Breast consists of breast tissue and fat. The genetic make up of each person determines the size of the breasts. The breast tissue is responsive to the hormonal stimulus, hence there is increase in the size of breast during pregnancy, lactating, premenstrual period, due to OC Pills and HRT. The progesterone temporarily increases the breast size and has protective effect on breast cancer as seen with pregnancy. Estrogen has lasting effects on the breast tissue but also increases density of breast which not only increases the risk of cancer but also causes difficulty in detecting the breast cancers by mammogram. There are various oils and massages advertised for increasing the size of breast, but I have never seen any of them working. One thing that works is pectoral exercise, which increases the bulk of the underlying muscle, causing prominence of the overlying breast. It increases the cup size from A cup to may be A+ or B. If you want significant increase in size the options are lipofilling, but requires you to undergo the surgery multiple times and also only modest increase in size occurs. The second option is implants which is the most commonly performed procedure for breast augmentation worldwide. Most of the breasts have mild inequality in size and shape which is normal. Hence we say that €œthey are sisters, not twins. Sometimes underdevelopment of one breast leads to inequality of the size of breast, but it would be functionally normal. If it is a mild difference and you are not worried about it, then using padding on one side would solve the problem for most of the patients. If the smaller breast is of adequate cup size, then some patients prefer to reduce the size of the bigger breast. This is done via a surgery called as a reduction mammoplasty using a wise pattern skin incision. This leaves one with an anchor shaped scar (it is cosmetically good as most of the scar is in lower part and around areola). If you prefer the larger breast then implant for the smaller one is an option. But if the difference is small, then you may need implants for both breasts to match the size. If you want to discuss this further, feel free to contact me for the same.

My sister age 39 have duct carcinoma in left breast. Which treatment for her. Operation is compulsory. Or any other treatment. Please Suggest as fast. Bones scan and other reports are normal.

She needs a proper evaluation by a breast surgeon or a surgical oncologist, which entails a history and clinical examination with a mammography and an ultrasound if not done already. Mammography gives an idea about the whole breast and Opposite Breast. I prefer a core Biopsy, which gives an idea about the grade, type and immunohistochemistry of cancer, which is important for getting an idea about the prognosis and deciding the line of treatment. (I am not comfortable operating based on FNAC as it has false negative’s aswell as false positives) If Cancer is locally advanced or some times in large operable wanting breast conservation surgery or some early Breast cancers which are Triple negative or Her 2 +ve, then upfront chemotherapy is preferred before surgery. If locally advanced or > 5 cms then we prefer doing a pet scan or a CECT abdomen and pelvis with a bone scan to rule out spread of cancer. Surgery for the breast may be lumpectomy or a mastectomy. Axillary surgery may be sentinel node biopsy or an Axillary nodal clearance. If conservation then the reconstruction could be with oncoplasty which approximates the Breast tissue to prevent deformity (but leads to smaller breast if large lump excised and needs mammoplasty of that breast as well as reduction of Opposite Breast), or using the latest chest wall perforator flaps (new technique to avoid deformity or reduction of breast size especially after a large lumpectomy in a small Breast, which I have learnt in UK and is becoming quite popular there as the size of both breasts remains same) After the surgery, chemotherapy is given (if not given before or courses not completed) the type of chemotherapy or targeted therapy varies according to the report. All lumpectomy and mastectomy for large and node positive cancers need radiation therapy too, which is given after the chemotherapy. Also depending upon the immunohistochemistry, targeted therapy (transtuzumab) May be advised for 1 year and hormonal therapy for 5-10 years. The follow up would be with annual mammogram, clinical examination with some blood tests. If found to be metastatic then treatment would be mainly chemotherapy and hormonal therapy, with surgery for good responders or in cases of bleeding, where radiation is the other option. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to share the reports or discuss this further.

Hi my mother is 61. She detects brest cancer. I am from Malda, Westbengal.wht should I do now? Any homeopathy doctor for remedy? Or I should visit oncologist. Cost of total treatment approx.

The cure rates for breast cancer of early stage is in range of 90-95 % depending upon the type of cancer and the immunohistochemistry with proper treatment. If locally advanced, still the cure rates are 75-85%. In metastatic setting the cure rates are lower. She needs a proper evaluation by a breast surgeon, which entails a history and clinical examination with a mammography and an ultrasound if not done already. Mammography gives an idea about the whole breast and Opposite Breast. I prefer a core Biopsy, which gives an idea about the grade, type and immunohistochemistry of cancer, which is important for getting an idea about the prognosis and deciding the line of treatment.

If found to be metastatic then treatment would be mainly chemotherapy and hormonal therapy, with surgery for good responders or in cases of bleeding, where radiation is the other option. The cost of surgery in my hospital is around 1.25 lacs. But if non affording then we have charity cell, who will assess your financial status based on your salary slip and income certificate and if weaker section, they may provide concession of 10-50% on the whole bill. Radiation can also cost around 2 lacs (if weaker section around 60k). Chemotherapy cost depends on the type of chemo according to the report. Will range from 1.2 lacs to 8 lacs depending upon the report of the patient. (if early cancer, we may be able to avoid chemotherapy) Feel free to contact me directly if you want to share the reports or discuss this further.

It is better to show it to a Breast Surgeons a Surgical oncologist. They would take a detailed history and examine you and if need be, ask for an ultrasound examination. From your history, it looks more like a musculoskeletal pain. Fibrocystic changes are very common and are common cause of breast pain especially cyclical. Some times some of the cysts may enlarge causing a lot of pain, which need to be aspirated. Also they need to rule out other causes of pain like ill fitting bra, trauma, costichondritis, abscess amongst a few. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

My dad s suffering my lung carcinoma stage 3b. His right vocal chord s palsy and not able to talk what is the remedy for it.

Oncologist, Mumbai
What is the cause of the cord palsy? Is it an apical mass or a cervical lymph node, which is pressing on the right recurrent nerve? What treatment has been started for the lung cancer? What is the Tumor stage and Nodal stage? If the palsy is due to the tumor or node, then the hoarseness will decrease as the treatment works. Sometimes opposite vocal cord compensates for the palsy and voice improves. If you share his reports of imaging, Biopsy and the treatment started, I would be able to opine better. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

How much time one should expose himself in sun and how one get skin cancer from sun I expose myself during 9 am to 9: 30 am I am getting moles on my face is due to sunlight thanks.

Use a sun protection screen if you are staying in sun for a long time. The chances of skin cancer is quite low in Indiana because of the dark skin with melanin, which provides protection from the same. See a dermatologist for the moles, which he would examine and Biopsy if any suspicious changes of melanoma like ulceration. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

Ayurvedic treatments for colon cancer/ blood passing through stool, weight loss, fatigue experience. Age- 65 years. No other complaints.

Better to show to a general surgeon or a gastroenterologist if you are having those symptoms. If bleeding, most commonly it is due to piles or fissure. If a local cause is found, they would treat the same. They would do a colonoscopy / upper GI Scopy if no local cause is found and Biopsy if a growth is seen. They may ask for CT scan and / or MRI if cancer detected. The cancer is curable in most of the cases if detected at an earlier stage. Many patients try alternative medicine and come to us when the stage has already advanced. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

I am a breast cancer survivor, since 4 years, now my left arm has swollen due to lymphedema. Please suggest any remedy for it. Left side did mastectomy.

I am a breast cancer survivor, since 4 years, now my left arm has swollen due to lymphedema. Please suggest any remed...
The lymph nodes in the armpit are the first point where any infection of the hand gets controlled. Hence all the research into screening to detect early cancers, which can be treated with sentinel node biopsy, which prevents Lymphedema in most of the patients. If axillary clearance is done for breast cancer, the chances of arm swelling increases. We ask patients to avoid any trauma to that arm as in can incite cellulitis and leave residual edema in the arm. Also if any minor injury, we prescribe prophylactic antibiotics for the same. Treatment of Lymphedema is according to the severity. Obesity interferes with the treatment of Lymphedema. Hence if overweight, weight loss is advised. Mild Lymphedema usually responds to limb elevation with compression stockings, exercises and skin care. Moderate Lymphedema usually requires in addition to above, Manual lymphatic drainage, which is a massage like therapy performed by specially trained physiotherapists. Severe Lymphedema needs Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT), which includes lymph drainage, multilayer compression bandaging, elevation, remedial exercise, and skin care. Those who donot respond may be offered Lymphapress, which is an intermittent pneumatic compression device. Whichever therapy is used, compliance is required which is the most difficult part. Surgery is recommended only for the refractory edema. It may be in the form of 1) lymphatic bypass procedure (lymphoma venous bypass or lymph node transfer) for very select patients without fibrosis and venous hypertension or 2) tissue reduction (Liposuction or direct tissue excision) Please ask your breast surgeon to refer you to a good physiotherapist first and if need be to a plastic surgeon with experience in Lymphedema surgery Feel free to contact to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further. We have a team of physiotherapist with plastic surgeon who does thes surgeries and the lymphapress machine aswell.
