Hi Ali... Usually the breast become larger during feeding and the once the feeding stops they become smaller... So I think if there are no issue then you need not worry... once she stops feeding they will both become similar...

My aunt is diagnosed to have abdominal cancer, she have got her abscess removed after surgery. What kind of care is required after or during the chemotherapy session.

Plenty of rest, high protein nutritious diet and she should stay positive. Avoid raw fruits and vegetables during chemotherapy and for 10 days after that. You can stew the apples for 15 sec in the microwave and give. If she has vomitting don't stop diet. Give Cerelac which is baby food hence easy to digest. Add black salt to all juices.

Initial treatment is surgery with removal of lymph nodes if they are also involved. Later a radiation and chemo IV or oral may be suggested. This will also be based on the ER, PR and Her 2 scores of the biopsy taken to confirm the nature or type of cancer. More I would be able to suggest after the reports. Wish this helps.

Enlarged Prostate - 6 Warning Signs To Help You Detect It!

Enlarged Prostate - 6 Warning Signs To Help You Detect It!

The condition of enlarged prostate occurs due to the enlargement of a man’s prostate gland, with the passage in time. Also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), it is more common in men over the age of 60. Some cases might have symptoms and others may be symptomless. Although the causes are relatively unknown, it is evident that BPH is not a form of cancer, neither does it cause cancer. The prostate is located below the bladder and is responsible for producing the fluid needed by semen. The growth of the prostate tissue that is associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia begins near the inner prostate which is a tissue ring around the urethra. Its growth is generally inward.

Causes
It is of common knowledge that in males, the urine originates from the bladder and flows through the urethra. BPH is a condition where the prostate experiences a benign i.e. non cancerous enlargement which leads to blockage of urine flow through the urethra (the urinary duct). The resultant enlargement, caused due to the gradual multiplication of cells, subjects the urethra to extra pressure. Further narrowing of the urethra causes more contraction of the bladder, resulting in the urine being forcefully pushed out of the body.

With time, the condition leads to the bladder muscles gradually becoming thicker, stronger and oversensitive. Contraction occurs even due to the presence of small amounts of urine, giving rise to frequent needs of urination. At one point, the bladder muscle is unable to overcome the effects of the narrowed urethra. Due to this, urine does not pass properly and the urethra is not emptied.

Some of the common symptoms of enlarged prostate include:
1. Frequent urination
2. Urgency to urinate
3. Difficulty during urination
4. A slow or weak urinary stream
5. Requirement of extra effort to urinate
6. Interrupted sleep due to need of urination

Further risks
Sometimes, when the bladder is not emptied completely, a risk of urinary tract infections develops. Some other serious problems which can be a result of enlarged prostate include blood in urine, bladder stones as well as acute urinary retention (inability to urinate). In some rare cases, kidney and/or bladder damage might also result from such a condition. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Urologist.

Cancer is generally caused by abnormal uncontrolled growth of cells usually triggered by some carcinogens like tobacco alcohol pollution pesticides radiation exposure industrial affluent etc the cells become autonomous and uncontrolled and grow uncontrolled. We must avoid carcinogens and consume healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables. Blood cancer is caused by abnormal uncontrolled proliferation of one of the components of blood, mostly due to change in genes. Treatment is done by chemotherapy.

Hi, I appreciate you seeking help. When did you finish your chemo radiation cycles? assuming that you are getting intense pain in throat, at present, I shall only advise you to gargle with a warm solution of chamomile tea, lemon and honey, three times daily. Along with, you can also try warm saline gargling, with a pinch of fresh turmeric/ salt added to warm water. Do try hot steam inhalation (only) a couple of times daily and use a good humidifier in the bed room. However, I may be able to help you feel better still, if I get to know as to where exactly you stand today with respect to your cancer treatment.

All About Breast Cancer

Gynaecologist, Delhi
All About Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a type of cancer, which occurs due to the development of cancerous cells in breasts. Women are usually affected by breast cancer and breast cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer after skin cancer. Usually fatal if not diagnosed in its early stage, breast cancer is a very serious medical ailment. Read on more to find all about the different symptoms, causes, preventive measures and treatment of breast cancer.

Symptoms: Breast cancer has few distinct characteristics and if you have a few or all the following symptoms you could be more likely to suffer from breast cancer. 

  • The formation of a lump in your breast, which is different from the surrounding tissue and usually more thickened.
  • The discharge of bloody fluid  material from the nipples.
  • Sudden change of the size, shape and appearance of the breast.
  • Certain distinct changes to the skin over the breast for example an indentation in the skin similar to that of a dimple.
  • Appearance of an extra nipple which is inverted.
  • If the darkened area around the nipples known as the areola is flaking or peeling off. 

Causes: Studies and researches remain inconclusive on what causes breast cancer. Breast cancer occurs due to abnormal division of the cells located in the breast, which over time accumulate and form lumps. They
might spread to other parts of the body. Breast cancer is caused mainly due to a complex interaction of personal genetics, environment and lifestyle choices. Breast cancer can also be caused due to genetics as about 5% to 10% of cases are due to gene mutations which pass onto generations.

Risk factors: There are certain factors, which increase the probability of contracting breast cancer. Increasing age, personal and family history of breast cancer, obesity, radiation exposure, pregnancy at an older age, postmenopausal hormone therapy are some of the factors that increase the chances of breast cancer.

Treatment: Several forms of surgical methods exist to treat breast cancer. Depending on the condition and spread of the disease a suitable surgery is performed. These include mastectomy, lumpectomy, axillary lymph node dissection and removal of both breasts. Other forms of treatment include chemotherapy or the use of high doses of drugs to destroy cancerous cells. Radiation therapy where X-rays are used to destroy the cancer cells is also effective.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, you can go for annual cancer screening by getting yourself thoroughly examined By a clinician for any obvious lump, ulceration, prostatomegaly or any suspicious visible or palpable finding. You can do radiological investigation like chest xray, ultrasound abdomen. You can get blood checked for various cancer markers like PSA, CEA etc and routine blood, stool, urine examination. Depending on symptoms sigmoidoscopy and laryngoscopy can be done.

Hi my aunt is suffering from overeat cancer and the tumor size is 12x11x12 doesn't it can be treated by surgical method or radiation methods. She have pain lot.

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear, ovarian cancers are mostly treated by surgery. If surgery is not possible you use chemotherapy to understage the tumor after which the surgery becomes easy which is to be done in any case. Radiation therapy has a limited role. Once the tumor size is reduced the pain will also go which is essentially due to compression of vital organs.
