She has a small enlargement in her vaginal portion. Feeling little pain when touch. Is it dangerous. Need any treatment.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Most likely it is due to Bartholin cyst. It grows slowly on one side, feels like a tense balloon under the vaginal skin, just inside the opening. It can subside on its own but recurs. If it gets infected, pain will be severe, along with fever. Best option is to get it removed by minor surgery (day care).

Hello- No it does not create any problem in future. It has an additional benefit, if both the partners are of same blood group thn their children inherit the same group. This is of much importance in case of injury or emergency when the blood replacement is needed to any member.

Hi I have some issues with my breast. I feel severe pain in my breast nd the size of the breast also differs so I did my breast ultrasound today nd they told me that there are some ducts in the breast which are of 3 - 3.59 mm which should be not more than 2 mm. They told me to come after 1 month for the checkup again. Is this a matter of concern? What if these ducts don't come to original length after 1 month also. They told me it may cause infection. What type of infection is it?

Go for meditation to reduce your depression, stress, if any to nourish your whole body to rectify hormonal disorder to ease your problem. Homoeopathy can stand by to minimise your distress, successfully. To treat your case side of the affected breast be needed. Please, report fast to begine a suitable medication in homoeopathy. Till your report reaches me (not openly) tk the under noted homoeo medicine:@Bryonia alb 30-6 pills, thrice tk care.

Dear Lybrate user, Pregnancy had occurred and perhaps was abnormal. However, it is difficult to comment on the actual event. In case there are no symptoms, no action needs to be taken. One can repeat the test after few days.

13 Beneficial Home Remedies!

13 Beneficial Home Remedies!

Some of the most effective home remedies for lymphoma include the use of iodine, green tea extract, artemisinin, parsley, licorice, milk thistle, reishi mushrooms, sunshine exposure, omega-3 fatty acids, olive leaf extract, probiotics, and a reduction in sugar intake, stress, alcohol, and nicotine.

What is lymphoma?

One of the most dreaded and deadly forms of cancer is lymphoma, which is essentially a group of blood cell tumors than stem from the lymphatic system. There are two main types: hodgkin’s lymphoma and&;non-hodgkin’s lymphoma (about 90% of all lymphomas), and both can be dangerous. Cancer in any form is dangerous, but lymphoma is prone to metastasizing, and the connectivity between the lymphatic system and the rest of the body makes the spread of cancer a major concern. Lymphomas are the seventh most common form of cancer, and kills over 300, 000 people per year. There are a number of different causes of lymphoma, including previous illnesses like epstein-barr virus, autoimmune diseases, poor diet, pesticides, and other behavioral/environmental factors.

As with all other types of cancer, there is no formal cure, but there are accepted treatment strategies that can send cancer into remission, and improve quality of life, which include surgery, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and targeted therapy. However, there are some rather intense side effects to these prescribed treatments, so to lessen the side effects of these treatments, and to complement the powerful anti-cancer medications that are often prescribed, home remedies are often turned to. The symptoms of lymphoma include enlarged or hardened lymph nodes, night sweats, fever, weight loss, fatigue, itching, and respiratory distress. If you believe that you may be suffering from lymphoma, you should speak with an oncologist as soon as possible, but adding these natural remedies to your lifestyle is a great idea! now, let’s take a more in-depth look at the many home remedies for lymphoma.

Home remedies for lymphoma

Home remedies for lymphoma include:

1. Licorice

One of the main side effects of lymphoma is a notable loss of weight, and it can help to add some steroids to your diet in order to boost the body back to normal levels. Licorice contains various steroid-like compounds, in addition to active ingredients that directly impact the spread and severity of lymphomas in the body.

2. Reishi mushrooms

Tinctures made from reishi mushrooms have received some impressive attention as of late, given that these powerful fungi have shown anticancer and antiproliferative properties in the lab. While research is ongoing, it is believe that these mushrooms can effectively slow the spread of lymphoma.

3. Parlsey

Epithelial growth factors are a major cause of lymphoma and other types of cancer, but fortunately, parsley has been linked to inhibiting these growth factors, thereby protecting the body against lymphoma, or slowing down its spread while other treatments come in to safely eliminate the growth.

4. Quit smoking

Adding carcinogens to your body is always a bad idea, particularly if you are already suffering from a form of cancer. In terms of lymphoma, eliminating cigarettes will allow your body to focus on the cancerous growth, rather than splitting its attention. Smoking also weakens the immune system and increases the chances of chronic disease, so kick the habit today!

5. Omega-3 fatty acids

As always, “good” cholesterol makes an appearance on this home remedy list. The reduction in chronic disease that comes as a result of omega-3 fatty acids can help protectyou from many of the contributing conditions that can lead to lymphoma. Furthermore, the boosted immune system and antioxidant behavior of certain omega-3s will help keep you cancer-free.

6. Milk thistle

This popular herb is used for many different health conditions, primarily in terms of detoxifying the body and improving the functionality of the liver. By adding milk thistle to your daily health regimen, you greatly increase your glutathione content, an important component of protecting metabolic health.

7. Iodine

Iodine has been known to directly attackcancer cells, so taking iodine supplements is appropriate for all types of cancers. You can increase your iodine intake by adding iodine-rich foods like yogurt, beans, cheese, and potatoes.

8. Lower stress

Stress hormones can be helpful in certain settings, but also dangerous in others, particularly if they are constantly present in the body. This can exhaust the metabolism, lower energy levels, and have more serious impacts. If you can lower stress through meditation or yoga, eliminating excess cortisol in the body is always a good way to lower oxidative stress in the body.

9. Green tea extract

The catechins and epicatechins in green tea are natural anti-cancer and anti-tumor substances, so the concentrated effects of green tea in its extract is particularly effective at protecting you from a wide range of cancers, including lymphomas.

10. Alcohol intake

Excessive alcohol intake weakens the body, so while it may seem relaxing to blow off some steam with a night of imbibing, this can compromise your immune system and make you more susceptible to chronic disease and cancer like lymphoma.

11. Olive leaf extract

Lymphomas are essentially tumors, and one of the best herbal extracts to eliminate tumors is olive leaf extract. While not the most commonly found herbal supplement, olive leaf extract’s polyphenols and flavonoids are extremely important in your body’s cancer defense.

12. Sunshine

Vitamin d from the sunshine is arguably the easiest home remedy for lymphoma, as you need only step outside to soak up the benefits. Vitamin d actively eliminates many of the symptoms of non-hodgkin’s lymphoma, so although it may not always be easy, getting a healthy dose of sunshine can keep cancer at bay.

13. Artemisinin

This ancient chinese herb is like a bloodhound for cancer cells and can effectively seek out and neutralize mutated cells, while leaving healthy cells intact. This may not be the easiest remedy to find, but it has proven its effectiveness for thousands of years.

A final word of warning: although these home remedies may be effective, this is still a highly invasive and dangerous form of cancer. You should always speak to a trained medical professional and an oncologist if you suspect a cancer diagnosis. These suggested remedies are alternative treatments and complementary approaches, and are not intended to replace more formal therapies.

Hi lybrate-user. Meet the gynaecologist after 2 weeks for a baseline check up and your first scan. Meanwhile it would be a good idea to start folic acid tablets once a day for baby's neural growth.

While the exact cause of PCOS is unknown, doctors believe that hormonal imbalances and genetics play a role. Women are more likely to develop PCOS if their mother or sister also has the condition. Overproduction of the hormone androgen may be another contributing factor. Androgen is a male sex hormone that women’s bodies also produce. Women with PCOS often produce higher-than-normal levels of androgen. This can affect the development and release of eggs during ovulation. Excess insulin (a hormone that helps convert sugars and starches into energy) may cause high androgen levels.
