Family History of Cancer? - Opt for a Preventive Health Check

Family History of Cancer? - Opt for a Preventive Health Check

The rising incidences of cancer have made it important for us to be vigilant about our health. It has been proven medically that if cancer is detected at an early stage -stage I & II , then the chances of cure and treatment along with full recovery are very high. For early cancer detection & for people at greater risk of cancer, PHC-Preventive Health Care plays a major role. Preventive Health Check is particularly important for the people who have a family history of cancer.

Hereditary Cancers:

Almost all cancers are caused by damage or mutation in their genes, which, may be acquired from environmental exposure, dietary factors, hormones or through normal aging. In 90% of cases, these genes are not passed from parents to children. These are known as sporadic mutations and the cancers that they cause are called as sporadic cancers. But 5-10% of cancers are caused by gene mutations which are inherited from one or both parents & passed on to the children .These are hereditary or germline mutations & these cancers are known as hereditary or familial cancers.

People /children, who carry gene mutations have a higher risk of developing cancer at an earlier age or at some point in their life time.

Some of the common such cancers, which run in families, are:

  • Breast cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Colo-rectal cancer (cancer of large intestine )
  • Prostate cancer
  • Lymphoma
  • Melanoma
  • Retinoblastoma

Breast, ovary & colo-rectal carcinoma have well established gene mutation studies.Mutation of BRCA 1 & BRCA2 Genes is responsible for 85% of hereditary breast cancers.

Estimated life time risk for developing breast cancer in woman with BRCA1 & BRCA2 mutation is 56-87% & risk for developing-bilateral /contralatral breast cancer is about 20-40%. These statistics make a preventive health check for women with breast cancer history in their family a necessity. Mutation in these genes confers about 20-40% increased life time risk for developing ovarian cancer. Hence the presence of gene mutation for breast cancer can trigger ovarian cancer.

However as stated above, other environmental and lifestyle factors can also cause breast cancer other than genetic BRCA1 & BRCA 2 gene mutations.

  • Increasing age
  • Early menarche
  • Late menopause
  • Nulliparity
  • First birth after the age of 30
  • Atypical lobular hyperplasia or Atypical ductal hyperplasia
  • Prior breast biopsies
  • Long term postmenopausal estiogen replacement
  • Early exposure to ionizing radiation

Other Familial Cancers:

Familial cancer syndromes associated with colo-rectal cancers are familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP).It is an autosomal dominant inherited syndrome with more than 90% penetrance, manifested by hundreds of polyps developed by late adolescence .The risk of developing invasive cancer is almost 100% .So such patients should start getting colonoscopy at an earlier age- say by 20yr of age & should undergo Total Collectomy on development of significant polyps .

Other familial cancer syndromes are hereditary non -Polyposis Colo Rectal Cancer (HNPCC), Gardner's Syndrome, Turcot's Syndrome, Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome, Juvenile Polyposis.

Cancer Assessment & Conclusion:

For breast cancer risk assessment, we have the GAIL model & IBIS model, which take into consideration ,all the risk factors, apart from BRCA1 & BRCA 2 gene mutation. These models calculate the over all life time risk of development of breast cancer for any lady. For this, you have to consult a specialist experienced in area of hereditary cancers, cancer risk assessment, genetic counseling & testing.

To conclude, all people with cancers in their family should undergo genetic testing & counseling, to detect high risk individuals should take adequate measures & treatment.

The pain you r having is because of engorgement of milk in the breast, if baby is not drinking then you should milk it out or use breast pump. Take some painkillers. Get this problem persists then get urself examined by surgeon.

Dear Lybrate user, Some bleeding may be there for about 4-5 days after D&C. If bleeding is not on the decreasing trend and continues beyond 1 week, it is worthwhile to get ultrasound of lower abdomen done. At times, some products of conception can remain inside uterus.

Hello there, whole body itching could be due to some Allergy or any skin problems. But if Vaginal itching is there then fungal or other infection maybe the cause. In case of severity you need to see the doctor.

Pregnancy and Its Effect on Women's Sexual Desire

PG Dip(psycosexual diseases), MBBS

Pregnancy and Its Effect on Women's Sexual Desire

Did you know that pregnancy can alter your libido, since it is influenced by biological, psychological and social factors? It is no surprise that the numerous hormonal changes and the emotional roller-coaster that a woman experiences during pregnancy, can change her desire for sex. Of course, no two woman's sexual drive is the same and hence the matter is very individual and unique for every woman. 

But some common bodily trends are observed during the various trimesters of pregnancy.

1. During the first trimester of pregnancy, some women are put off by sex when the symptoms of nausea, vomiting and tiredness kick in. This can be blamed on the rise in the levels of the hormones estrogen and progesterone. A woman would rather just catch up on lost sleep and lie in bed by herself, getting all the rest she can.

2. The second trimester brings relief in the symptoms felt during the first trimester. Some women experience a surge in their libido, as energy levels improve and they feel relatively more relaxed. 

3. The third trimester brings with it weight gain, back pain and other symptoms which can lower a woman's sexual drive again.

4. Besides the typical changes that are brought on in the different trimesters, quite a few women report a heightened desire for sex. With all those pregnancy hormones flowing, it's understandable. During pregnancy, a woman's breasts get bigger and more sensitive. The vulva also becomes engorged from extra blood flow and even more sensitive, which could lead to more enjoyable pregnancy sex. 

5. Another fact is that, with no longer having to worry about contraception during this time, both partners welcome the fact that they can have sex anytime they want or without worrying about the obligations of ovulation. 

So basically, a woman can easily embrace her sexual desire during this special time of pregnancy. As long as a doctor doesn't suggest otherwise, it is perfectly safe for a woman to revel in her new found desire and have sex with her partner until the baby arrives.

Does Watching Porn Together Really Help You Have a Better Sex Life?

Does Watching Porn Together Really Help You Have a Better Sex Life?
Does watching porn together help you have a better sex life?

It is often said that the couples who do most day-to-day activities together are more committed towards each other. But does the same stand true when it comes to watching sexual content or pornography? Well, research certainly seems to indicate that, with a whopping 96% couples watch pornography together. Here are some pros and cons of viewing porn with your partner.

PROs-

1. It may help you both in discovering your sexual preferences
It is important for both you and your partner to be on the same page when it comes to discovering your sexuality and figuring out each other’s sexual preferences. Just like adolescent sex education, pornography too educates you about the mechanics of sexual play. It is a useful tool that brings out the kinky side in you and makes you more open to discussions on things that pique your curiosity in the bedroom. As and when you see such visual imagery, it may appeal to you enough to try it out with your partner. Discuss such desires with your partner. This may help you in discovering what really turns you and your partner on.

2. It may help you in maintaining sexual fidelity in your relationship
Watching porn together with your partner can potentially increase the intensity of physical attraction between the two of you.This, as a result, leads to greater gratification for both of you, and if you are sexually satisfied by your partner, you are less likely to look for pleasure outside your relationship. Also, it is way healthier to indulge in it as a team rather than discovering your partner watching porn alone.

3. It may help both of you to pick up newer positions
Porn has the ability to expose you to new and exciting positions you never knew. About 58% of couples who viewed pornography claimed that the shared activity had a positive effect on their sex lives. New moves and unique positions are known to spice up sex lives. Men can surprise their women (or vice versa) with an exotic move or two. Porn may also help in decreasing shyness and in opening up your minds so that you can pick up and practice new moves.

CONs-

Although porn viewing may consist of potential benefits, it may also affect your relationship adversely. When watched in excess, porn may cause certain problems in your relationship, which are-

1. It might set up wrong expectations in reality
Porn movies give you a warped view of what beauty is. It may cause you to have unrealistically higher expectations from your partner, whereas the reality may not match your imaginative hopes and standards. As a result, it may also lead to frustration, aggression and infidelity.

2. It may lead to pornography addiction
The visual and physical appeal of porn may impact a person’s mental or social well-being. Increased porn viewing may hint at a person’s social isolation, loss of interest in career and other activities etc. It may also make you highly dependent on it, as it allows immediate sexual gratification. As a result the usage may go out of control and relate directly to compulsive behaviour.

3. It may affect your sexual drive and libido
Making love to your partner in real-life may become a foreign concept, as porn can decrease your physical drive with the possibility of making you sexually lazy. Porn may also have certain side effects including probable loss of libido and even difficulty in lasting longer. It may also make regular intercourse seem boring as it may not have the same sensual and visual appeal as pornography.
After realising its various pros and cons if you want to use porn, it is advisable to not use it as replacement but as an accessory for better sexual well-being.

Hello Dr. Kya pregnancy mei ultrasound safe h essay baby ko koi nuksaan to nae hota. Please tell.
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Ultrasound (also called sonogram) is a prenatal test offered to most pregnant women. It uses sound waves to show a picture of your baby in the uterus (womb. Most women get an ultrasound in their second trimester at 16 to 20 weeks of pregnancy. There is no harm to the womb because of ultrasound scan. Take care.

Hi there is always a chance of spreading infection from one to other. Multiple partners means chances of infections are high over to that threesome. So no gynaecologist will advise in the interest of all. Regards.

Success of tubal recanalization depends upon the the method of tubal ligation. Recanalization is most successful when ligation is done by laparoscopy using fallope rings or clips Secondly the success depends upon the length of tube after recanalization, if the tubal length is>4 cm success rate is up to 75% Tubal recanalization is microsurgical procedure done by open or laproscopic surgery.

Hi. My boyfriend and I haven't had sex. But he ejaculated when top of me in a bath tub. It was not near my vulva though. The water was cool. It was my 21st day of my cycle. This was one week back. Is there any chance of pregnancy and if there is anything I can do to terminate it.

Hi. My boyfriend and I haven't had sex. But he ejaculated when top of me in a bath tub. It was not near my vulva thou...
Even if he didn't ejaculate inside you it's quite possible that the sperms swim into your cervix, and cold water always promotes the life of the sperms. Had you contacted us with a day or two of the incidence we could have given you appropriate medical advices now that you have crossed the seventh day even the emergency pill won't work for you. Hence wait for a week get a home pregnancy test done if it's positiv then go to a good competent gynecologist and get a chemical termination done which can be done up to 7 weeks only. It's will be like your normal p riots but a. Little heavy flow. Henceforth be careful as protection is needed for you to prevent sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies too. Good luck.

Yes you might have got pregnant. But since you r saying that you had spotting that means there was abortion but not complete abortion. U should do USG to confirm whether there is any foetal context still in your uterus. U can msg me on my consult if you have any concern.
