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. If you want to discuss this further, feel free to contact me for the same.

Mild difference in size is normal. If significant difference in size, better to see a general surgeon. They would examine you and if needed ask for an ultrasound. There could be multiple causes of scrotal swelling. Hernia, hydrocele, traumatic hematocele, spermatocele, varicocele and testicular tumour amongst the main causes. If testicular Cancer is suspected, then testicular tumour markers i.e. AFP, B-HCG and LDH would be done. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

The ulcers are a common side effect of ahead and neck radiation. See the Radia oncologist who is giving the radiation. They would prescribe medications for the oral ulcers and also give lignocaine viscous if severe. If the ulcers are not tolerable, they may consider a break in the radiation. Continue the swallowing and the mouth opening exercises throughout the radiation. As good diet helps to tolerate radiation well. If oral intake is poor they may consider a nasogastric tube or rarely a feeding gastrostomy. Hopefully dental prophylaxis was done before radiation Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

I am a male. I have a painless lump in my right breast. It has been increasing in size over the last few years. Though I have consulted a couple of surgeons, but haven't received any cure for the same. I would need advice and guidance.

Please see a breast surgeon. They would examine you and if needed do a mammogram or an ultrasound. The most common cause of breast lump in a male is gynaecomastia. It is usually pubertal in young males and it regresses spontaneously. It could also be due to hormonal imbalance between testosterone and estrogen or increased prolactin level. The cause of imbalance is mostly drugs like anabolic steroids, some antiandeogenic drugs, antipsychotics, diuretics like spironolactone, omeprazole etc. Also testicular tumours and liver failure could lead to the hormonal imbalance. Other causes of lump in a male breast need to be ruled out like lipoma, fibroma, bony or chest wall tumour and rarely male breast cancer. Feel free to come and see me or to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

Pain in the breasts could be due to cyclical mastalgia, fibrocystic disease, hormonal changes due to OC pills or pregnancy, granulomatous mastitis, musculoskeletal pain, abscess, cysts and rarely cancer. The treatment would depend upon the cause. Better to see a breast surgeon who would examine you, ask for an ultrasound and SOS core biopsy if needed.

What day of your cycle is it? If you have missed period then get a urinary pregnancy test. Ipill may cause delayed menses in a few patients. Also failure of the ipill may lead to pregnancy for which you need to consult an obstetrician Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

Yes. It will decrease the risk if you quit. It takes about 10-15 years for the risk to go down to that of a normal person. Hence earlier you quit the better. Also avoid supari, tobacco and alcohol in any form Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

Pain in the breasts could be due to cyclical mastalgia, fibrocystic disease, hormonal changes due to OC pills or pregnancy, granulomatous mastitis, musculoskeletal pain, costichondritis, abscess, cysts and rarely cancer. The treatment would depend upon the cause. Costichondritis does cause increased pain during breathing or coughing. Better to see a breast surgeon who would examine you, ask for an ultrasound with mammogram (not in young patients) and SOS core biopsy if needed. If you want to further discuss your symptoms, feel free to contact me directly.
