I have breast tumor. After operation its not cure. Some time painful. Please help me.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
Madam, you claim to have had a tumor in breast and got it operated, tumor per se is a vague term for a lay person, in medical terms it indicates malignancy unless specified as benign (innocent). It is mandatory on the part of the surgeon to send the excised tumor for a biopsy, if so you should have mentioned the nature of tumor excised. In view of incomplete information I cannot give you any opinion.

My grandmother is suffering from breast cancer. Is there is medicine without chemo?

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist, Aurangabad
Hello. Whether a patient receives chemotherapy or not in case of breast cancer will totally depend on the stage of disease at presentation to the doctor. If your doctor has prescribed chemotherapy, there are very good chances that it is mandatory. There are very few but well identified instances when chemotherapy is either not required or can be avoided safely or avoided in view of risk of side effects being more possible than the benefit. Other than stage, the things that influence this decision, are age, any other diseases like diabetes or high blood pressure, etc. The biology of cancer e. G. If er, pr positive disease and whether the disease has already spread but not causing any functional harm. Such a decision has to be taken by a well learned and well experienced doctor, along with an informed decision. From patient. I can guide more only with more of patients details.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking guidance here. Can you throw some light on the cancer (s) that you see in your family? I would advise you to get in touch with a cancer genetic counselor who will help you understand the hereditary component appropriately and also advise on what can be done to prevent it. A cytogenetic analysis will help assess the risk, if any, precisely and the same can then be managed appropriately. As a generic prophylactic measure, however, its advisable that one adopts a healthy diet & lifestyle, and remains socially active throughout, further details of which can be suitably arrived upon, basis the study results. Hope this clarifies. Take care and all the very best.

Dont take water after 8 pm, avoid evening tea/cofee/juice/liquor, wear loose and comfortable garments, protect yourself from cold environment, go to toilet immediately before going to bed. Also find out the usual time for urination during night and set an alarm just before that time to avoid bed wetting. Finally get your blood sugar level and specific gravity of urine checked.

I am 18 years old and I am an boy. I have a big lumb on my right chest since 2 years. The left one is normal but the right chest appears like a breast.

Advanced Aesthetics, M.Ch - Plastic Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Indore
To the best of our knowledge no medicines or creams work to decrease the breast size. Male breast or gynecomastia reduction. Gynecomastia is treatable by surgery. There is no medical treatment. It is a one day out patient surgery with very gratifying results. It boosts self esteem also. It is a 1 day hospital stay surgery. It takes 1 day for consultation and investigation and 2nd day surgery and discharge in 3-4 hours. The Dr. Can examine and tell you what is the problem, gynacomastia has a breast tissue and a fat component. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. There is no medication which can give the results. Surgery is the only answer. The surgery is almost painless because there are enough medications to keep the pain under control.

Can I get my 11 year old doctor vaccinated for Cervical Cancer? What is the cost of the vaccination?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, you can ofcourse get your 11 years old daughter vaccinated for cervical cancer vaccine. Cervical cancer vaccines prevent individuals from cervical cancers caused by hpv viruses and have to be administered to adolescent girls prior to exposure. Usually three shots are given 1, 2 6 months. Two main brands are available and the cost varies from 6 to 8 thousand approx. For three injections it may vary from company to company. One must remember that cervical cancers may be caused by multiple factors and hpv is one of them. Others may be hormonal factors like early menarchy, too many children, poor hygiene of local area, late menopause, early marriages, immuno- compromised conditions, smoking etc, so one has to still go for routine screening by pap smear despite vaccination.

Hi, Doc, my father aged 75 years diagnosed with lung cancer and the size of mass is 140mmx110mmx116 mm and lab report is small cell carcinoma. Now a days they feel anxiety and pain in left side and the mass has moved out from lung to upper side of chest and we can see in the upper side of chest. We don't want to go for chemo as per age barrier. Is there any other drug or medicine which can reduce the pain and anxiety? And also is it possible to operate and remove the mass? Thank you.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, first and foremost, I would advise you to meet up an oncosurgeon, experienced in thoracic oncology cases, in person. He/ she can do the needful assessment and can advise further on whether a surgery is feasible at this stage and the prognosis thereof. In general, the treatment outlook is influenced by a host of factors including stage and its associated comorbidities, age, vitality, gene expressions, chromosomes affected, histopathological grading and the type of cancer etc all. Usually, small cell lung cancers are difficult to treat than the non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) ones. However, an integrative treatment with suitable alternative medicines can help alleviate quality of life issues including pain, anxiety etc all, and also help improve clinical outcomes as possible contextually. Post consultation with your oncologist, you can revert with all relevant diagnostics, treatment history, and the conventional treatment plan, if any, etc all for further naturopathic traction from my end. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely,
