Hi, I am 24 year old male and from past 6 years I have acute acne on my face. Also I get temporary pimple like things on my shoulders and upper back regularly, which sometimes have pus formation or they get red, bulge and disappear in a few days time. Are these age related just like acne? Will they go after sometime? Should I get checked for cancer? And What should I do for these?

Hi, I am 24 year old male and from past 6 years I have acute acne on my face. Also I get temporary pimple like things...
The eruption of pimples, acne, black heads, dark spots, scars, pores and oily face are due to excessive sebum secreted by sebaceous glands and hair follicles especially on the face.. Precautions- * Don't scratch or pinch your pimples. This will cause more damage and scars. . * Avoid fried and oily foods. * Prefer fruits and green vegetables. * When you apply any cream, sun screen and the like, clean your face at the earliest, so that there will be no adverse action of the chemicals on the delicate skin of face. *Your skin ‘breaths’ through its pores which are not to be closed for long. HOMOEOPATHIC medicines are taken internally. Hence, NO DIRECT CONTACT with your delicate and sensitive skin, thereby no problem of skin allergy .Homoeopathy has good treatment without causing adverse effects. The medicines work internally, tackle the root of the problem unlike face cream which is a surface treatment.. Take Antim crd 200—once daily in the morning. For further treatment, consult privately (Prime-Rs.149/). Acne riddance package for one month comprehensive treatment is offered at Rs 500/-

Hi, I appreciate you seeking help. Pain/ fatigue/ weakness etc all are commonly seen in cancer patients. For an acute or break through cancer pain, she may require prompt support from her consulting oncologist to help her with the needful analgesics that can relieve her pain. Simultaneously, however, for chronic and persistent pain, she can try the following in addition to her ongoing (pain) medications for relief - (a) eat a wholesome nutritious diet consisting of whole grains and plenty of leafy greens & fresh fruits. Include broccoli, capsicum, tomatoes, garlic, fenugreek, turmeric, leychees, pomegranate, cranberries, red & purple grapes etc all. (b) try including a cup of turmeric milk in her diet plan too, to be taken one to two times daily. Make sure the diet is not only nutritious but also easily digestible. (c) try consuming fresh water fish prepared with extra virgin olive oil. In case she is a vegetarian, you may consider cod liver oil capsules as a substitute/ supplement. (d) ensure that she stays well hydrated. Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of clear fluids daily. Should she be losing weight or cachexic, she can take fresh juices, milk etc all to increase calorie and protein intake suitably. (e) additionally, you can consider a good nutritional supplement consisting of zinc, selenium, beta-carotene, vitamin c, vitamin d3, vitamin e & the b-vitamins, on a daily basis. (f) over and above the diet/ nutrition aspect, she needs to streamline her lifestyle too. A relaxed and stress free mind is also known to have positive impacts on one's health. In this connection, I would advise that she practise relaxation techniques including yogasanas (like'savasana' as mentioned above), meditation, listening to soothing music, social interactions, attending or viewing spiritual programmes etc all to destress, stay relaxed and happy. Stress needs to be controlled well throughout to beat fatigue and the associated weaknesses & pain. Staying relaxed and visualizing positive/ pleasant outcomes helps in pain management. As and how she gets over her weakness, she can start including short walks daily too, in her fitness regimen. (g) daily body massage/ foot massage also helps in such conditions. Acupuncture too can be of help in overcoming pain, weakness & fatigue etc all. Would advise take help from a trained masseur/ acupuncturist here. Hope this helps your mother recover from her present body pains soon. Do take care and all the very best. Please connect should you require further traction.

Lump discovered please help Hi, I have never had a lump in my breast before I'm 24 years old and I'm worried. The lump is on the same side as where I had an abscess removed recently. It's red and inflamed on the outside and tender to touch. Wondering what it could be, thanks x.

MBBS
Sexologist, Panchkula
If the lump is red and tender to touch, it could be another abscess. You should get proper antibiotic treatment before going for its removal.

My father has rectal cancer stage 3b. Doctor did ultra low anterior resection surgery. But after 17 days that puss started to form on rectus and the stitches which got followed by high fever. So he dis that bypass surgery changing his excretion way from anus this stomach. After that he was not getting fever. But now after 7 days again he got fever and yesterday a lot of waste matter got collected in a bag which is connected to his stomach (not in the colostomy bag) and to doctor is saying this is due to catabolism and his tissues are breaking down and coming out which is a serious issue and because of that reason his body is not recovering. His stitches are not yet removed. He is saying that no particular medicine is available to correct catabolism. The only way is to give good nutrition -- any suggestions about that? And right now he was receiving albumin and suddenly he started to feel extremely cold that he got into a half dead situation. The duty doctor put off the albumin (he has received albumin before 4 times) and now he has 102 fever. He has swelling in his feet too. Please give some suggestions. What we should do. He is admitted in hospital from 25 days now.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your father. Well, given to understand that your father has undergone surgery for rectal cancer, its advisable to give low fibre diet from a nutrition standpoint. Following is what you can include in a low fiber diet - (a) Poultry - tender meat cuts, chicken (well cooked and soft), scrambled egg whites. (b) Dairy - Fresh yogurt, cottage cheese, soups etc all (c) Breads & Cereals - White breads, white rice, plain pasta or noodles (d) Vegetables - fresh and well cooked tender vegetables without any seeds, skin, stems etc all. Vegetable soups and juices (without pulp) can be taken too. (e) Fruits - Small amount of soft cooked fruit without skin and seeds, clear fruit juice, well ripened banana in small amounts, (f) Apart from the above-mentioned, he can have dark chocolates, mayonnaise, plain gravy, honey, jellies etc all too subject to his health condition Foods that he needs to avoid are as follows - High fiber foods including peas, beans, lentils, legumes, nuts, processes meats, tough meats, brown rice, dried fruits, raisins, wheat germ, canola, coconut, bran, whole grains and whole wheat products, steamed vegetables, corn, cabbage, cauliflower, onions, potatoes with skin, berries, marmalades, pickles, potato chips, olives, horseradish, cucumber etc all are best avoided. The above-mentioned is subject to your consulting doc's concurrence too. He may have to drink lots of clear fluids unless advised otherwise by his doc. Your consulting medical oncologist can best advise on the next steps post surgery. Again, his swelling in foot which is apparently edema, is possibly due to a failing liver function. Nevertheless, an integrated complementary & alternative medicine (CAM) therapy that extrapolates the best of conventional medicine and naturopathic/ alternative medicine to further treatment shall be a desirable approach to treat, going forward, that may improve clinical outcomes. You may connect with the relevant diagnostics/ treatment history for a suitable CAM traction as is contextually possible. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely

The drug you mentioned is still experimental. We can't advise this at this moment. Diarrhoea is a common side effect after radiation. Majority of my patients with Ca cervix after radiation, complain this. It may persist for long time. It's distressing but not worrisome. So, don't worry.

Does esophagus cancer or chest cancer can be detect on chest x ray pa view while in the zero stages.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking guidance. In fact, a chest x-ray is the very basic test advised by any physician should he / she suspect an abnormality. Barium swallow with x-ray is often employed to detect filling defects, if any. This often paves the way for further diagnostics as deems appropriate. Hope this clarifies.

Dear sir, cancer is a disease related to genetic causes, which is mostly modified by lifestyle. Even if we find out the faulty gene in a person it's Not possible to modify the genes atleast now. So changing lifestyle remains the only viable option apart from vaccination for few infective causes like HPV related cancers.

I am suffering from Benign Prostate Hyperplasia. I underwent two month course of Urimax followed by 6 month course of Finasteride but the frequency of urination is not reduce. I am 68 and have no Diabetes. Walk 10 KMs per day and follow healthy lifestyle. Am a total teetotaler. What is the solution now ? Sonography has revealed only a very minor prostate enlargement.

Dear Sir, this is typically BPH where as urimax and finasteride are not showing adequate results. We can add ayurvedic tablets simultaneously and urinary frequency and retention reduces significantly.

Can You Prevent Ovarian Cancer?

DGO, DNB Gynecology), MBBS

Can You Prevent Ovarian Cancer?

Ovarian cancer is the most common cancer to affect the female reproductive system. The exact cause of ovarian cancer is not yet known and the risk factors involved are numerous, the most prevalent of which are genetic defects and hereditary problems.

The symptoms of ovarian cancer are not always clear and range from pelvic and abdominal pains to irregularities in the menstrual cycle. Women beyond the age of 50 are most at risk of developing this type of cancer and the risk factor increases in case of family history.

Prevention of  Ovarian Cancer

There is no sure shot way of preventing ovarian cancer. Some factors such as genetics cannot be controlled at all. There are, however, ways to take precaution against it through some simple lifestyle choices. A few of those ways are as follows:

Eat a healthy balanced diet which is rich in all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals that the body requires for boosting and maintaining immunity.

Exercise regularly and stay active. Maintaining fitness is an important aspect of preventing the onset of all sorts of diseases and disorders.

Go for frequent health checkups and make regular consultations with your gynaecologist so as to ensure early detection of the problem.

Another notable way of avoiding ovarian cancer is taking birth control pills which are known to reduce the risk levels. However, studies have shown that there are other health risks associated with taking birth control pills and hence you should always consult a gynaecologist for a proper prescription.

chemotherapy in breast cancer depends on a lot of factors. If the patient is her 2 neu negative, then it is usually 12 sessions (some variability is present from institute to institute). If patient is her 2 neu positive, then chemo continues for one year (every three weeks).
