nipple by pressing it I am planning a family is it tat something related to it ...
Discharge from nipple may not be connected anything with planning a family/ pregnancy etc. Sometimes it happens in males too. Reason could be suspicious if you are not nursing. But no need to panic. But notice if discharge is from one nipple only or come without touching it. It's better to meet your healthcare professional. For'gath' - it could fibroid, cyst, tumour. If so proper measures needed. In modern medicine they would go for surgical measures, d&c etc as per gynaec's decision. In ayurveda, aartav shuddhi is directed which is a non invasive, non surgical, non surgical measure by use of decoctions. Time taken could be right weeks minimum. Still better to assess consistency, size, type if knot by modern investigation.
