I am 23 years old female I am having lump in right side of my breast and it has increase in size! I don't have any pain in it the lump can move every where in breast. It is movable. Is it cancerous or non cancerous?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
It looks like it is fibroadenoma, it should be removed only if painfull and increasing rapidly in size after initial investigation like mammography and sonography of the breast and/or FNAC. Fibroadenomas are not cancer and don’t increase the risk of developing breast cancer. They occur because of an increased sensitivity to the female hormone estrogen. It is very common can occur in numbers. Most are about 1 to 3cm in size but occasionally, it can grow to more than 5cm. Most fibroadenomas stay the same size. Some get smaller and some eventually disappear over time.

Hi Lybrate user it's better to take course of antibiotics with hormonal pills complete it and observe on ultrasound for the size. It can come again. Try to get surgery with best on as it may damage ovaries and creat fertility issues.

While pressing my breast I get watery discharge my prolactin test n thyroid test were normal m taking opiprol 50 mg n nexito plus 0.5 mg m really worried is it breast cancer no lump in breast freaking out.

Watery discharge from both breasts or multiple ducts in same breast is essentially harmless. Please don't worry. You need to continue your sessions with a psychiatrist (I assume you are seeing one as you are taking Nexito).

watermelon increases your sexual stamina

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

watermelon increases your sexual stamina

Watermelon is one of the richest natural sources of l-citrulline, an amino acid that can help make your erection harder. It’s also loaded with citrulline, an antioxidant that converts to l-arginine once it’s in the body. Like that little blue pill, l-arginine stimulates the production of nitric oxide, which increases blood flow to the penis, strengthening erections.

Eat the fruit plain or mix it with some tabasco, olive oil, lemon juice, feta and mint to make a sweet and savory side dish that will help you go all night long. Bonus: capsaicin, the compound that makes tabasco sauce hot, releases chemicals that increase heart rate, mirror signs of arousal and rev your libido.

The bottom line? munching on this salad will get you in the mood for the evenings' festivities and increase your duration in the sack, too.

I am above 30 and thinking of getting pregnant. Will it be safe?

MBBS, MD
Gynaecologist,
I am above 30 and thinking of getting pregnant. Will it be safe?
When to start a family is a very personal decision. The answer is different for everyone. One has to be ready emotionally and financially and physically. More women over 30 are now giving births than in past generations. About 30% of the first births nowadays occur to women between the ages of 30 and 34. Population studies have shown that, for women, fertility usually starts to decline sharply by the age of 35, and becomes nearly zero by the age of 50. A woman? s fertility begins to decline after her early to mid thirties. This varies from woman to woman. Unfortunately till now, there is no highly reliable diagnostic test to predict a woman? s fertility decline rate. The gradual change in fertility is mainly due to a decrease in the numbers and? quality? of eggs in the ovaries. With increasing age, there is a higher rate of genetic abnormalities and more risks of miscarriages. There are also non- ovarian factors, like with increase in age, the chances of endometriosis, tubal disease, fibroids, polyps, etc. Increase thereby reducing fertility. Other than fertility issue, women who become pregnant after the age of 35, have an increased risk of complications like miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, preeclampsia, hypertension, gestational diabetes, placental complications, intrauterine growth restriction, and caesarean section. Their babies are at increased risk of having low birth weight, chromosomal abnormalities and non-genetic malformations. For women who are under the age of 35, consultation with a gynecologist or fertility expert is usually required after one year of trying to become pregnant. Women aged 35 to 37 should be referred to a specialist after 6 months of trying to become pregnant, and women who are 38 or older and are trying to conceive should be referred to a specialist without waiting. The good news is that many women over the age of 35 become pregnant and have healthy pregnancies and babies finally, the post-35 decline is a guideline. The effect of a father? s age on fertility and pregnancy are not as well defined as for maternal age. There are some research that suggest a decrease in fertility for men over 40, and an increase in genetic disorders for children of older fathers. If you'd like to have children someday but aren't quite ready, you may think of egg preservation.

How to Manage Painful Menstrual Cramps?

How to Manage Painful Menstrual Cramps?

Painful menstrual cramps is a condition during periods in which a woman or girl has crampy lower abdominal pain, sharp or aching pain that comes and goes, or the pains which radiates to lower back and thighs. In some women or girl the cramps are associated with nausea, loose stools, headache and dizziness. Many women or girls have painful menstrual cycles.

During menstrual cycles, the uterus tries to expel out its lining and a hormone called progesterone is responsible for the uterine muscle contraction. The more the prostaglandin level, more painful the cramps.

Sometimes the pains are moderate to severe making it hard to do normal household work, job, or school-related activities during each menstrual cycle. Painful periods or menstruation is the leading cause of absence from school and work among women in their teens and 20s.

In medical terms it is called as 'Dysmenorrhea.'

There are two categories of Dysmenorrhea.

  1. Primary Dysmenorrhea

  2. Secondary Dysmenorrhea

Primary Dysmenorrhea is menstrual pain that occurs around the time that menstrual periods first begin in healthy young women. In most cases, it is not related to a specific problem with the uterus or other pelvic organs.

Secondary Dysmenorrhea is menstrual pain that develops later in women who have had normal periods. It is often related to problems in the uterus or other pelvic organs, like

  • Endometriosis

  • Fibroids

  • Intrauterine device (IUD)

  • Pelvic inflammatory disease

  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

  • Sexually transmitted infection

  • Stress and anxiety

Home remedies to manage the Menstrual Cramps-

  • Take a hot water bag and give hot fermentation to lower abdomen, lower back or thighs

  • Do light circular massage with your fingertips around your lower belly area.

  • Eat light but frequent meals.

  • Healthy nutritional diet is a great help

  • Side lying position with knee folded helps to relieve the pain

  • Practice relaxation techniques such as meditation or yoga

  • Take warm showers or baths.

  • Walk or exercise regularly, including pelvic rocking exercises

  • Loose weight if overweight

When to consult a doctor?

  • Severe pain associated with nausea/ vomiting

  • Increased or foul-smelling vaginal discharge

  • Fever and pelvic pain

  • Sudden or severe pain, especially if your period is more than one week late and if sexually active

  • No relief with routine medications

  • If intrauterine device (IUD) is inserted

  • Heavy bleeding with clots

  • Pain occurs at times other than menstruation, begins more than 5 days before period, or continues after period is over.

Dear user. The fertilization period could range from the 8th day from the first day of your period to 21 st day from the first day of your previous period. In this case, there is a chance of pregnancy if all other requirements are met. Take care.
