I have a server pain in my left breast before 14 days of my periods. I had mammography test the test was normal but showing thick tissue around the nipple area as compared to other parts of breast. After my period the pain and tenderness is gone but I felt a lump around my nipple. The lump is painful when pressed. Is there any serious issue?

Better to see a Surgical oncologist or a breast surgeon. They would examine you and if needed ask for an ultrasound. Ya Pain in the breasts could be due to cyclical mastalgia, fibrocystic disease, hormonal changes due to OC pills or pregnancy, granulomatous mastitis, periductal mastitis, abscess, cysts and rarely cancer. The treatment would depend upon the cause. Most common cause is cyclical mastalgia due to fibrocystic changes, which usually resolve with time. Treatment may be given if severe pain. Abscess leads to throbbing pain with redness. Cyst may lead to pricking pain. Rupture of the same leads to throbbing pain. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

Better to see a Surgical oncologist or a breast surgeon. They would examine you and if needed ask for an ultrasound or a mammogram. Dryness of nipple can lead to inflammation and pain. They need to rule out dermatitis and Paget’s disease. Pain in the breasts could be due to cyclical mastalgia, fibrocystic disease, hormonal changes due to OC pills or pregnancy, granulomatous mastitis, periductal mastitis, abscess, cysts and rarely cancer. The treatment would depend upon the cause. Most common cause is cyclical mastalgia due to fibrocystic changes, which usually resolve with time. Treatment may be given if severe pain. Also pain anteriorly could be due to costichondritis which is inflammation of the rib and cartilage junction. Abscess leads to throbbing pain with redness Cyst may lead to pricking pain. Rupture of the same leads to throbbing pain. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

My mother had adenocarcinoma of lung which was diagnosed on 5/6 when pet ct was performed and has egfr mutation in exon 19. She also has neurological symptoms like vision loss, hearing loss, vomiting and headache. There is suspicion of metastatic to brain but csf cytology has been negative for 5 consecutive times at regular intervals. How can we confirm if it has metastized or no?

MRI brain was done? Usually it is diagnosed on mri rather than CSF cytology. Pet ct is not good to detect brain mets. What is the pet report? What is the local stage and any mets? If metastatic or advanced inoperable, since the egfr mutation is present, she is a candidate for Geftinib or preferably osimertinib. I would be able to opine better if you could share all her reports. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

It may be a fibroadenoma or a fibrocystic change. Cancer is quite rare at this age. Better to see a breast surgeon who will examine her clinically if not already done. Also wait for the ultrasound report. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

Depends on which cancer you have. There are many alternative medicines given for cancer in India without any proven efficacy. Many contain steroids which would suppress most of the cancers for a short period of time without curing it. It may come back with a vengeance. I would be able to opine better if you could share your reports and details. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

First stage oral cancer is curable with good prognosis. There is less chance of recurrence. Hopefully the treatment was proper and completed. But you need regular follow up to detect recurrence earlier if it occurs. Also there is chance of second primary due to field cancerisation. You need to quit habits like tobacco, alcohol or supari if any. I would be able to opine regarding the stage and treatment of your cancer better if you send me the reports. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

Can piles lead to any major disease like cancer etc what might happen when go untreated?

Can piles lead to any major disease like cancer etc what might happen when go untreated?
Better to see a general surgeon or a colorectal surgeon for the same. Piles can progress if untreated and then instead of the OPD procedure like banding, surgery like hemorrhoidectomy (open or stapled) would be needed. Also chances of complications like thrombosis piles and severe bleeding increases. Piles does not cause cancer, but piles may rarely be a sign of existing rectal cancer which compresses the veins leading to piles. Hence sigmoidoscopy is recommended to rule out the same for all piles Patient. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

Cysts can cause pain due to stretch due to increase in size or sometimes due to rupture. Aspiration provides temporary relief, but the cyst usually reforms in a few months. Hence aspiration is recommended only for symptomatic cysts. The cysts usually resolve spontaneously over a period of time. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.
