Breast Cancer - What Should You Do To Reduce Your Risk?

Breast Cancer - What Should You Do To Reduce Your Risk?

While you cannot cure breast diseases, family history and maturing, but there are some hazards or risks that you can control. Keeping in mind the fact that there is no certain approach to forestall breast cancer, there are things you can do that may bring down the hazard. Here are five approaches to ensure your breast's well-being:

  1. Watch your weight: Being overweight or hefty expands breast cancer chances. This is particularly true after menopause and for women who have put on weight as grown-ups. After menopause, the vast majority of your estrogen originates from fat tissue. Having more fat tissue can heighten your chances of getting breast cancer by raising the estrogen levels. Additionally, women who are overweight have a tendency to have more elevated amounts of insulin, than other hormones. Higher insulin levels have been associated with a few tumors, including breast cancer.
  2. Exercise routinely: Many reviews have found that exercise is the sign of having a healthy breast. Studies show that one to two hours of energetic walking each week, lessened a woman’s cancer risk by eighteen percent. Walking ten hours seven days decreased the hazard all the more.
  3. Constrain liquor: Women who have two to five mixed beverages every day have a higher danger of breast cancer than women who have just one drink a day or none . As much as three to six glasses of wine seven days have been found to somewhat increase breast cancer chances. It is not clear how or why liquor raises the hazard. In any case, constraining liquor is particularly essential for women who have other hazard variables for breast cancer, like, breast cancer running in their families.
  4. Restrain time spent sitting: Research has shown that sitting time, regardless of how much exercise you get when you are not sitting, increases the probability of growing cancer, particularly for women. Women who sit six hours or more a day outside of work have a ten percent more serious risk for breast cancer compared to the ladies who sit under three hours a day, and an increased hazard for other cancer types as well.
  5. Stay away from or confine hormone substitution treatment: Hormone Replacement Treatment (HRT) was utilized frequently in the past to control night sweats, hot flashes, and other troublesome manifestations of menopause. In any case, specialists now realize that postmenopausal ladies who take a blend of estrogen and progestin might probably create breast tumors or cancer. Breast cancer disease seems to come back within five years in the wake of ceasing the blend of hormones. Therefore, get a breast cancer test even if you feel a small lump.

Uterus, Vaginal & Cervix Infection - Things You Must Be Aware Of!

All you need to know about infections of the uterus, vagina and cervix

The uterus, vagina and cervix are major components of the female reproductive system. Their functioning impacts the overall growth and health of the female body as well as sexuality.

There are a number of infections and diseases that affect the female reproductive organs. Most cases require clinical care and treatment in consultation with a gynaecologist.

Following are the symptoms of infection in the uterus, cervix or vagina:


There are three main types of infections that affect the organs of the female reproductive system. They are as follows:

1. Vaginitis
This is an infection that affects the vagina. It occurs when the walls of the vagina get inflamed and irritated. It is caused by bacteria, viruses, yeast, chemicals and even clothing. It often occurs due to sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The different types of infections that occur as vaginitis are yeast infection, viral vaginitis, bacterial vaginitis, trichomoniasis vaginitis, etc.


2. Cervicitis
This infection affects the cervix. Cervicitis can either be acute or chronic in nature, depending upon what causes the cervix to get inflamed. It occurs most commonly due to sexually transmitted infections such as gonorrhoea, chlamydia and herpes. This condition is often confused with vaginitis as the two have similar causes and symptoms.

3. Pelvic inflammatory disease
Pelvic inflammatory disease (pid) is a serious infection that affects the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. It is caused by sexually transmitted infections like chlamydia and gonorrhoea and can lead to severe complications. It often causes scar tissue to grow between the internal organs and may even lead to ectopic pregnancy. If not properly diagnosed, it can cause infertility and other chronic problems.

Treating the various infections that affect the female reproductive system depends on a number of factors such as nature of the problem, age and medical history of the patient, and the root causes. Early detection and diagnosis ensure effective treatment which makes it important to see a gynaecologist at the onset of symptoms.

5 factors That Can Cause Endometriosis

First of All what is endometriosis ?

Most of the females are don’t Know what endometriosis is. Endometriosis is a disorder in which tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus. Called “endometriosis”

Here are some common symptoms experience in endometriosis:

  • Pain areas: in the lower back, lower abdomen, pelvis, rectum, or vagina.

  • Gastrointestinal: constipation or nausea.

  • Abdominal: abdominal fullness or cramping.

  • Pain circumstances: can occur during sexual intercourse or while defecating.

  • Menstrual: abnormal menstruation, heavy menstruation, irregular menstruation, painful menstruation, or spotting.

Factors that can cause endometriosis

One of the Cause of endometriosis is Environmental influences:

Environmental factors trigger endometriosis. Several studies point to toxins as contributing to the development of the disease. These toxins can have a cause on the immune system’s response and reproductive hormones.

Second Cause of endometriosis Genetic disposition (sometimes also called genetic susceptibility):

A genetic predisposition outcome from particular genetic variations that are often inborn from a parent.
There is a genetic link in first-degree relatives, so family history could be one of the reasons women develop endometriosis.
 

Third Important Cause of endometriosis is  Metaplasia:

Metaplasia happens when regular tissue changes to abnormal tissue. There are times when the endometrial tissue can, in some cases, swap other types of tissues outside the uterus.

Fourth Cause of endometriosis is Immune system:

 Immune system may not be able to detect and destroy endometrial tissue Problems with the immune system can prevent the destruction of the pain, infertility, and damage caused by endometriosis could be due to an overactive immune system

Fifth Cause of endometriosis of vascular distribution:

Doctors consider that some endometrial fragments may travel through blood vessels or the lymphatic system to other parts of the body.

Taking Inactivated Influenza Vaccine - Is It Beneficial?

Taking Inactivated Influenza Vaccine - Is It Beneficial?

During pregnancy, flu (influenza) can impose serious health implications for both the mother and the child. Due to pregnancy, the risk of developing complications like pneumonia are very high, which can pose as a problem during childbirth. Miscarriage, low birth weight, premature birth are some of the major issues, which might develop if the mother has suffered from flu during her pregnancy. Although flu vaccination during pregnancy has certain risks, it has been observed that in most cases the benefits of inactivated influenza vaccine outweigh the risks. However, Live attenuated influenza vaccine is not recommended at all during pregnancy.

Recommendations across the world suggest that prevention of influenza by administration of inactivated influenza vaccine is the best intervention in pregnancy. The vaccine for Flushould be administered before the onset of flu season. RANZCOG, NHS UK, RCOG, FOGSI recommends inactivated flu vaccine for all the pregnant women unless there are any contraindications. 

Taking inactivated influenza vaccine can be beneficial in multiple ways:


1. Prevents maternal complications: During pregnancy, the heart and lungs go through extra stress. Pregnancy can also severely impact your immune system. Opting for a inactivated flu vaccine can decrease significantly, the chance of falling severely ill due to flu.

2. Prevents pregnancy problems due to flu: Getting infected by flu during pregnancy can increase the chance of miscarriage during childbirth. Administering inactivated flu shots can prevent miscarriage as well as premature birth and low birth weight.

3. Protects the baby after birth: Infants have a huge risk of getting infected with flu after birth. But as vaccines cannot be administered to them until they are 6 months old, it is the best recourse to opt for inactivated flu shots during pregnancy as the antibodies pass onto the child from the mother via placenta. The child can hence be protected from such diseases.

Some concerns
Often, one fear about the vaccine, is the development of Gullain Barre syndrome. This is very rare and the risk of GBS are higher following influenza like illness. Also, if the patient is allergic to eggs they are advised to consult a physician. Flu vaccines have traces of egg protein in it. Certain precautions are taken after studying the patient's medical history. The doctor may keep the patient under observation. Or in certain instances the physician might suggest alternative flu vaccine, which do not contain egg protein. Physicians decide it after studying any prior allergic reaction.

As per  the WHO SAGE position paper, from 1990 to 2009 the vaccine adverse event reporting system database in USA reported only 20 serious adverse events following administration of trivalent influenza vaccine to an estimated 11.8 million pregnant women. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Diabetes + Obesity & PCOS - Did You Know It Is The New Epidemic?

PCOS is a common hormonal abnormality seen mostly in reproductive age groups

Affects about 30% females

Diagnosis is by Rotterdam criteria: 2/3 should be present

  • Oligo/anovulation
  • Polycystic ovarian morphology
  • Hyperandrogenism

It also affects other metabolisms like insulin resistance causing diabetes, impaired glucose tolerance and this ultimately exacerbates obesity

  • It has a genetic predisposition.
  • Pcos can either be lean PCOS or obese PCOS.
  • This classification is important to categorize the causal effect and treatment also differs
  • Insulin-mediated glucose disposal reflects the action of insulin on muscle cells and this is decreased by 30-40% in women with PCOS.
  • This is further worsened with obesity.
  • The endogenous glucose production is also affected and this causes glucose intolerance.
  • They also have menstrual irregularities and infertility due to lack of mature egg ( anovulation ) production.

Treatment

  1. Change in lifestyle and diet
  2. Exercise
  3. Weight reduction
  4. Drugs to regularise menses and antidiabetic drugs
  5. Ovulation-inducing agents with or without IUI for subfertility
