There’s no cure for multiple myeloma. However, there are treatments that can help ease the pain, reduce complications, and slow the progression of the disease. Treatments are only used if the disease is getting worse. Your doctor is unlikely to suggest treatment if you aren’t experiencing any symptoms. Instead, your doctor will closely monitor your condition for signs that the disease is progressing. This often involves regular blood and urine tests. If you need treatment, common options include the following: Targeted Therapy Targeted therapy medications block a chemical in myeloma cells that destroys proteins, causing the cancer cells to die. The drugs that may be used during targeted therapy include bortezomib (Velcade) and carfilzomib (Kyprolis). Both are administered intravenously, or through a vein in your arm. Biological Therapy Biological therapy medications use your body’s immune system to attack myeloma cells. The pill form of thalidomide (Thalomid), lenalidomide (Revlimid), or pomalidomide (Pomalyst) is usually used to boost the immune system. Lenalidomide is similar to thalidomide, but it has fewer side effects. It also appears to be more potent. Chemotherapy Chemotherapy is an aggressive form of drug therapy that helps kill fast-growing cells, including myeloma cells. Chemotherapy drugs are often given in high doses, especially before a stem cell transplant. The medications may be given intravenously or taken in pill form. Corticosteroids Corticosteroids, such as prednisone and dexamethasone, are often used to treat myeloma. They can balance the immune system by reducing inflammation in the body, so they’re often effective in destroying myeloma cells. They can be taken in pill form or given intravenously. Radiation Therapy Radiation therapy uses strong beams of energy to damage myeloma cells and stop their growth. This type of treatment is sometimes used to kill myeloma cells quickly in a certain area of the body. For example, it may be done when a cluster of abnormal plasma cells form a tumor called a plasmacytoma that causes pain or destroys bone. Stem Cell Transplants Stem cell transplants involve replacing diseased bone marrow with healthy bone marrow from a donor. Before the procedure, blood-forming stem cells are collected from your blood. The multiple myeloma is then treated with radiation therapy or high doses of chemotherapy. Once the diseased tissue can be destroyed, the stem cells can be infused into your body, where they move into the bones and start rebuilding bone marrow. Alternative medicine has become a popular way to cope with the symptoms of multiple myeloma and the side effects of treatment for the condition. While they can’t treat multiple myeloma, you may want to talk to your doctor about: Acupuncture Aromatherapy Massage Meditation Relaxation methods You should discuss any alternative therapies with your doctor before trying them to ensure they’re safe for your health.

Hi, by your history it sounds like fibrocystic changes, which is normal developmental changes. But get it examined by a surgeon to be sure. There is no immediate need of mammography. It can be decided after proper examination. If need be prefer ultrasound over mammography, if age less than 35 years and reverse for age more than 35 years. Regards sahil.

Her breast produces liquid white discharge during love-making sessions, when pressed with even little pressure. Only the left breast. Is it anything to be concerned about?

Normal nipple discharge more commonly occurs in both nipples and is often released when the nipples are compressed or squeezed (nipples may secrete fluid when they are stimulated or squeezed during love making). Some women who are concerned about breast secretions may actually cause it to worsen. They do this by repeatedly squeezing their nipples to check for nipple discharge. In these instances, leaving the nipples alone for a while may help the condition to improve. So no problem in your case. It is normal---------------------

Mr. Lybrate-user, sugar substitutes like saccharine, aspartame and sucralose (splenda), all these are equally bad. The recent studies on sucralose confirm that it affects intestinal bacteria, reduces them by 50 % and leads to various problems. The earlier ones like aspartame is also not safe. Whether cancers are caused or not is a different matter, but better to avoid them. These lead to weight gain and contribute metabolic syndrome. Please make habit to avoid artficial sweeteners completely. Thanks.

A number of studies suggest that current use of OC’s appears to slightly increase the risk of breast cancer, especially among younger women. But for short courses it does not harm u. Women who use OC’s have reduced risks of ovarian and endometrial cancer. This protective effect increases with the length of time oral contraceptives are used.

Breast cancer can occur from any age usually after 25 years. It is more common after the age of 40 years. The symptoms include nipple discharge, and swelling. The ladies are advised to do breast self examination by standing in front of the mirror and noting for any changes. Also, some screening tests like mammography are indicated. If there are any symptoms, please describe them in detail so that I can suggest tests and help you further.
