Most breast lumps are not cancers, but they need proper evaluation which may include imaging and biopsy. include fibroadenoma, papilloma, cyst etc they are not life threatening certain bening conditions increase the chances of breast cancers so evaluation is must Risk Factors for Breast Cancer : Lifestyle Related/ Modifiable Risk Factors: Obese/ overweight Pregnancy > 30 years: womens having no children or having first pregnancy > 30 years have higher risk than those having children < 30 years No breast feeding: breast milk feeding to children is protective for breast cancer risk Hormone replacemnet therapy after menopause Alcohol Non Modifiable Risk Factors/ Not related to life style: Gender: female Age Family history personal history of breast cancer Genetic factors : most common are BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutation leading to increased risk breast and ovarian cancer Benign proliferative lesions with or without atypia: like moderate ductal hyperplasia, atypical lobular hyperplasia, atypical ductal hyperplasia.

Please advise what medical tests one should take to check if there is cancer? My wife’s mother, paternal grandmother and paternal first cousin have been diagnosed with cancer in last 2 years - tongue, lung and breast respectively. I fear if my wife will get something. How do I test and check for it proactively?

FHNS, MS ENT
Oncologist, Indore
All the three cancers are not related genetically. So do not worry. Just have a medical check up for any symtoms. There are thousands of battery of test to predict and diagnose cancer but virtually all of them are insignificant for screening.

My father age is 59 was suffering from tongue cancer stage 2 And he is taking ayurvedic medicine what food he want to take please tell best food and best Fruit please tell good solution to cure.

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS
Oncologist,
Dear lybrate user, sorry to reply off topic but you should know that stage 2 tongue cancer has a higher chance of cure if they are treated in time. It will require surgery with or without radiation therapy afterwards. We have come across thousands of patients with such cancers who have been effectively treated with this treatment. If left untreated it will progress and once its stage goes up it will become very difficult or even impossible to cure later. So I would strongly advise you to consult a surgical or radiation oncologist without delay.

I was having breast cancer in 2010. I was operated. But now my right hand is swollen. please help me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Mam, post breast cancer treatment due to lymphnode dissection, lymphodema of arm is present. You have to do regular arm exercises to reduce edema or swelling. Apart from this you can use arm sleeves or stockings or tie three layered crepe bandage. Some lymphodema clinics are available in cancer hospital where physiotherapy is done for this and lymphodema pumps can be used. There are surgical options for edema not relieved by above means.

I feel pain in left side of groin area often in mornings and while having a walk. I only get relieved after resting for sometime. I consulted a urology doctor, treatment did not work. My prostate is normal. I want to know whether it is a neurological, orthopedic, or related to urology. THANKS IN ADVANCE.

Respected lybrate-user hi your case requires clinical evaluation dear but from your presentation I assume it could be muscular / developing hernia / small ureteric stone in few cases. I will advise to get an ultrasonography of abdomen pelvis done. Thanks regards.

Common Symptoms of Breast Cancer

Common Symptoms of Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a type of a cancerous infection that develops in the skin cells of the breast. This condition is more commonly diagnosed after you have skin cancer and is more common in women than men. There are certain signs to identify this disease, which are as follows.

1. Breast lumps - Lumps are patches of skin that occur due to the thickening and swelling of the skin. Breast lumps is a very common phenomenon for women but that does not always lead to a breast cancer; however, frequent and reoccurring instances of the same increases the risk of breast cancer. A breast lump is easily identifiable through the naked eye as it looks different from the surrounding tissues.

2. Blood discharges - The nipple is one of the most sensitive areas in the human body. In case of women, it is meant to emit milk during pregnancy, in order to feed the infant externally. A probable symptom of breast cancer can also be a frequent discharge of blood from the nipple without any visible damage or injury.

3. Breast changes - If you are experiencing any visible changes in the size, appearance or shape of the breast, then it is an indicative sign that you may have breast cancer. Thus, it is of paramount importance that you observe, touch and physically examine your breast regularly for changes. If there is any major change detected then it is advisable to consult a doctor.

4. Inverted nipple - The tip of the nipple is generally bulging and pointing outwards both in cases of men and women. But sometimes the tip of the nipple is pushed inside due to excessive suction caused by the skin tissues present inside the breast around the nipple area. This suction forces the nipple to grow inwards which is abnormal and might harm the breast and skin in various ways.

However, apart from these main symptoms, some other signs are also there that increase your chances of being diagnosed with breast cancer. They are redness or pitting of the skin over your breast like an orange, peeling or scaling of the pigmented area around the nipple, dimpling of the skin on the breasts, and such others.

Am I more at risk if my relatives have cancer? What do cancer stages and grades mean?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Certain type of cancers run in family like for females breast ovarian etc otherwise sometimes male breast cancer, adrenal glands sometimes hereditary colon cancers etc long list but most of the cancers diagnosed are life style related and tobacco related so inheritance of cancer will depend on type of cancer your family was suffering from. Stage means the size and the spread of disease. Grade means differentiation from normal cells (well/moderate/poor differentiation) indicating the prognosis.
