Hi. I am a female aged 27 years and married. I am having pain on the sides of my breasts. Please suggest what needs to be done and why its happening.

You should go to a doctor so that you can be examined. Pain in breasts just before menstruation is common and is usually harmless. However its best to be examined before any medication is started.

Usually ovarian cancer are treated with surgery and chemotherapy. The diet during and after chemotherapy should be balanced and hygienic means eat properly cooked home made food. Avoid street food. It should have adequate proteins and carbohydrate. Avoid oily food. You can take non veg but cooked and less spicy. Leafy vegetables, soya nuggets soups and multigrain preparation help in recovery.

Dear lybrate-user, This looks like some kind of Upper respiratory tract infection, and I think it not something to worry about. In case the symptoms are still persisting after you completed a course of antibiotics. Do consult a ENT specialist and get a Laryngoscopy test done. In case of suspicious lesion, the doctor might take a biopsy and we can confirm the diagnosis.

Recently I heard an audio lecture that said health depends on quality and quantity of food and water intake. I have lost one of my friend to intestine cancer at 56. I would like to know more on good food practices.

MBBS, DNB ( Radiation Oncology)
Oncologist, Mumbai
We should eat a healthy balanced diet with lots of fibre, fruits and green leafy vegetables. Refined products like maida which are used in pizzas and other fast food should be avoided. Whole wheat, oats, soya, bajra, ragi etc are good for carbohydrates as source. The more refined food we eat, the more we get prone to colon cancer. There have been many studies that show that refined food has a relationship with colon cancer. I hope that helps!

My friend is a cancer patient. He is not able to express his feelings to explore different things he like. He thinks that he doesn't deserve anything more because of his disease. Its still recoverable for him. Should we go to a psychiatrist for bringing him back to his life mentally.

How sitting before PC for long time can cause cancer? Any study supporting this claim?

DNB, MBBS

No study is supporting this theory. Radiation exposure can cause mutations and cancerous growth, but can't say exactly if mobile or computers emit such radiation to cause cancer.

Cancer Symptoms Men Ignore

1. Problems When You Pee
Many men have some problems peeing as they get older, like:
A need to pee more often, especially at night
Dribbling, leaking, or an urgent need to go
Trouble starting to pee, or a weak stream
An enlarged prostate gland usually causes these symptoms, but so can prostate cancer. See your doctor to check on the cause of the problem. He?ll give you an exam to look for an enlarged prostate, and he may talk to you about a blood test (called a PSA test) for prostate cancer.

2. Changes in Your Testicles
"If you notice a lump, heaviness, or any other change in your testicle, never delay having it looked at.
"Unlike prostate cancer, which grows slowly, testicular cancer can take off overnight" Your doctor will look for any problems with a physical exam, blood tests, and an ultrasound of your scrotum.

3. Blood in Your Pee or Stool
These can be among the first signs of cancer of the bladder, kidneys, or colon. It's a good idea to see your doctor for any bleeding that?s not normal, even if you don't have other symptoms,
Although you're more likely to have a problem that's not cancer, like haemorrhoids or a urinary infection, it's important to find and treat the cause.

4) Breast Changes
"Men tend to ignore breast lumps because breast cancer isn't on their radar"
"But 1% of all breast cancers occur in men, although they're usually diagnosed much later" Don?t take any chances. If you find a lump, tell your doctor and have it checked.
